Craig King Bio:

Craig King was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and fell in love with music at a young age. As Craig puts it, "I grew up within an R&B/old school environment, but I listened to all types of music. When I was twelve, I bought a Frank Zappa album and couldn’t wait to get home to play it." While listening to the album his mother commented to his father, “I think that boy has lost his mind!” Living in the Hill District of Pittsburgh afforded Craig the opportunity to hear and see many well known local musicians, as well as nationaly known musicians, at the Crawford Grill, a Pittsburgh institution for live jazz and blues.
Craig began his playing career in grade school with the trumpet which he earned “All City” status. During this period he met and played with Dizzy Gillespie. This fueled his desire to learn more about music. While in high school he got his first guitar and started to develop his vocal and songwriting talents . Mr King has fronted or played in several bands over the years, playing in clubs and bars, or doing opening act features for national acts coming through Pittsburgh. Some of these included The S.O.S. Band, Con Funk Shun, Molly Hatchett, Bernard Allison, Carl Weathersby, Jimmy Vaughn and the fabulous Buddy Guy. His most memorable moments were playing with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic with his friend Billy “Bass” Nelson and backing up Martha Reeves and the Vandella’s.
Currently Craig plays with one of the top blues groups in Pittsburgh, The Mystic Knights and also has his own band. Craig is a part of the Bonedog Record Label family writing and collaborating with Mike Sweeney for his debut Bonedog release "Breakthrough". Although this CD features Craig's soulful vocals. watchout! cause he can put some stank on a guitar!!
