Mid-West native Alexander Craig captivates crowds with his high energy fusion of American roots music. When he's leading his big band, performing with his trio, or playing as a traditional one man band he inspires dancing and audience engagement. His songs are as wide ranging as his character, from swampy gut-bucket blues to blistering punk inspired rock n' roll. With enthusiasm and spiritual drive he promotes unity during these divided times bringing light to our commonalities through song and dance. In addition to being a performer and songwriter he also produces, directs, and edits music videos for himself and for others.

This song is a mantra for anyone who's into motorcycles. It opens with "Two wheels between me and the ground" and closes with "When I shut down at the end of the line, I wont think back that I wasted time" it's full of gusto, gasoline and guts. Recorded with a stripped down three piece arrangement featuring Alex singing and playing guitar, Sam Licari on bass and Peter Hennig on drums. This minimalist approach allows each member to prove and hold his own ground while still allowing the song to breathe. This is the first of five singles to be released this spring "Want the Best" will be next on Wednesday, April 12th.
Possibly the strongest progressive roots album released in 2022. No embellishments or story telling, just raw emotion and honesty sung with gusto and grit. Inspired by a swirl of Rock 'n Roll, Blues, Country, Soul and Punk Rock, it's dynamic and powerful from start to finish. If you've been searching for music with genuine trial by fire perspective you've landed on the right page. Alexander Craig draws from emotions based on real experiences with passion and authenticity on this self titled debut.
Five tracks from this 14 song release can be heard on streaming sites. Limited copies of this album are available in a gate-fold jacket featuring olympic white vinyl and a 30 page booklet with artwork and lyrics for each song.
