Back with another solo outing, Cros brings his songwriting skills to the forefront with a track about Covid. The back-to-back winner of the Phoenix Blues Society Blues Challenge in 2018 and 2019 then again in 2021, the veteran of stage and studio clearly has everything he needs to make great music. Having worked with bands like Cyprus Hill, Johnny Winter, B.B. King, and James Brown (tap the links for eBay swag) across the years, Cros has been regarded as a true master to be sought after wherever he goes. By blending favourite genres and forming modern-sounding frameworks with roots in the classics, Cros never ceases to put the muse in music with his intelligent designs.
A smooth snare and kick bass rhythm pushes out the music as guitars join in to add its luminous tones. A quick marching pace frames a slower and meaningful progression of melody that builds with voice and melodic electric guitar. The music draws in on twinges of sadness and memories of life before the big change, those we have lost and the feelings of being isolated build with a merrier and stoic resilience to stay upbeat and positive. If we need a pillar to lean on then This Time by Cros gives us a sturdy and well-grounded rendition of personal strength.
