An avid lover of life, animals, people, travelling, music and nature, Craig connects with his fans on so many levels beyond his lyrics.
" I've been so very fortunate to have sustained a career writing and performing music. Although I think recognition can be very gratifying, I've never been one to chase awards or base the success of my career on winning or not winning awards.
What really fires me up is turning ideas into songs, bringing those songs to life in the studio and getting the oppotunity perform those songs live for fans. Then from there, watching those songs become part of peoples playlists in life whether they are road trippin, on a beach, around a campfire, at a party or whevever. It's a pretty damn good feeling when that happens and thats what keeps me going. Not to mention all the cool experiences, friendships, songwriting collaborations, shows and travel destinations. Those are defintely some great perks as well and I love sharing that stuff with my fans.
I guess at the end of the day besides connecting with my fans through music, I wanna be the guy who they would wanna sit down with after the show to hang out, have a drink, and B.S. about life."
