Sydney’s King of Bass- Craig Calhoun

BORN in Colorado USA, the son of a singer and an army officer, the family was posted to Germany in 1970. It was then that the dreams started. “I was on stage, playing. When I woke up, I wanted to feel what I felt in the dream,” says Craig Calhoun. It was this that inspired Craig to teach himself guitar. It wasn’t till the family returned to California that he discovered his true calling. “I saw someone slap and then said… yeah that’s what I wanna do.” Craig commenced a five to six hours a day bass habit.

Sydney’s new live bands are currently enjoying the production talents and experience of the boy dreamer who’s destiny continues to unravel in the town he now calls home.

Why? Because “my Reunion Blues Guitar case saved my Axe on 6 International flights. Bummer my new suitcase didn’t do as well!” -Craig Calhoun.
