Craig Ibsen

Upon relocating to Charleston, SC from Seattle, WA in September 2015, I'm looking forward to finding a professional fun musical situation in South Carolina

CRAIG IBSEN - Lead Vocals, bass

Craig's powerful bass and smooth vocals have been an integral part of Seattle favorites:
Epicenter, Merrilee Rush, and many more.
Opening shows for Merle Haggard, Tower of Power, Emmylou Harris, The Neville Brothers, and Joe Nichols.
Most recently, Craig has played with No Rules and The Chris Ward Band.
Craig has showcased his ability to move between many different musical styles with ease. He is a deep pocket player who jumps dead center into a groove, and rides it all night.
