With new perspective gained from time away plus mental clarity he acquired from peer support training in mental health, Alex started writing and arranging music for a new full length album that was recently released. Much of this new music features a three piece horn section which accompanies the fundamental guitar, bass, and drum trio. This six piece version of his band (promoted as: Alexander Craig and the Lifters) started performing during the spring of ’22.
Alex notes: “The biggest difference between my new frame of mind verses the Crankshaft period is authenticity, I’m done releasing and performing songs that feature “I” statements followed by an insincere story, moving forward I’m focusing on writing and singing truthfully.”
Alexander Craig continues to be productive with creativity including: writing and arranging songs, producing and mixing studio recordings, directing and editing video as well as making mixed media, functional and visual art.
