Indio''s heritage comes from Native American Indian. His grandmother was a full-blooded Passamaquati Indian. He carries his heritage sacredly. Writing poetry as a child he imagined putting poetry into a form that would make it more interesting. Reading classic Greek literature and drama he learned that the poet was the first player to take the stage, and then came the actor. So, acting became his passion giving his poetry a different life of its own. He started to pursue acting as a professional career. His T.V./movie credits include Walker Texas Ranger, Star Trek, Fast Lane, The Young And The Restless, Pacific Blue, Resurrection Blvd., Murphy Brown, Thunderdome and Corky Romano. He also performed on the FX Channel as a featured poet on the X show.
Craig''s roots lie in serious classical training with one of his earliest performances of Samuel Barbers Piano Sonata earning him the Honor Award from the Detroit Musicians League. He also holds a Bachelors Degree in Music Composition from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. After many years of performing classical and mainstream venues Craig left Detroit and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. In his first few years in L.A. Craig kept busy freelancing various jobs including some film scoring and transcribing music for such artists as Wendy Carlos and Eddie Jobson. Eventually he landed a job as chief studio engineer at 2KSounds who were affiliated with E.M.I. and Virgin Records. Here he worked with an array of artists from Folk to Rap including Glen Campbell, Randy Bachman and Michael Narada Walden. He left 2KSounds and started his own record label, Random Arch Music, where he keeps busy producing his own as well as other artists CD''s.
