CRAIG WOODWARD & THE LONELY DOG’S (OFFICIAL BIO)

Craig Woodward is a Sydney based Singer-Songwriter fusing contemporary songs with memorable melody, harmony and a whole lotta fun…

Craig has always viewed his music to have cross over sensibilities from his loved styles of Pop, Rock, Modern Country & even funk. He has over the years developed a uniquely Australian style of Aussie Country Rock and has built a strong reputation as an engaging singer, songwriter and performer from his constant hard-working approach to performing live, writing & recording.

Craig has supported Australian touring acts with his ever-evolving live show sharing the stage with the likes of Ian Moss, Sarah McLeod, Mental as Anything, 1927’ & Adam Harvey to name a few.

‘Bondi Smile’ from his debut album received local and international airplay and acclaim!

‘Get Your Boots On’ launched across Australian Country Radio nationally with Hi-Rotation on the KIX Country Radio Network!

Craig’s latest single ‘Silver Lining Dream’ was fast tracked from his 2020’ recording process for his forthcoming album. Craig wrote this song & produced it as an honest reflection from the overwhelming & conscious consuming global crisis that is the COVID-19 Epidemic. From an artist’s perspective he writes about his observations, thoughts, feelings and prayers for a broken world in need of a global shift and reset.
