Late night balladeer and dirgy pop songwriter Dan Cross (Secret Valley, Lucida) is back with 'Shopping'. It's Dan’s first album under his own name. Where his recent recorded output in Secret Valley is densely layered, though arguably still lo-fi, his latest album is sparser. Loaded with an acoustic guitar, vocals, a 4-track tape recorder and his keyboard sidekick Michael Zulicki, Dan holed up at Jacana Studio and recorded the album in a short inspired period in winter. Dan's songs are soulful, with droll lyrics that are strange, smart and humorous. The track ‘Rock n Roll Used To Be A Friend Of Mine’ embodies this approach. Dan Cross ‘Shopping’ is out on cassette from September 2017 on Albert's Basement.
