Craig then went on to have a varied career in music as the guitarist for The Smiths, Terry Hall, Morrissey, Alison Moyet, Roddy Frame, The Adult Net, Black Grape, Buzzcocks/FOC, The Bluebells, The Blue Orchids and so many more.
Since learning the guitar as a child and all throughout his career, Craig has always written music, particularly instrumentals. He knew he wanted to progress to composing music for media and since 1998 he has been writing extensively for film and television, as well as songwriting for other artists.
Craig's impressive sense of melody is inspired by his favourite melodic songwriters and composers growing up, he was obsessed with The Beatles, Burt Bacharach, John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith, Ennio Morricone. Craig naturally looks at his music through a cinematic lens, which lends itself well to composing for media. Craig enjoys the freedom that production music allows to write in many different styles, he is able to write moving and atmospheric tracks even when he is exploring styles outside his comfort zone. Craig’s extensive career allows him to take inspiration from scenes and scenarios in his imagination to create expressive soundscapes that fit any brief.
When not involved in music, Craig enjoys spending time with his partner travelling to new places and experiencing different cultures.
