Craig is a founding member and one of the principal singer/songwriters of the band Odds.  Odds inventive and soulful approach to classic pop won them many fans among their musical peers.  A friendship with the comedy troupe Kids In The Hall offered Craig the opportunity to write the musical score for the 1995 feature film Brain Candy. He received a Genie nomination for the film’s signature song Some Days It’s Dark. In 1999 he wrote and recorded the score for Bruce McCulloch’s first feature film Dog Park. Some of Craig’s work has been for and with artists like Rosanne Cash, Colin James, Gin Blossoms, Wide Mouth Mason, Steven Page, Damhnait Doyle, and the Waltons.  Craig and longtime friend Jesse Valenzuela penned and performed the theme song for CTV’s outrageously successful Corner Gas. He has toured with Kids in the Hall as musical director and guest performer and worked in some capacity on a few of the Kids’ other endeavors – producing and writing with Bruce McCulloch on his album The Drunk Baby Project and performing with Kevin MacDonald in his show Hammy & the Kids. Recently Craig created the music for Kids in the Hall’s Death Comes to Town and is concurrently scoring Brent Butt’s new series Hiccups for CTV.
