Craig Hallen - Biography:
Music is in Craig's blood, and as both a writer and performer he feels comfortably at home. Having been through the obligatory childhood music lessons, and following graduation from Nelson School of Music's (now Nelson Centre of Musical Arts) 'Contemporary Music Performance' course back in 2004, Craig decided to embark on a music career with the intention of sharing his art with as many people as possible.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Craig specialises in putting together shows for themed events, functions and celebrations - these include special occasions such as Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries. He also performs for audiences/staff in retirement homes and villages where he is regularly employed for occasions such as 'happy hours', staff parties and dinner/dance evenings.
As a professional songwriter, Craig has much original music to his credit, and often incorporates his original songs into his live performances.
