Collaborating with some of Australia’s finest, eclectic and revered musicians over the last few years who you can see on the Collaborations page, it is near impossible to pigeonhole Delsinki Records. Accompanying him on the 2015 ‘A Soldier’s Wife EP’ is Australian music legend Steve Pigram (The Pigram Brothers), songstress Coby Grant, and members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Craig has toured previously with the ACO and featured as a vocalist singing along side Brian Ritchie from the Violent Femmes and Jim Moginie from Midnight Oil for a tour of the U.S (2016) in the ACO’s spectacular “The Reef”.
