Craig Singleton began his professional career in high school as a singer and sax player performing in churches and with his Soul Music Band, 'THE RAPPERS'! He played premier night clubs and hotels including the Castaways and Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, often opening for renowned artist including the Four Tops and James Brown during their comeback tours. He had fallen in love with music and never looked back! He continued his music education at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music. During University he performed with several Club Bands and was a featured vocalist performing Musicals and Classical Concert Performances throughout the State. He also conducted Church Choirs, founded his first Entertainment Production Company, worked as a Talent Agent and sang five seasons with the Greater Miami Opera Company along side opera stars including Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo.
After graduation Craig continued to perform while he taught High School music a few years. But his future was on the Stage, so he left Classroom Teaching and made NYC his new home. There, he performed in Summer Stock, Regional and Off-Broadway Productions, and toured extensively nationwide as a Singer, Actor, Playwrite, Director and Producer.
While working in Los Angeles Craig founded his National Touring Theatre Company, and his years in Nashville brought Big City Entertainment to life. Today, he continues to write, compose and record, but for Craig, nothing is more fulfilling than the action and immediacy of a Live Stage Performance!

I only require electricity. No other additional items are reqired. I am fully self contained.
My gear is state of the art, and it does matter. Quality of gear, muical instruments, microphones, cables etc., does effect your sound on stage and the impact it has on the audience. I use the state of the art Tyros 4 keyboard by Yamaha as my primary sound source and I perform live. No mp3 tracks sounding like an AM radio at my show. No radio shack players or stollen music either. Only legal high quality pofessionaly composed midi files perfected for my show! No kidding, the quality is unserpassed. If you don't believe me, listen to my demos. That's my 'One Man Show' you're listening to. Just me and my keyboard in most cases! It's amazing the sound I can get today with this gear,and I love it.
My set list is created on stage by me and is determined live as the I read the audience and take request. That way it's always fresh and appropriate for the moment. I have thousands of songs to choose from!
