The cafe is pleased to welcome Elijah Cross to our space on November 2.
Elijah Cross is a musician, comedian, and magician based in York, Pennsylvania. Originally from California, he is an alumnus of the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, where he began playing music and acting in stage productions. While still in high school, he began working as a professional magician, and shortly after graduating, he was booking music and comedy club gigs in New York. His stand-up comedy act has earned him comparisons to Steven Wright, Demetri Martin and Mitch Hedberg.
In 2016, he released his debut album, Here’s the Skinny, which showcases a gifted writer who grew up studying legends like Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Carole King, as well as more recent artists like Aimee Mann and Elliott Smith. It’s a set of music that the folk legend Linda Perhacs has called “sterling”. The album blends elements of a variety of genres, from rock, pop and folk to jazz and gospel, but remains a cohesive set, thanks to Cross’s own style appearing on each track.
