Craig has been receiving support from fans and critics alike since the release of his debut album Crazy is Catching on CandyRat Records in 2007. The release, along with his title of 2007 Canadian Fingerstyle Champion, has given him the chance to tour with respected artists such as Andy McKee, Don Ross, Antoine Dufour, and Peter Ciluzzi.
In the third grade, Craig began his music inclination with the cello, which was later replaced by the baritone ukulele. It wasn’t until 1999 that a high school friend introduced him to the acoustic guitar. With the help of lessons, Craig was able to develop his technique and musical style, as well as discover his main influences such as Lindsay Buckingham, Don Ross, and Leo Kottke.
Later in high school, Craig studied classical guitar and planned to attend college as a classical performance major. Craig ultimately decided to get his degree in Sound Recording and Production from the University of New Haven. The choice not to study guitar allowed him to concentrate his musical efforts towards composing and developing his own sound.
