Craig appreciates a wide variety of music and believes that certain styles suit certain songs and that there is no point trying to force them to fit otherwise. He often writes lyrics as reflections on personal events and uses his emotions as muses for his works. He finds frustration, fear and disillusionment are just as inspirational as love and the good times are.
His songs are a journal of his inner most thoughts and feelings and are a way of “keeping sane”. When writing he finds that songs are written one of two ways; either playing around on the piano developing melodies or by a random flash of inspiration that pops into his head such as a word or sentence that creates a theme for a song.
Some times the inspired moments don’t actually make it to becoming a full song for Craig, but some do and those great moments are what you will find in his album “Sometimes”.
