Two things are foremost in Billy Craig’s heart--great songs and great performances. For this small town boy, performing in front of a crowd is like walking and breathing. He just can’t help rocking the house every time. Currently one of the touring guitarist for BROWNSVILLE STATION®, he's a charismatic entertainer who puts the audience first and isn't afraid to walk the edge to get the crowd involved.
Billy’s energetic reputation continues to grow nationally in the mainstream media, such as Forbes, Wall Street Journal, the Today Show, WSM in Nashville, and many other radio shows around the country. In Detroit, he has been featured on Channel 4 WDIV, The Mitch Albom Show, WCSX’s Overeasy Show, WYCD’s The Coop Show, and has produced parodies for Detroit’s Country Radio WYCD with Country Radio Hall of Famer Dr. Don.
Billy’s experience covers years and distance, in venues from smoke-filled corner bars to the largest amphitheatre in his home state of Michigan, the DTE Energy Music Theater. He has performed throughout the USA and abroad, onstage and on live radio.
As a songwriter, Billy’s style tends toward unique storylines and music that is as refreshing as a twist of lime in tequila. Songs on his first CD, This Side of Somewhere, received interest from radio in the USA and overseas. The feature summer song, “Flip Flops,” aired on NBC’s Today Show. His second full-length CD, Next Exit Paradise, oozes the perfect summer blend of rock, beach, and country.
Although Billy is currently releasing Billy Craig An Epic Tale, a guitar suite/instrumental with 28 minutes and 12 thematic pieces, and is working on a new country album to finish in the next year, he loves to ROCK OUT Brownsville Station® style and looks forward to a big summer 2014!
