Craig Kelley's latest release, Back in the Fold, is full of new beginnings and a majestic end. Hailing as 3-time and reigning Central PA Guitar War's champion, Kelley has been featured in the international Guitar World magazine, led his band in winning several Battle of the Band competitions and logged over 500 performances in his young career. With four CD releases under his belt, Craig deems his latest as having the greatest impact, on others as well as himself.
"This CD has really transformed me from the inside out. I was out there searching... Seeking answers, Truth, for the way I should live my life. Life was hard. I couldn't make it on my own. There had to be something more. And it was in a still small voice that I heard the answer. It was like a huge burden had been lifted. I was the lost sheep in Matthew 18:12 and God carried me home. Not only did He carry me home but when we got there He threw a party for me in celebration! How awesome!" - Craig
If you read the liner notes for 'Back in the Fold' you will notice that Craig used many musicians from all over the world. Including some from as far away as Tel Aviv, Israel.
"To be honest, I was shocked to learn that these guys were in Israel. They had a California telephone number. It was another lesson in life for me. Music is truly universal. It crosses language barriers. All the musicians on this CD did a fabulous job and I am extremely grateful." - Craig
The result is an edgy rock album with nicely textured acoustic guitars and keys. Kelley's powerful vocals fluidly deliver a message of faith, hope and love. The message is clear and is intended for all audiences.
"God cares for you deeply and will never leave you. He wants to carry you home and celebrate. Faith starts with the first step." - Craig
