Craig Moreau Talks About Struggles Portrayed in Music and Garth Brooks’ Influence

In the early 1990s, soon-to-be country legend and Grammy-award winning musician Garth Brooks had taken the music scene by storm with his now certified-diamond debut album, Garth Brooks. As he was touring the United States with his breakout record, a baby boy was born in Methuen, Massachusetts. “It’s funny, my mother jokes about me coming out of the womb singing,” Craig Moreau reflects. Moreau says that Garth Brooks was the first musician that he looked up to and even imitated. “I was a total Garth Brooks wannabe,” says Moreau. All these years later, Moreau has two albums of his own, and he is currently in the process of recording his third. However, it has not always been an easy ride for the rising country artist.

Early Years

After his birth in Massachusetts, Craig Moreau’s family relocated to the southeastern New Hampshire city of Pelham. He would spend his teenage years here, graduating from high school with ease. The coming years would be the toughest for Moreau. “I grew up in a broken home, and it led me to search for the meaning of life in all the wrong ways,” recalls Moreau. He continued, “I turned to drugs and alcohol for my solution to everything and eventually wound up in the revolving door of jails, institutions, and prison.” Fighting drug and alcohol addictions found Moreau at the lowest point of his life, constantly fighting the penal system. These struggles, however, soon reconnected Moreau’s broken love for music that he had forgotten. 

Musical Path

“Music has always been in my blood,” says Moreau. “I come from a big family with a lot of different personalities. The one thing that tied us all together was music.” Growing up on artists like George Jones, Bon Jovi, and the renowned Brooks has allowed Moreau to explore a diverse melting pot of influence to pull from when creating his own music. In 2018, Moreau released his first EP, “Sounds like Thunder”, which explores his personal experiences during his 10-year battle and eventual victory with drugs and alcohol. Honesty and pain are built into Moreau’s songwriting on the album, and each track shows the passion he holds for his music. This year, the New Hampshire artist released Under the Covers, an album in which Moreau reworks tracks that inspired him to make music, including Bryan Adams’ Summer of ’69 and Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car.

Future For Craig Moreau

Even with one project already recorded and released in 2020, Craig Moreau is not taking any time to slow down. Working entirely as an independent artist, Moreau is deep into writing and recording his third solo album that has yet to receive a release date. On top of his music, Moreau is also the founder of a clothing brand, CM Apparel, and more. Additionally, he hosts a podcast with his wife entitled, No Turning Back 365. Moreau is also a loving husband and father.

With a big year ahead, Moreau is attempting to simply spread love and positivity through everything that he works on. “I just want people to feel connected and inspired.”
