Craymo Exclusive Interview


Where are you from and could you tell us a little bit of your upbringing? 

I grew up in Ogdensburg, a small city on the St. Lawrence River on the Canadian border in upstate New York. I was the oldest of five siblings. I think I was singing when I came out of the womb! I fell in love with music at a very young age. My earliest childhood memory, actually, is of me at 3 or 4 years old singing "I wanna Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles into my mother's hairbrush in the mirror while dancing on my parent's bed!  I am obsessed with music!  I worked as a nightclub and radio DJ for over 30 years just so I could be close to music. It's the greatest escape to put on headphones

and just live in the moment and get lost in a song. Music has been my confidant, my savior, my escape and my best friend at times.  It's always there when I need it the most and it doesn't judge.

What genre of music do you make and when did you first decide to be a musician?

I  make alternative pop music in all its forms, rock, electronic, etc. I first decided to be an entertainer while watching the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds on TV.  Then when I saw David Cassidy on the Partridge Family, I knew I wanted that life! 

Who are some of the notable artists and people that influenced your career thus far? 

Elton John, The Beatles, Madonna, Duran Duran, Elvis Presley, David Bowie

Could you tell us about your latest project? 

My latest release is an EDM/Dance single called "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone" It's already won Best Dance Song in the 2022 Clouzine International Electronic Music Awards!

What should we expect from you in the near future?

I am working on a funky remake of Rick James "Give It To Me Baby!"

Could you give us some advice that you can offer to someone who is just getting started in making music? 

Believe in yourself. You have to believe it before anyone else can. You have to be dedicated, you have to learn and practice, practice, practice! You also need to have patience. You will hear a lot of no’s before you hear a yes. Surround yourself with people who also believe in you. There are very few “overnight sensations” sometimes it takes many years. Network and make a lot of friends in the business. Believe!

Are there any important achievements you have gained since beginning to do music? 

I performed as a male vocalist on Star Search 89 with Ed McMahon. My band opened for Smashmouth. I have had many songs licensed in TV shows and feature films and I am continuing those pursuits. Most recently I have been receiving Best Song and Best Music Video awards in several international song competitions!

Besides music, what are some of the things that you are into? 

Tennis, acting, bowling, riding my bike!

Are you currently on tour or planning to be?

I am not on tour but would love to be! Hopefully soon.

Any last remarks?

Be kind and enjoy your beautiful existence

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
