Singer/songwriter and guitarist Craig Caffall has been involved with music literally since the age of 9 when he began as a drummer in Mexico for a school band. Almost 45 years later he continues to dazzle audiences with his showmanship and vocal talent unsurpassed by many music and bands.
Born in the Bay Area and growing up in the United States and Mexico, this bi-cultured musician wows them in both English and Spanish. Caffall’s career has paired him up with some notable artists including Bo Diddley, John Mayall, Martha Davis and the Motels, David Clayton Thomas, Cyril & Charles Neville (Neville Bros.), Lee Oskar, Dan Hicks, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Wier, and Steve Earle, just to name a few.
Caffall has been residing for the last 18 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and most recently has been playing guitar with legendary singer Maria Muldaur for the past fourteen years, touring throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Japan.
Caffall has also been playing and touring with Shana Morrison (daughter of Van Morrison) for the past four years, here in the Bay Area and venues up and down the west coast. Caffall signed with Marin’s own GRA label (gragroup.com) and released his second CD entitled “Hold Me Up” which was taken from the Big Train sessions.
In 2012 Caffall released 3 albums. In January Caffall released the CD, CCB “That’s When You Got It Made”. He produced an album for folk singer Buffy Ford Stewart (wife of songwriter John Stewart from the Kingston Trio). And with Maria Muldaur on her “Christmas At The Oasis” release where he plays on the title track.
More recently CCB released “Got It Covered” from the bands cover set list. “Songs that everybody knows but CCB makes them their own” says Caffall proudly. CCB just released a new CD of new songs penned by Caffall entitled “Turns To The Blues”, his fourth album in the past six years.
CCB has been playing venues around the Bay Area, up and down the coast and around the country and Mexico for the past 16 years.
