His latest album, ‘Chasing The Moon To Reno,’ released on his own CWR label, has been on the N1M charts ever since its release last December, with more than 2 months holding at #1. The first 12 songs on the album are a reflection of the life that Craig Caffall has lived. They talk about love gained and love lost, life, the world around us, and everything in between. The title track, ‘Chasing The Moon To Reno’, shows that we discover ourselves as we pursue our dreams. ‘Long Road Back’ speaks of the pandemic and how we must be patient as we return to some form of normalcy. ‘Is This A Mistake’, about homelessness from the point of a homeless individual. ‘Lockdown’ is in trying to start up a relationship at the beginning of the pandemic and getting “cut off”. ‘Eye For An Eye’ refers to global warming and issues associated with it. ‘Hang Tough’ is about believing in yourself while others try and knock you down. And ‘Wiped Your Kiss Away’ is heartbreak amplified. The other songs not mentioned here the listener will understand.
