Craig D'Andrea


It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you a rising star on the acoustic guitar scene. In 2006 Craig placed 3rd in the fingerstyle competition at the Canadian Guitar Festival in Odessa, Ontario. Craig's fresh take on song structure and groove as well as his personal, yet accessible, melodies have found him loyal fans and a recording contract with Candy Rat Records. Craig recorded his debut release Crazy is Catching for candy Rat on which he demonstrates technique and ability beyond his years. Crazy is Catching will be available through Candyrat on March 15th, 2007. As a bonus, Don Ross contributed to two songs on the CD.

Craig currently plays two Beneteau SJ models. One has Flamed Bubinga back & sides with an Englemann Spruce top and a 25.75" (654mm) scale. The other is a Padouk/Englemann Baritone with a 27" (686mm) scale. It's safe to say that the future of acoustic guitar music is in good hands with players like Craig coming on the scene.
