About Craig Hughes

Musician and that.

Soon …


Important announcement

After a couple of years on the heavyish guitar strings, I’m almost certainly going to switch back to lightish ones. This is, of course, for purely artistic/musicianly reasons and not just because I’ve found a bagful of new packs of the lightish strings I used to use and am too skint to stock up on my current regulars.

Conversely, I expect to soon be going up a tog or two, duvet-wise. Swings and roundabouts.


Soon …

Stuff’s happening. Changes. An album. That sort of thing.


All manner of this and that.

Rehearsals with The Crow Bone Chorus have been going very well indeed, with some covers added to the mix. They’re sounding good and fit well with the set. There’s already enough material there to play as long a set as is needed with a varied set list from gig-to-gig. We’ve also started work on a demo which will likely be a YouTube/Soundcloud only kind of a thing.

While there’ll be a self-promoted gig or two announced very soon, we’re also looking for a booker to help us out (particularly with gigs further afield). Although I intend to concentrate my efforts on full band gigs, The Craig Hughes Two will soon be back up to speed for more stripped-back live work. A couple more rehearsals and we should be there.

I’m also having thoughts on a maybe-kinda acoustic-ish project, a solo thing. More on that when I’ve clued myself in!


Guitarsenal …

That’s my guitars all ready (ish) for future Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus endeavours. All we need now are the fucking gigs to play them at.


New video, new song #3.

Here’s the last of the rough cuts from the Craig Hughes & The Crow Bone Chorus showcase, Made a Thing. Although I’ve been saying these would all be new songs, this one has actually been in the solo and duo live sets for a couple of years. New to most, though.
