Craig Ewan is a self taught Singer/Songwriter from the very musical country town of Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada. (40 mins NE of Toronto, Ontario) While his friends and other local musicians honed their craft in the country music scene, Craig was drawn towards the big city lights and glamour of nearby Toronto and it’s ever thriving Rock’n Roll scene. Being a self proclaimed ‘Country Boy’ by his roots, musically one may not see this transparency. After purchasing his first electric guitar in an auction at age 16 (a Jolly Rancher Red acrylic BC Rich Bich) he would go on to emulate the writing and playing styles of Mark Tremonti (Creed, Alter Bridge), Richard Patrick (NiN, Filter), Aaron Lewis (Staind), Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) and Jacoby Shaddix/Jerry Horton (of Papa Roach). To this day these musicians and their rock bands have an ever evolving influence on his current writing and musical taste. After learning the basics of guitar and minor theory his main interest evolved into singing. Having a naturally gifted baritone singing style it was easy to see why he chose the path he did. Many would utilize this style for ‘Southern Country’ but Craig wanted to bend the mold and pursue his love of Rock’n Roll. Craig has co-written and sang for copious amounts of independent Rock’n Roll bands around the city of Toronto, Ontario for years but has recently decided to take time to pursue his own sound and style without any boundaries.
Dead Defined is a solo project instrumentally written and sang by Craig Ewan. It is produced and engineered by Mike Dmitrovic of Voodoo Records Canada. Dead Defined is a melting pot of the many musical influences that have guided Craig to hone his own style in this ever evolving music industry.
