Reviews

"Alan Craig is a Tampa Bay musician, songwriter, and producer who favors, on "A Day Late," his third release, perky pop, uptempo blues, kicky rock and roll, and whatever crosses his mind when he ducks into the studio..." Check out the complete FAME review for A Day Late.

-Mark S. Tucker, Music Critic, has written for numerous national indie and newsrack magazines and websites over the past 20 years: Sound Choice, i/e, Progression, Expose, On Reflection, Camera Obscura, OPtion, Perfect Sound Forever, and others.

"Stellar musicianship and a grasp of a variety of rock styles make the Alan Craig Project's " ... A Day Late" a solid and enjoyable effort. With guests including Damon Fowler, Gumbi Ortiz and The Band's Garth Hudson, Craig's definitely got connections as well."

-Curtis Ross, Independent Music Critic and former Pop Music Critic for the Tampa Tribune

"What happens when you take a roomful of the region’s finest veteran musicians, invite some national touring masters, give them some excellent new original material and -- stand back! “A Day Late” is nothing short of extraordinary."

-Maggie Council, Musician

This is the third project in the ACP series, and in my opinion, the most exciting one to date. It features a selection of tunes that run the gamut of musical styles. I was very fortunate to have some amazing musicians (including a national treasure) participate on this project, in addition to the awesome players that appeared on the previous endeavors.

I am extremely grateful to Ross, David, Charlie and Kyle for their song writing contributions. I am also indebted to George for his superb audio engineering skills, and to Michael for his mastering prowess. All the latest technology and gadgetry were brought to bear on this album, so it is truly a state-of-the-art production.

As Always, I thank my family for their love and support: Vanessa, Melissa, Patrick, Jenna and Frank.
