“I wrote Still for Lerato. There were hardly any new phrases in the song. In one way or another, Lerato had heard those words straight from my mouth. We had so many ups and downs, we looked like an equalizer booth. She never tried to change me… nor did I try to change who she was. In a way… I was ready to love her in any form she took. Even now, where her flesh and bones are not within my physical reach.. I do love her still. I choose her still.
After her funeral, Craig drove back home with his brother PsyKick for about 5 hours… without a second breath, they setup and recorded for 7 hours straight through the night. The project was done but was only mastered in the morning, “There was alot of crying and a lot of drinking” Explains Craig
This song although very close to Craig’s heart, is not different from his other songs,
“I always write about my personal life. I am fully vulnerable through my music, I’ll keep releasing singles and EPs until I am ready for a full album… but I don’t know when that will be.”
Craig says he already has a scheduled release for next month’s single…
