"Hidden Gem"

Hidden gem

author: Neil Burman
Beautiful easy listening folk rock with wonderful harmonies reminiscent of The Eagles and Australia's Little River Band . All original material written by Craig (and one track co-written with his brother) evoke the sights, sounds and freedom of Western Australia with excellent musicianship, balance and production values. Buy it. -

"The City and The Sea"

So how would I describe Craig's music?...pensive, soulful, soothing, uplifting are words that first spring to mind.
Vocally, with Craig, one never knows what to expect, as his relaxed but powerful voice soars to heights that make you listen up and say 'Wow! How was that!'
He was impressive when he fronted Perth Hard Rock Legends SARACEN at the Music Industry Reunion Show at Metropolis in 2009, however,
'The City and the Sea', Craig's debut album, is decidedly different, and presents a softer side to his brilliant songwriting.
Quite a few of the songs are dedicated to close friends and family, and one can certainly feel the depth and warmth within each one, as was obviously intended.
With perfectly placed vocal harmonies throughout, a variety of stringed instruments blended beautifully with intricate and interesting chord structures,
and played by some of Perth's most accomplished musicians, each song is unique and has it's own journey and story to tell, taking your mood away to different mindsets and places.

Fave tracks?...that's truly hard to say. Each song is unique and strongly written. A quality sound production brings out the best in them all.
'Here with You' is very 'pretty' , 'Lovin' Cup' 'Open The Eye' and 'The Meaning of it All' are all very smooth, and 'Five Minutes' will touch the heart of our Indigenous and 'Earth loving' listeners.

Other tracks are up tempo, playful and have a catchy bluegrass edge. It is definately one of those albums with no 'lowlights' or 'fill in' songs.
The CD was recorded at Nivram Sound Studios in Northbridge, Perth,Western Australia in late 2009, and engineered and mastered by Craig himself and Les Williams.

Overall, whatever music is your preference, I can't imagine anyone not liking or at least appreciating this CD. It's classy, slick and very easy to listen to!
Well done Craig! Looking forward to more!

Craig Pinkney - The City and Sea - Album, released December 09.
Hard copy c.d.s and digital downloads are available from
or from itunes.



A good song. It works stripped bare - a guitar and a voice or with a fully produced band arrangement. Craig is an award winning songwriter and vocalist, and an experienced and polished performer. Having played support to acts such as Chris Isaak, Billy Joel and James Brown ( to name a few ), Craig is equally at home in a concert arena or intimate club.
Previously a member of the trio "Pink & White Bridge",Craig released three albums under this banner before the group folded in 2006. "P.W.B" recieved wide acclaim for superb vocal harmonies and excellent songwriting. The trio also toured nationally and overseas and rode out cyclone Rosita, which devastated Broome, Western Australia in 2000.

Craigs new band, (dubbed the "Kingston Reefs") are some of the best musicians in Perth.
Mick Burn ( Drums) and Bob Fortescue (Bass) previously formed the rhythm section of legendary Aussie blues man Matt Taylor.
Damon Carren is a renowned slide and blues guitar player and recording artist.
Richard Braham is an accomplished piano man, able to turn his hand effortlessly between styles - be it honky tonk or jazz.
Danielle, Gabrielle and Natalie De Roberto are three sisters with "voices like angels" and provide smooth and soulful back up and harmony vocals.

As a duo Craig performs with Damon and performs his songs "unplugged".
The full 8 piece band is a feast for the ears and presents memorable songs played with consumate musicianship.
