Cross Atlantic are country duo newcomer's whose music showcases their talent for storytelling as well as their musical chemistry. They made waves with their 2017 debut single and video for “Mercy,” a track that took them straight to the top of the CMT 12 Pack Countdown and opening slots for Brandy Clark in the UK. They are back with their debut EP, Beginnings that is set for release on 3/15 and the single “Slow,” a foot stomping, spirit raising track will launch on 2/15.

Could there be a more fitting title to Cross Atlantic’s debut EP than “Beginnings”? Nashville’s answer to Stevie and Lindsey, (yes, as in Fleetwood Mac) have never found themselves in an ideal situation, from living on different continents, to the struggles that come with modern relationships and not to mention the intense battle young country musicians have to face in order to be heard; but that’s when great art is created.

Half country queen hailing from Missouri (Karli Chayne) and half English gentleman gone a little Nashville (James Sinclair-Stott), the duo first met by chance four years ago in the downtown Nashville coffee shop Crema. The pair had spent years grafting on their own solo careers (and had found their fair share of success both sides of the pond) but quickly wised up that two is better. After a whistle-stop tour around some of the country’s finest writers and causing more than just a bit of chat on the local scene, Cross Atlantic seem ready to hit the accelerator.

With producer Derek George (co-writer of No. 1 hits by Joe Nichols, Darius Rucker and Blake Shelton) on side as producer and co-writer, James & Karli have truly found their voice and started to tell their story… a story of struggle and a story of overcoming life’s natural hurdles, but at its core, a story about love.

This is the beginning for Cross Atlantic. The beginning of a duo that have developed and nurtured their sound so intensely that it encompasses a bit of everything. It circles through James’ English rock history, Karli’s country upbringing and adds a sprinkle of everything the two have discovered together, creating as sincere a mix of influence as one could find. With sound engineer Julian King (Tim McGraw, Brett Eldridge and Tracy Lawrence) behind the desk to mix, it’s no strange thing that this EP travels through every area of country music as well as putting the duos unique spin all over it. Add some guitar licks from ACM Guitar Player of the Year and CMA Musician of the Year nominee, Derek Wells, along with James & Karli’s effortlessly intertwined vocals and you’ve got a truly honest, interesting and at times introspective piece of work.
