From Fort McMurray, Alberta!
After cutting his teeth and gaining invaluable experience owning the road on the honkytonk circuit from the hard scrabble town of Fort McMurray in Canada’s tough and vast northern oil sands, to racking up the miles in every direction through western Canada and beyond, Craig has become a bona fide national star and is ready to shine south of the border.

 I’ve been so very fortunate to have sustained a career writing and performing music. Although I think recognition can be very gratifying, I’ve never been one to chase awards or base the success of my career on winning or not winning awards.                                                                                                 

What really fires me up is turning ideas into songs, bringing those songs to life in the studio and getting the oppotunity perform those songs live for fans.”

– Craig Moritz
