Album Notes
This is the second album that Mike and Craig have teamed up to do together. Mike Elkins hand crafts pine flutes and other items like dream catchers, ladies and men's jewelry as well as knives with handles carved from bone. He travels widely across the state of Oklahoma setting up his display at shopping malls, festivals, military bases, and special events.

Craig is the worship leader at Heritage Baptist Church in Tuttle, Oklahoma. He also operates a Christian recording studio in in his home in Chickasha, Oklahoma. He and his wife Sue travel in their music ministry. Craig has a degree in Music and Bible. He majored in voice in college, but is also accomplished on guitar and piano. He has recently started playing the mandolin.

Craig and Mike met several years ago when Mike called on him to help him record his first CD project. This started a great friendship, and when Mike began recording his next CD project he told Craig, "Feel free to add anything to my flute parts if you feel lead to, and if you have time to do it." Craig started experimenting with Mike's flute songs, and soon realized that even though Mike didn't record with a 'click track', when he laid down his flute parts, they were in perfect time with themselves. Once Craig figured out what the beats per measure was, He could add drum tracks and then piano, strings, and other sounds from the keyboards in his studio which accompanied and supported Mike's beautiful flute performances. The reaction of Mike's customers when they heard our music was tremendous. Mike not only has a hard time keeping up with the demand for his flutes, he is constantly calling Craig to make more CD's of their projects.

It was going to take some real effort to create a project that surpassed CD number two, "Looking Toward the Sunset", but over the last year things have come together and this new CD "Riding on the Wind" is an album that Mike and I are both really excited about. In fact, we are so encouraged with this one, we have already begun planning our next CD together.

We hope you enjoy this CD and encourage you to find and listen to more of Craig's solo projects on CD baby. Through it all, may this music give us all a little peace in this world which to say the least is not peaceful enough.
