=== Christ Xalted Inside === For the past 4 years, Cxi has been developing and crafting a unique approach to Christian Electronica. === The Ministry === 'A primary focus was placed on the words of each piece to embody a concept that was expressed once as...'There is no Christian music, only Christian lyrics' by Pastor Rick Warren. Every style of music is potentially a Christian song. But after reading the liner-notes of a song, if how it was inspired are still obscure, no matter what the notes are doing, if it harbors too many humanistic aspects in it's verse and chorus, or if you can't tell what part of scripture it came from...how is it Christian Music? I want to be the kind of Electronic artist that does something different that can answer that question." - Cxi Spring 2006 - interview IZRI Media Productions. The music that Cxi explores, knows no bounds. === The Music === In Cxi's "Electrinity", memorable melodies and remarkable interludes swirl about, without losing it's thundering, edgy beats or a healthy sense of fun by not taking itself seriously. Jesus and his words are the typical focus in a Cxi song, yet "No More Frozen Dreams" touches upon the idea of casting off Fear for Faith and anticipating glorification in heaven. Although wearing so many hats was an exciting and exhausting process for Troy, he feels inspired more than ever. In 2007, Troy looks to complete several singles and put the final touches on his sophomore and junior albums, "The Missing Connection" which boasts a more mature sound and eclectic mix and 'Living for Jesus' a genre mixed album with some R&B takes on familiar hymns. === The Man === Cxi is an Electronica/Jazz/R&B group created by Troy Goss who does the Composing/Writing/Producing/Engineering/Arrangement and Performing of all the songs on this, his first full album. Driven by a godly desire to share the Good News in fresh and inspiring ways, the biblical concepts in each song are clear. Not content to just shoulder the responsibility of what's on the inside, he also designs his own CD covers. "When you do it the indie-artist way, there's a lot you just have to do yourself, because that's all you've got and God's grace is sufficient to make miracles happen - and they do." Not shy about wanting to communicate with those who are inspired by this type of music, his blogspot is available for comment at our official blog.

'...the I for 'Inside', because that's exactly where Christ is supposed to be exalted.' - Troy Goss, from the Electrinity CD, IZRI_Media_Interviews - Feb 2005.
