All the music is pure - all is a true story. It's songs with complete soul. Maybe that's also why he's batting .1000 on the radio; (1 for 1 with a grand slam home run)- on the ONLY station ever submitted to . . . he is the #1 album played on the FM station (out of 1200 albums) - for the past 4 years. One of Craig's songs received an Honorable Mention from the 2007 Billboard International Song Contest. Most recently, the American Song Contest named him one of 'December's Top Songwriters' and last February a 'Suggested Artist.' Bio / History I grew up in Virginia in a carefree, happy childhood. This was not to last, however. After moving to outer Los Angeles during high school, hard times hit; and continued through college. After singing and playing in a few garage bands, I hung the harder rock up and became introspective. Influences of the Broadway musical Evita and Dan Fogelberg came and went. At the end of high school, I began writing-- not by trying to; but by music and lyrics that just came flowing out of me; especially due to some very deep and shattering experiences (with girls). Several years ago, one studio owner said, 'You have a catalog of songs'. He compared me to the Moody Blues, Lindsey Buckingham, and the Alan Parsons Project. Last year, a sixteen year old girl (who mostly listens to KIIS FM 102.7) -during and after a couple good listens- compared me to Kevin Lyttle, on a few occasions. Also, most lately; I've received tons of VERY nice compliments on my singing (after karaoke primarily); including from the guitarist from Sweet! ('You really do have a good voice.') Many thanks also to the good people of St. Anne's Church for being so estatic and offering to pay money for my (nonexistent at the time) 'album' whenever I soloed there recently. In the 1990's, for 11 years; I was a paid choir director and singer for the Catholic Church (for the youth orientated mass). Since then, others have compared me to 80's music in general. I kind of like to think of it (in a comparison), sounding like Elton John, Abba, and others. I also, besides in the way back high school garage bands; sang at a convention in Pasadena, for a fashion show, et al.
