Jeremiah Craig – Singer/Songwriter – Balladeer

You know that feeling you get when you open up a time capsule that isn’t yours? You see pictures and letters yellowed by decay and you imagine their lives and stories with raw feelings. Each Jeremiah Craig song is a time capsule. They are intriguing and captivating stories.

Jeremiah Craig has always loved the way great old yarn spinners can tell a story around a fire or on a barstool. Music has been a delivery method of stories for centuries and Craig tries to continue that story telling in his own songwriting. Folk ballads are his passion. He includes many story elements in his songs and he’s done so from the start of his songwriting career in the Northeastern U.S. and now continuing it in the western part of the U.S. From Washington to Arizona and beyond.

Jeremiah Craig has been involved in many diverse musical projects over the past few years. In 2004 he made his musical debut with the band Bluegrass Tuesday. In 2006 he formed an original rock/jazz jam band, Jack Swift, who in 2009, went on the “You Don’t Know Jack Tour Spectacular” across five states. Jeremiah Craig started his solo career in 2011 with his first full-length album, Gardener Hands. Released the single “Busy my Spade” the next year and in 2013 released his first project recorded in Arizona, The Commandeer EP. He went on his first solo tour in the fall of 2015 and has started the “Expressway Balladeer” video series documenting his travels as a touring musician.
