The Cross Trust was instrumental in allowing me to record, manufacture and promote my debut album, Away From My Window. As a student, it is often hard to secure project funding, but a generous grant from The Cross Trust alleviated some financial worries. This allowed me to enhance my creativity and provided me with the resources needed to record 10 traditional, self-penned and contemporary songs, which will hopefully allow me to take my career in folk music to the next level.
