Since arriving in Queensland from Liverpool, England in 2010 and forming his Swing Band, Craig has performed with many Australian greats at a variety of events; from singing with Jessica Mauboy at Redland City’s ‘Christmas by Starlight’ concert and headlining Logan’s Jazz and Shiraz Festival in 2012 to having James Morrison’s first lady of jazz, Emma Pask open his Big Band Show at the Arts Centre Gold Coast and later that year performing in front of 10,000 people at Logan City Mayor’s Christmas Carols with ‘The Voice’ stars Mahalia Barnes and Prinnie Stevens.

For the past three years Craig has been the vocalist of choice for the prestigious Mater’s Little Miracles Ball, and has also performed with his swing band at numerous business awards, gala balls and corporate events, both in Queensland and interstate. In addition, Craig is very sought after for luncheon events and daytime charity fundraisers with a more laid back jazz trio.

Craig and the band have also become a popular choice for festival music events and have enjoyed the success of a sell-out show at Hoot! Adelaide Hills Jazz Festival, as well as capacity audiences at the Brisbane Festival, Ignite Redlands Festival, The Wynnum Manly Jazz Festival, Warwick’s Jumpers and Jazz and singing with swing legend John Morrison’s band at the Brisbane Jazz Club as special guest vocalist at the Big Band Festival in 2013. A highlight of the Festival season was performing the closing set with his 12-piece band at the ‘Redcliffe Remembers’ three day Celebration.

This year Craig premiered his brand new show, ‘The Beatles Swing’ to a sell-out audience at the Arts Centre Gold Coast. This unique show sees Craig & his Swing band performing 25 Beatles classics swing style.
