My motto: carpe diem – seize the day!

Hi. My name is Craig Howell and I'm from Birmingham. I'm an amateur musician, and I'm passionate about music. I sing, play the guitar and write my own songs, and my hobby is a welcome distraction from the daily grind.


I started making music at the age of sixteen, and I've been at it ever since. My friends and I organise jam sessions in my basement as often as we can, and we've even recorded a few tracks. These days I'm pretty confident in my skills, and occasionally I perform live gigs at local venues and open-mike nights.

I have a few other hobbies, too. I like to go to the cinema, and I enjoy a good book from time to time (especially when it's about music!). I spend a lot of time with my friends and family, and one of our favourite activities is to see live concerts by our favourite bands and artists.
