More About Nicole Lisa Craig

I tour full time across Canada most of the year and have performed everywhere from large festivals with over ten thousand people to small, intimate shows in place like...caves!

I fee like music is a part of me, like it runs through my blood and I dont think I could live without.

I have performed with Rick Dutkiewicz Haynes (bassist for Gordon Lightfoot), Valdy, David Henman (co-founder of April WIne) and Donald Quan (formerly with Lighthouse and Loreena Mckennitt). I have released 3 studio albums, and two collections. My music has been played in over 100 radio station worldwide.

I am blessed with a voice that many have said sounds "pure and angelic". I hope my music soothes your soul and maybe even transports you somewhere beautiful!
Fun Stuff about the Artist

Embarrassing Moment

For the first few years that I played acoustic guitar I only strummed with my thumb. Then finally I decided to start strumming with a flat pick. One of the first open mics I did with a pick, nobody was listening and so I started strumming harder. But of course not knowing how to handle it properly yet, the pick went flying off into the audience. The few people that knew me and were paying attention looked embarrassed for me. I will never forget the look on their faces, but probably mine was worse!

My Instrument

The first instrument I started to really study on (I first learned to play piano when I was very young, but nothing too serious) was the flute. I took lessons, played in all sorts of groups and got up to a grade 8 RCM level. My father bought me a beautiful Yamaha silve rflute one day, and I treasured it deeply. Though I left flute behind for awhile though and it ended up sitting longer and longer on my shelf over the years. Last year my one and only sister got married and had the wedding in Cuba. Being a broke musician, the only way for me to get the money to go to the wedding in time was to sell the flute. It was so hard to give it up, but just before the deadline for the trip payment a very nice man called me up and ended up buying it for his wife a wonderful lady, who always wanted to play the flute. I now know it is being loved again :)
