Biography
Crosswind has been touted as "the hottest band in Texas" (Nette Radio, Dallas, TX). The strong, soulful vocals of Denise Squier have been compared to Ann Wilson of Heart (Diane Sheets, Vocal Consulting Group, Nashville, TN). Her performances are packed with emotion that can raise the hair on your arms! Descriptions of live shows generally include phrases like "The place rocked!" and "They are the emotion-charged real thing", and one of the most compelling, throbbing, and exciting shows in memory". Crosswind has been appearing at major music festivals all over the Lone Star State, headlining concerts, and winning "Battle of the Bands" competitions.

Their 4th CD "The Core" is receiving radio play on several radio stations all over the United States and is stirring up quite a "buzz". One of the CD's tracks "Save Me" will even be included in a movie soundtrack; the movie is set to release in September 2007. "The Core", released in December 2006, is a getting back to the core of Crosswind's style-rock with a blues influence, a meshing of Rush and Heart with Bonnie Raitt.

Crosswind's third CD "Unified" (2005) has had nationwide airplay, led by the release of the song "One Heart", which is still being played on radio today. It has become a favorite even by churchgoers and has been introduced in churches as a praise and worship song to be sung by the church congregation. "One Heart" has become Crosswind's breakout hit and landed the band a distribution deal with Amnesty Records.

Crosswind believes that every song should be from the heart. The music is positive, giving hope to the listener, yet it is honest and speaks truth. That is the reason Crosswind has been accepted in both worlds-mainstream and Christian, which normally keep separate.

Crosswind travels with an entire sound and lighting system, which would be available when necessary.

Crosswind will play just about any event when given the opportunity.
