About the Artist:
A life straddling cultures and continents is like a split personality-potentially alienating, often accompanied by questions of belonging. Vic and the Crux is Victor-Andres Cruz' brainchild and for him, the dichotomy fueled a creative journey.
Vic spent his first 12 years in Colombia: steeped in folkloric music, surrounded by green, mist-hung mountains and farmlands with contrasting cityscapes. He took naturally to traditional Colombian sounds, immersing himself in a colorful field of musical expressions, bonfires and storytelling before he was old enough to tie a shoe.
Moving north to the US on the cusp of teenage years, he was infused with new terrains of sound and experience. He consumed ‘60s and garage-band rock, jazz, folk and both symphonic and marching bands. And soon, he was lending his voice and instrumental talents to countless bands and projects—each leaving upon him an indelible mark.
Striking a musical balance of the countries that wrought him became a study in both culture and personal history. They’ve culminated in Alusión, his debut EP which he has defined as Cross-Cultural Folk.
Vic and the Crux combines the Colombian sounds of Vic's childhood and the eclecticism of his years growing up in the US, with reflective travel overseas and several frosty winters in Boston. His slow builds, sultry English and Spanish lyrics, melancholic melodies, echoing atmospherics, and lush instrumentals are the result of a rich tapestry of dreams, memories and love for home—wherever home is.
