about

Born and raised in Hawai'i Craig always wanted more from his music. Playing at venues and ukulele festivals around the world, Craig pushed himself as a songwriter and ukulele instrumentalist creating a unique take on his favorite styles. Craig has spent the last year playing with local (Eugene) talents including Joey Hepner, Sean Ponder and Theo Halpert creating a blend of island and pop that has an explosive energy that must be seen live. This album is a collection of songs that Craig has written over the past few years and reveals a bit of his past adventures and a hint of what is to come musically in the future.
A huge thanks to our families, friends and fans for all of your support! A special thank you to the featured guest musicians for filling this project with your talent and love!

Track Name: I Can't Help
I can see you and me, laughing hysterically
it's how we were meant to be
Holding hands, making plans, a glass of wine and a dance
how could we ever leave it to chance?
i can see you and me, making out by the tree
when you told me you needed me
soaring by, living high, our love can't deny
though i never asked you why

but now you're gone without a doubt
i'm still finding pieces of my broken heart
but i know, this to be true
i can't help, falling in love with you
Track Name: All I See
all i see, is you wavering slowly away
all i hear, is you whispering please, wait for me
i don't doubt that i'll be strong
like i was when you first fell for me
but i pray it won't be long
till i feel you again in my arms

for you i'll always, try to understand
for you i know i'll be a better man
all i want, is to be right there
and all i ask of you, is that you show me you love me too

all i feel, is hope only tomorrow can bring
all i say, i want to live out this dream with you
all i offer you is me, with all the love and respect you deserve
all i say, i want to live out this dream with you

for you i'll always, try to understand
for you i know i'll be a better man
all i want, is to be right there
and all i ask of you, is that you show me you love me too

all i see, all i dream, is you
Track Name: Elephants
i wish i had met you
any other way
i wish i could tell you
why i couldn't stay

but since that day i let you go
i've been trying to fill this hole, in my soul

the days that we shared
vanished so fast
like colors of fall
we hoped it would last

but since that day i let you go
i've been trying to fill this hole, in my soul

where did you go
i need to slow this path
could it be time, could you be mine
at last

and i still can't deny
how much i'd give to try
one more time
Track Name: Untitled 47
can you hear my voice? will it reach you tonight?
can you feel it's warmth? try as i might

but i know how hard it is
but i'll still try
every where i look, i see your smile
every thought of you makes my heart wild
though you're far away, this i say
for you i won't give up, i won't give up

can you feel my touch? i'm missing you tonight
can you hear my heart? while it beats for you tonight

but i know how hard it is
but i'll still try
every where i look, i see your smile
every thought of you makes my heart wild
though you're far away, this i say
for you i won't give up, i won't give up
Track Name: Hard Fall (Live - Acoustic)
stay away before i fall
between your arms
with nothing else to complicate
there should be more to contemplate
but i, give in to your demands
cross the swaying bridge, snatch the gold and flip the switch

and i, want to smile
and i, do with you

keep away before i trip
head over heals
spinning round and round
i don't know if i'll touch the ground again

and i, want to smile
and i, do with you
Track Name: Night to Remember
there's something in your eyes that takes me by surprise every time you stare
not caring if i see you make my knees go weak, i give in
i pretend to know the things that you're thinking
but you keep me guessing, till the end

we could spend the whole evening just being friends
but is that what you really want?
is that what you really want...

we can take it slow
or we or we could make it a night to remember

it seems you're hesitating waiting patiently, biding your time
it's fine to think we share that link it'd be okay if we cross that line
but the way you bite your lips makes it hard
to breathe

we can take it slow
or we or we could make it a night to remember
Track Name: Last Song (solo)
why do i still dream of you?
what can i do, now that you're gone
heart please be still, i'm begging you
please don't be heard, i'm begging you now

and how can i see it through
when all i think of is you
only of you

what of those things, we promised
under that tree, what of it now
can i still be, one you need
can i still be, all you see now

and how can i see it through
when all i think of is you
only of you

now you're gone, can't be found, no more tagging along
all of your love, all of your tears, i leave with this song
tonight
Track Name: 3AM
night goes to sleep
and the moon masquerades the wall
i've played the sheep
now i want it all

and i know, how you feel
but is it real enough for this to work?
and i know, that i'll lose
if this game, keeps going on

we're both on the beam
trying so hard, not to fall
but every little twist
makes us risk it all

and i know, how you feel
but is it real enough for this to work?
and i know, that i'll lose
if this game, keeps going on
