An incredible talent, lovely guy and someone you need to have at your wedding!

5 stars - Ian Craig are Highly Recommended booked Ian Craig for their Wedding in Shropshire May 2019

“Having just celebrated our wedding this weekend and had the best few days of our lives we wanted to write this review ASAP to call out what a big part Ian was. The music was so important for me when planning, which meant hundreds of hours looking at bands and singers. As soon as we found Ian though we knew we had our singer- he has one of the best voices I’ve heard. On the day itself he was superb: he was really flexible and incredibly likeable. Everyone was talking about how good his set was- we would have asked him to play all day / night if we could! In summary an incredible talent, lovely guy and someone you need to have at your wedding or special occasion.”


Ian was amazing, and definitely the right choice for us.

5 stars - Ian Craig are Highly Recommended booked Ian Craig for their Wedding in Staffordshire

“Ian was amazing from the word go. We had booked him in advance of around a year before, we got his details around 3 weeks before the wedding, and straight away he made me feel at ease. We exchanged messages through email and then WhatsApp as I had a special request for him on the night, which he kindly accepted. Nothing was a problem, always responding quickly. He arrived early to the venue to set up, and helped us out last minute to be our DJ as we were let down by a previous supplier 1 week before the day. Thank you!! Ian’s voice is amazing, but his presence, personality and attitude go a long way!! He was an excellent entertainer and all of our guests have commented about him! Ian saved our day and made it even more magical for us! Thank you so much Ian !!”

Great to see local talent performing and we were really pleased we chose Ian and thank him for looking after us so well”


Outstanding - You won't be disappointed

5 stars - Ian Craig are Highly Recommended booked Ian Craig for their event in Derbyshire

“I booked Ian Craig for my 40th birthday party through Alive Network. It is the second time I have used Alive Network who, as per my previous experience, were excellent from the very start and make the whole process of booking an artist or band incredibly easy.  Ian was outstanding, a really great guy with an excellent varied set list and a brilliant voice and I could not have picked anyone better. Ian contacted me well in advance of my party to sort the finer details and was happy to play requests too. On the night everything ran well and I lost count of the amount of my guests telling me how good they thought Ian's performance had been. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian for parties, corporate events or weddings .... actually, I already have, several times since my party last Saturday! ”

Full Biography

Highlights
* Talented singer-guitarist with a wealth of experience!
* Vast repertoire including music from the Beatles, James Bay, Bruno Mars, Stereophonics, Stevie Wonder and more!
* Previous experience includes supporting America, White Lies, Chuck Berry and Reverend & The Makers!

I started writing songs and playing music quite late, at the age of 19. So there you go, it's never too late to start! Before then I was stuck in dead end jobs and thought there's got to more to life than this.
I'd always played around with words and poetry, but I wanted to completely express myself and learnt to play guitar, then later the piano. It was the best thing I ever decided to do!

I met my best friend that first year, Dom, at music college and we started a band, Frame of Mind. Two years later we were touring Europe supporting 'America' encoring with them playing 'Horse with no Name'. Absolute madness!
I had to pinch myself back then.

I did a lot with Frame of Mind. I learnt my trade most importantly, not to mention another two European tours with America plus an Italian tour supporting Chuck Berry! Also, Pistoria Blues Festival with Jerry Lee Lewis, and winning a battle of the bands competition supporting 'Status Quo' in front of 10,000 people was pretty crazy!

A few years later I started a band called '1913'. We wrote some amazing songs together and signed a record deal with 'Modern English'. We later released a single 'Atlantis' with them and played with White Lies & Reverend & the Makers.

Music has given me the chance to travel the world, especially the last few years, not to mention the people I've met and bonds I've made along the road.
The last 13 years have been an unbelievable rollercoaster, here's to another God knows how many years ahead.
