Craig Moritz is a rarity these days. He is a country boy at heart, a what you see is what you get kind of a guy who happens to write and sing some pretty good country music. Moritz is Alberta through and through. After growing up and working jobs from retail to oilfield, he knew he had yet to find his true path. Craig got hooked on the idea of becoming a country music artist after meeting Toby Keith and having a down to earth, "real" conversation about the music industry with him. Since then Craig has been inspired and motivated, working on a steady path towards his career as a country music artist and songwriter. The adventurous and unpredictable journey, some would say began with Craig being selected for a prestigious new artist showcase by the Canadian Country Music Association in 2004. Others would say its been seven years of hard work hitting the road performing shows, writing, recording, rehearsing, interviews, networking and whole lot of personal and financial sacrifice to get to where he is today and is now ready for the new beginning of taking his career to a completely different level. Following the CCMA showcase of 2004, Craig finished recording his first album in early 2005, "The Way I Feel" produced by noted west coast producer Tom McKillip (One More Girl, Aaron Pritchett) distributed by Royalty Records. After cutting his teeth and gaining invaluable experience owning the road on the honky tonk circuit from the hard scrabble town of Fort McMurray in Canada's tough and vast northern oil sands, to racking up the miles in every direction through western Canada and beyond, Craig has become a bona fide regional star. He has spent a lot of time reflecting on his life personal life experiences and also everything that has and is constantly happening around him in order to keep true to his own self and his music and where he wants to go with it. Whether its heartache, family, friends, good times, bad times, funny stories or awkward situations, he writes about it and that in turn seems to have struck a cool new exciting chord with his fans and industry professionals. Craig is a mainstay at major country events like the Calgary Stampede where his no nonsense, let's get down to business and have a good time vibe has earned him a legion of die hard fans. Craig is a staunch animal advocate, and works with Cats and Dogs International (CANDi) and other humane organizations in Canada and the U.S.
