Craig – Soloist/Duo/Trio
Singer-Songwriter originally from Sandbach in Cheshire & now living in Leeds, Craig is one of our most experienced musicians, who never fails to impress the crowds. With his skillful guitar playing and soft vocal, Craig will suit any special occasion or event.
I started learning the guitar at 15 when Oasis were on the scene, with the help from my Dad who’s 6-string guitar skills are crazy-good and very inspiring to anyone wanting to learn! My music taste, however, is very broad so with that in mind, I’ve been able to incorporate lots of different styles/genres into my day to day set lists and I am always happy to mix-up, mash-up or medley-up wherever possible.
Before I really put all my focus into my music, I trained to be an actor but somehow singing slowly took over as my main passion and I decided to make a career out of it. After moving to Leeds I played at many open mic nights, started gigging a little more and self produced my own original album in 2010. I’ve also been a regional finalist for Live & Unsigned and I was also the runner up in the pop category for the Music Crowns competition in 2010, which was not only an achievement for myself but such a wonderful and great experience.
In the past few years I’ve been a regular fixture at many of Leeds vibrant venues, such as Sky Lounge and Clayton’s and I now play all over at many weddings, party’s, events etc which fit perfectly round my gigs in Leeds.
What can I say….I like life and I like to live it!
Other than music I also love travel, food, good friends, meeting new friends, social, film, theatre, TV (good TV, not soaps or reality shows, with the exception of the Great British Bake-off!)), photography, nature, anything creative and anything inspiring really as it’s what life is all about.
