Jazz/Saloon singing at its best, in the tradition of Sinatra, Bennett, Chet Baker, and more. Sifting through thousands of his favorite songs, Craig narrows down this collection to a selection ranging from the familiar standard with a new jazz beat, to the seldom-heard Great American Songbook, to interpreting and covering pop material. Craig is known for headlining internationally in the most celebrated nightspots. Infamous nightclub impresario Regine recognized his talent and asked him to create a music room at her Park Avenue boite “Cafe Reginette. From there Craig worked to sold-out audiences at three clubs at once “Freddy’s”, “East Five Three” (with guests like Ann Hampton Callaway, and numerous others), and “Mickey’s” (with Cissy and Whitney Houston and Karen Akers). It has been his great pleasure to have worked with and known jazz legend Teddi King. He has worked with Murray Grand, Betty Buckley, Nancy LaMott, and recorded with Barbara Cook, Kaye Ballard, and Faith Prince.
Craig is an internationally known singer/song-stylist, actor and author!
