Craig Michael Gurwich is on first glance just a Midwestern boy from Kalamazoo, Michigan, now residing in Los Angeles. However, he is also Summer At Shatter Creek. That is, he played every instrument on Summer at Shatter Creek. He also did all of the production and recording. He tried to play with other people, but it didn't quite work out. One listen to the record and you'll be glad. He's blessed with a voice that soars to the heavens and nearly shimmers into the astral plane. His superbly fresh compositional instincts put him firmly in the company of such pop innovators like Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips and Dave Fridmann of Mercury Rev.
