"Songs like "Wearing Down" and "Fall Down Here" set a mellow melodic mood or hyperactive head bopping "oh yeah!" feeling. With the spirit of his influences haunting his vibe, sound, and association, it's likely that Craig Maxim has set his bar high. Craig's intricately honed skills, come together magically from beginning to end of every song."

- Nadya Nataly - Journalist/Independent Publicist

Bio

SINGER / MUSICIAN / SONGWRITER

Craig Maxim is a versatile and accomplished lead vocalist, musician and songwriter. He is a prolific Songwriter, and has performed across America and Internationally, with audiences reaching tens of thousands. In addition to singing and songwriting, he also plays guitar and keyboard. Famous artists, celebrities and music industry heavy-hitters, have taken notice and praised his talents, so that now, the name Craig Maxim is destined to become a household name, as he pursues his passion and love for music and humanity.

Rock and Roll music was born in the South, and this is also where Craig's musical roots are found. Craig was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, the same city as Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, 38 Special, Blackfoot, and where the Allman Brothers first formed. Other notable bands and performers from Jacksonville, include: Yellowcard, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Limp Bizkit, Shinedown and the legendary Ray Charles! There's something in the water in Jacksonville, and Craig grew up drinking it!

When MC Hammer heard Craig sing at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Florida, he made a point of meeting the singer, complimenting him as "An Amazing Vocalist". His songwriting has been praised by leading music industry professionals as "Emotional", "Powerful" and "Platinum Worthy". Craig began touring the road at the age of 12 years old, first with his mother's band, a very successful showband which toured the East Coast for more than 6 years non-stop! Subsequently, Craig founded several successful bands of his own, including a well known regional act!

Currently, Craig is pursuing a solo career as an entertainer and songwriter. For decades, notable and established artists have wanted him to license his music and songs for their own projects, but only recently, has he decided to take this next step, and write music for up and coming bands and artists. Very recently, he has been solicited by representatives of a famous country star, as well as a famed Pop and R&B producer who has produced Madonna and Michael Jackson, and has begun a new entertainment company to develop new artists, and hopefully, tomorrow's stars. He is in negotiations for both offers, and will be providing details, as these projects progress.

If you are an established or up and coming artist or their representative, and are looking for your next hit or a break-away song that can put you over the top, send an email to: craigmaxim@yahoo.com to discuss your needs. Craig also does studio work, on vox, instruments and professional arranging.

PHILOSOPHER / ACTIVIST

Craig Maxim has been a world-renowned activist against destructive cult-like groups and institutions who employ manipulative techniques to gain control over a person's psyche and life, through subtle forms of mind control. He opposes such groups, because freedom of mind and expression, are essential tools in fulfilling our destinies and finding the true purpose of our lives.

Craig believes music is not merely a hobby or profession, but instead a powerful medium which has the ability to change lives, and consequently, the world, whether for good or for ill. He chooses to use his music to benefit individuals and the world, through an honest assessment of reality, but with a positive message and strategy for improving the lives of others. He seeks to accomplish positive change in the world, through encouraging a movement of like minded individuals and groups. It is rarely possible for a single individual to change the world. But, what is possible, and has, in fact, occurred throughout history, is for a single individual to be so committed to a cause, that he inspires others to work towards the same ends, and TOGETHER, bring the world to a higher understanding and level of cooperation.

LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING!
