Hi - my name is Craig and I'm a based in the North East of England near sunny (honestly!) Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. I'm a full-time Primary School Teacher by trade with a love of language, stories, music and culture. Musically, there aren't many genres I don't get on with but my main interests lie in Motown, Soul, Acoustic Rock & Pop and The Blues. Musical styles apart, some of the writers I really admire include John Williams, Mark Knopfler, Aretha Franklin, Parov Stellar, Yann Tiersen, Paul Weller, Norah Jones, John Mayer, Lewis Capaldi, George Michael and James Bay to name but a fraction of a few. Stylistically, I can turn my hand to most things but my stories, poems, lyrics and ideas tend to be quite nostalgic and introspectively honest, driven by the human condition, ambition and attention to detail. I am also self-taught on guitar and piano with an emergent repertoire of simple songs and background accompaniments.
