ABOUT

Craig started playing drums and percussion at the age of three years old. Nurtured by his musical family, Craig gained worldwide notoriety at the age of 17 by winning Drum Corps International’s Multiple Percussion solo and ensemble category in College Park, Maryland in which he was featured in a 2001 issue of Modern Drummer Magazine. Since, Craig has performed regularly all over the United States as well as Europe, honing his craft and becoming one of the region’s top drummers. Craig’s drumming style has been described as “studiously self-aware”, “technical, yet tastefully chaotic”, “the most musical and eclectic jackhammer ever invented”.
