UK based Australian Mixer, Recording Engineer and Producer.
Craig has over 20 years’ experience in audio production. Beginning in radio as a volunteer at the age of 13, Craig discovered an unused 8-track Multitrack tape machine igniting his recording career, crucially before the analog world of tape and mixing consoles would all but disappear.
After some country radio gigs, study at SAE, and a number of market leading capital city radio engineering positions, Craig landed a position as house engineer at the then brand new, state of the art Hippo Studios, where he operated an Amek Angela II console, DA88 digital and Studer analog 24 track multitrack systems.
Sessions at Hippo lead to Craig connecting with prodcucer Henry Seeley, and recording live albums for Adelaide based worship band Planetshakers. This presented the opportunity to assist Grammy Award winning US Mixer, J.R. McNeely on a number of mixes for those same albums in SSL equipped studios using the PARIS and Pro Tools DAW systems – an experience that no amount of study could match, and would solidify Craig’s passion for the studio.
After moving to Melbourne, Australia in late 2003, Craig spent 6 years producing for the countries leading radio network, DMG radio, at the then number 1 FM radio station, Nova100, and pioneered the commercial audio department of it’s brand new sister station, vega91.5 (now Smooth FM,) producing multiple commercial award finalist entries .
He also produced/co-wrote/performed jingles, and recorded and mixed artist performances (including The Fray, Colin Hay, Roachford, Metro Station, World Party, Dashboard Confessional, Donavon Frankenreiter and Sara Bareilles,) for the DMG Radio Network.
The notoriously close radio deadlines have honed Craig’s ProTools engineering, editing and mixing skills to a mandatory lightning speed. It was during this time that Craig developed the “CDW-DAW-Editing-Method,” Utilising the Nostromo gaming keypad controller. Providing a more streamlined, ergonomic, less painful and even quicker method of editing in Pro Tools.
Remaining heavily involved with the now Melbourne based Planetshakers, Craig tracked/post produced a total of 18 live and studio album recordings from 2001, to mid 2009, and assisted Henry Seeley and J.R. McNeely during mixing in various SSL K, G and E equipped studios.
Moving to Hong Kong, one of the world’s busiest and most condensed cities in 2010, Craig recorded and mixed projects for numerous Hong Kong and mainland Chinese artists. In 2 and a half years in Hong Kong he worked regularly with local producer Josef Tse and other local artists, while keeping in touch with the western world and mixing Australian, US and UK based projects.
Looking for a change of pace, in late 2012 Craig relocated to Manchester UK. Where he is mixing and recording projects for local, National and International artists. He has also built a studio facility in collaboration with !Audacious Band songwriter/producer Matt Hill, while also operating his own Mix Suite.
With his own personal Mix Suite, and access to Greater Manchester’s best studio facilities, Craig is available for recording and mixing projects around the UK, and Unattended Mixing via internet internationally, with streaming options available.
