Himy paints with upvibe pop sensibilities on a canvas of Christian faith and life.
"It’s not as easy for me to write songs when I'm happy," Craig muses. "Why is that? I'm kind've forcing myself to write songs from a heart filled with joy - not pain - trying to write songs with the cup half full you know? I want to feel good making this music - I want people to smile when they listen to it. I also wanted to give my three daughters some fun music they could dance to, without having to worry about dodgy lyrics or innuendo. So I guess in that sense I'm making music for my kids, and trying to teach them about Christian faith at the same time - it’s a great motivator for me.”
Artists and producers that have shaped Craig’s musical sensibilities from the earliest days would include Petra (John and Dino Elefante), Whiteheart, Tommy Emmanuel, Neil Finn, Bon Jovi, John Mayer, DC Talk, Toby Mac, Directions in Groove, Deadmau5, Glen Ballard, Alan Silvestri, Adam Again, Gungor, Brooke Fraser, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Justin Timberlake, James Taylor and Jamiroquai.
