Craig’s passion for musical exploration began at an early age with classical piano lessons at age seven.
Born and raised in Vancouver BC, he has played in many groups, writing and performing across Canada and the US since 1983.
In 2005 while living in New Orleans, Craig formed the contemporary instrumental jazz combo, Springer/Ducommun Group eventually signing to the Maximum Jazz/Universal Music Group.
As co-leader and co-composer, he helped steer performances at the prestigious Montreal and Vancouver International Jazz Festivals and helped garner a West Coast Music Award nomination for Best Instrumental Group.
Along the way Craig scored short independent films, co-composed brand specific corporate videos and composed the score for a multi-media modern dance performance.
Now settled in scenic Sea to Sky country on Canada’s West Coast, Craig spends his time composing for Film/TV; with pieces ranging from lush orchestral/symphonic works to minimalist piano/percussion and contemporary electronic pieces.
Craig also excitedly offers his wealth of musical knowledge and experience to his community as an instructor, recording engineer, songwriter, mentor, or even sometimes just that guy with a guitar around the campfire.
