To turn a phrase from his song “Home Out on the Shore,” Craig Veltri is a “country/urban hybrid”
In August 2015, Veltri released his first full-length album, A Million Miles to Go. Mostly autobiographical, the entirely acoustic album is a surprisingly eclectic mix in musical styles while still maintaining a pointed and direct lyrical approach.
In August 2020, Veltri released his first EP, Vagabond. Produced by former Charlie Daniels Band drummer, Jack Gavin, this EP is a culmination of Veltri “cutting his teeth” in Nashville for the previous 5 years.
Veltri has released 6 singles since Vagabond continuing to flex and stretch his creative range. Whether it be “Shine On”, a Beatles inspired song penned by Veltri and produced by fellow Pittsburgh native Bryan Cole, or his most recent single “Wandering Eye”, a song with a Hank Williams inspired motif co-written by Abby Hankins and produced by PT Houston of Off The Row Studios, Craig Veltri intends to never shy away from any genre of music and refuses to be pigeonholed.
In November 2022, he released a video for the single “Makin’ Noise on Music Row” filmed entirely on location in Nashville, TN with the help of Eli Adelman and Ten Bears Productions.
His latest record, a full length, acoustic, concept record entitled “Letters to the Defendant” details the downfall of his marriage due to alcoholism, his personal housecleaning and redemption.
