“On Christmas Day, 1977 I got my first record player and my first record, ‘Bobby Bland and B.B. King Together Again...Live’. Three days later, on my 11th birthday, I got my first guitar. I was too young to understand where Blues music came from or what it was about, but I felt it touch me deeply. Today, I feel privileged to be part of this uniquely American artform. I am grateful for all the Blues artists who have had a sincere effect on me.” - Tom Craig
"MY GOAL FOR THIS RECORD WAS TO MAKE IT 100% BLUES"
Tom Craig - Good Man Gone Bad
Three years ago Tom Craig burst onto the Delaware Valley music scene with his inaugural CD of all original blues and roots material. His critically acclaimed debut received worldwide airplay and reached #26 on the Roots Music Report Radio Chart.
Harmonica ace Mikey Junior produced his sophomore release Good Man Gone Bad and Grammy nominated Dave Gross mixed and mastered the 13 tunes with Craig superbly accompanied by a veteran band. Tom's passionate vocals, stinging guitar, and tasteful songwriting evoke an array of emotions. There is no doubt that Good Man Gone Bad will be Tom Craig's breakout album.
"Tom Craig is a bad man. Enjoy his new record, I do."
John Németh - Two Time Blues Music Award Winner
"It's always exciting to see and hear that special spark of soulful originality in a musician. I first met Tom Craig in Philadelphia at the Twisted Tail Sunday Blues Jam. He plugged in and quickly kicked off some compelling original blues that I found inspiring. We talked and immediately became friends. Working with everyone involved in this project was an immense pleasure and we hope you find Tom's blues inspiring."
