Craig Franklin was born in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the hospital of the University of Virginia, founded by Thomas Jefferson (one of his heroes). When he was 17, Craig learned to play folk guitar and started writing songs. After graduating from Stanford University with a BS in Math, he worked on the Apollo moonshot for a couple of years and then spent five years on the staff at MIT. This led to his success as a Silicon Valley millionaire! Although Craig never stopped playing guitar and never stopped writing songs he has lived in Oklahoma, California, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and New Hampshire — but now he’s back in California. The consummate ‘Cowboy at Heart’ Craig still loves folk and country songs along with duets too and has written several, plus he’s arranged others from existing songs.
Craig’s breakout & breakup song, “I Don’t Love You Any Less ( But I Won’t See You Any More)” addresses an issue never before encountered in a country song while being on the edge of controversy – Craig’s reaction from listeners “I take my wedding vows seriously and I wish she did too”. The ladies think he’s quite a crooner too, with his deep, sexy vocals. Craig is single ladies and quite the Cowboy at Heart..
