Craig's words and music have probably been described most accurately by blogger 'Girl Afraid' as 'heartbreaking and brave' due to his music being heavily centred around his emotional lyrics which are 'very personal and nothing but sincere'. Taking influence from artists such as Conor Oberst, City and Colour and The Felice Brothers, Craig has a simplistic musical style that creates space and an uncomplicated backdrop for his heartfelt words.
Alongside writing and playing for a number of bands over the years that have played a string of high profile venues, live sessions on BBC Introducing and achieved media recognition, Craig has been writing his own acoustic music and has now turned this into his only concern. A concern that he shares with many other writers which is to share his art with as many people as possible in the hope of a personal connection and resonance with his audience.
His first EP titled 'A Lot To Talk About' contains 4 songs recorded in his home studio in 2016 epitomizes Craig's journey and serves as a documentation of his life, how he saw it, up to that point, dealing with confusions in love and identity. Craig sites one of his proudest achievements as getting the opprtunity to follow the blues route up through America from New Orleans to Chicago and being invited by his friends in the band Schwervon to play at The Cowtown Mallroom in Kansas City MO. This consisted of a set of original music, self-penned songs which he has also been honoured enough to have played on BBC Introducing by Alan Raw. Being from Halifax, Craig is enjoying the cultural revolution that is taking place there at the moment and regularly performs at The Grayston Unity bar. A bar championed lately on 6 music due to it being England's smallest independent music venue and its list of brilliant contemporary artists including Nadine Shah, Jeffrey Lewis and Ivan Campo. Craig was also fortunate to have opened for Barry Hyde on his recent Futureheads anniversary tour.
Looking forward he hopes to gain more gigs in which he is playing to audiences that appreciate the sincerity he delivers in his performances and to have more opportunities to play alongside more artists that he has looked up to.
