Mr Bradbury was welcomed at crash and he really enjoyed it, performing for the 1st time here. The appeal for him to play at Crash is to support local festivals. “There’s not enough going on in mid Wales and always a shortage of good festivals that supports local bands”.
The loop machines come 2nd to playing acoustic guitar and singing, he started using loop effects after being inspired by the likes of Beardy Man and Dub Fx.
Craig does not consider himself a beat boxer he’s a singer and guitarist first and foremost.
This technology has only been around for the last few years, he enjoys using equipment for other purposes that it’s originally designed for.
He started using delay pedals and putting them on infinite loop, and just let it record then take a tempo, from that build a track using the echo effect which is completely uncontrollable and keeps it purely live.
He only started to learn to Beat box about 18 months ago and playing guitar since about 7 years old. He loves to put his hand to anything new or old that makes a individual sound.
Craig hasn’t had a musically oriented upbringing but has his dad to thank as he pushed him in the right direction Craig’s favourite track to perform to the masses is “Everything but the girl, Missing” his personal favourite.
He writes original material but enjoys doing covers, collaborating and mixing up other peoples music, mainly because its easier to translate with the pad and other equipment he uses.
In about 2 years he would love to get himself a truck, travel around Europe and Australia so he can take his looping/Pa equipment have a rolling bag & battery system so he could set up on the street and simply busk, his girlfriend is also a vocalist and they would collaborate together during his world tour
