Sweetness! I really like the tempo and relaxed feel that says listen up here is how to play music! Good song -Mike
This song... and you... are the real deal! :) =Bravo=
CrOckMisTer long time no see! It's great to listen to more of your music again. You have such an incredible sound.
Sounds like pro to me... great songs and performances.. love the voice...
Some Grateful Dawg in there! Love it!
great music, great lyrics. Well done!
I am a sucker for Shuffles. This is even a Shuffle Espaniole. Very good lyrics, and as usual the vocals stand out. Good quality track.
Said it before and will say it again. Cheers to and your "not so ordinary" talent my friend.
Really warming me up dude having heard the contest version. Really great lyric esp!! Rated too
Love the 'spanish' finger work in the intro. An excellent song Craig great lyrics and vocals superb.A very easy listen and I love the chorus.
Hard to compare against other versions possibly created you've spoken of, but this sounds pretty darn good to me, guitar sounds lovely, I kinda like the live sound you have going here, lyrics are top, and vocals delivered superbly. Very nice!
Great track. Love the lyrics and vocal delivery. Kept hoping some kind of percussion would come in though. Maid me wish to hear the rock or ska version you talked about. Still well done.
great stuff here
Nice tone Craig and superb lyrics, deserving of one of my hard to get nominations and an easy rate.
Perfect song for a lovely warm summers day.Great lyrics in this song Craig, and nice strumming.I like the guitar tone in the track..Rated.
Hey, Craig. I like the fast strumming in the beginning. I have to admit, when the song comes in, it's a bit weaker than I've heard from your norm. We'll see where it goes. I always seem to listen to the messages of your songs more than the production anyways. You have some good songs!
You have a brilliant way of bringing those lyrics into the song. The melody lings more in the harmony. Lots of harmony and wisdom in this. That's the type of atmosphere and feel I get from this. I can definitely relate to this song. With me being confined to a motorized wheelchair, as unnatural as it is for me, it's actually normal to me. And all the people I have to rely on to help me do simple day to day things, I thank every day for their help. I give my thanks everyday of my life. The part you sing about not giving up relates to me, too. I'll scowl at any Dr. that tells me I can't do something when I know I can. I'm not supposed to be alive. But here, I remain.
Production wise, it seemed to sound a bit far away in the mix. Not sure if you were going for the live sound (as you say you're working on your live songs) so if that's the case, forget about it. Livewise, I'd say it sounds great. The mix is strong. Your voice and the other instruments don't clash at all so no probs there. It's mixed very professionally. I'm glad you posted up a new song just in time for when I came back from my hiding. lol Well congrats on the new song and I hope to hear some more great wisdom tunes from ya, man. Haven't admitted it, but you're kind of an acoustic inspiration to me. I think about making some kind of acoustic techno when I hear your music. Have a great day, man.
Superb vocal..and a song that you can really sing along too.....excellent and rated.
Hey Craig. I am at peace tonight now that I have listened to a new CROCKMISTER song. I kid you not. A little red vino is in order....screw those lost six seconds
Left comments on comp page. Really like this has a waits/cave groove that is so appealing.Nice one
It's all about Music.

The new CRoCkmIstEr cd "swimming in air" is in final mix, due out in ???2004.
It has to be said that I do have a welcome mat out for Crockmister whenever there is something new on offer. Mainly because Craig Sofaly (aka The Mister man) is the kind of musician and songwriter who is thoroughly professional in everything that he does, whatever the genre. One of my video highlights of late has been the video he made testing out his new guitar sequencer on a new trac
In October 2004 I reviewed a track called Walking Between Two Worlds from a new musician to me at MP3 Unsigned. It was an absolutely knockout track in every respect, but especially vocally (I compared Craig's voice to both Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) and Van Morrison and nothing I have heard since has deviated one iota from that first knockout punch. This is one artist that is absolutely guara
Up for a review is CrOckMisTer’s new track; Just My Morning.
This is my first review so if I make a mistake, I apologize in advance. I’m
sitting in my motorized power chair in front of my computer speakers. I just
downloaded the song and I’m about to press play. So here we go.
We start off with a nice strumming guitar melody. Very laid
back sounding and soothing. Makes me feel
I love drunken jam sessions... great musicians often complain about their technique being off when half pissed but there is a certain magic that comes through from the looseness. This track demonstrates some great accoustic guita playing. I was ver impressed from the word go, lovely easy vibe to it. The piece moves along at a nice pace, without being overly in your face. It's only after a bout a m
Next up is a from Craig (CrOckMisTer) called 'Summers Child' and we are into a folky/funky kind of laid back summer groove :) Now this track caused me many problems in this review because although I am trying to be constructive and actually really like the meat of the track, the melody, the singing, the playing etc, there are other aspects of it that really annoyed me, but how much of my own perso
Lullaby In Blue
I'm no expert at the reviewing system and as a matter of fact this is the first review I have ever done. I hope to do alright by Craig and Deggsy with this review as I really want to express my feelings about this song in the most proper way. I have choosen to review "Lullaby In Blue" for the pure fact that this song draws me back to listen time and time again. Craig had once take
Crockmister has signed up for my reviews, and has been patient as it took me awhile to get to them.
Firstly, showtunes, happen to be one of my least favorite styles of music. in general i can appreciate showtunes, but cant stand listening to them, peaking at musicals, which to me are extremely hard to sit through. Part of this is becasue my girlfriend is a ballet dancer and im dragge
This review is kind of thanks for reviewing my track and also a late review. A wile back I put some reviews up & Craig was one of them that didn’t get reviewed, not sure what happened think maybe it was a system crash or I could have just had something on where I missed the reviews. Anyways Craig has just asked another member if he could review this track and I noticed that the list was closed
very funky, as u said it would be. also great lyrics "i aint giving up on loving, im giving up on love" why did i think of that? good one.
Hello to one and all. This outing I’ll be pontificating about a tune by CrOckMisTer (with “ music and funkadelics by Deggsy”) entitled “Giving Up On Love”. In doing so, we will be delving into some funky soul.
Crockmister AKA Craig Sofaly is an MP3 Unsigned artist and one half of Deggsy & Crockmister, IMO possibly the best duo around right now. Certainly the slickest, anyway. They came real close to getting artist of the year 2005 from me and did feature highly in my year end review. Not bad considering the amount of tracks that went to form this high opinion. Artists that re
What a breath of fresh air. It has a definative style that reminds me of Tom Waits, but probably better in its delivery.The song itself is faultless, and this would be a product ,I would buy.
They say (who say?) that good things come in threes and that maxim certainly holds true for the three collaborations I have reviewed so far from this extremely versatile duo. Matter of fact, ALL of the tracks - Spinning Around (August 2005), Tired Of Being Poor (September 2005) and These Dreams Of Mine (October 2005) - have all got extremely high rating from me and 2 Recommendeds and a Must
Yep, yep, I know you are used to seeing Deggsy/Crockmister as the billing for this duo - especially after a cracking run of two blistering first tracks (Spinning Around - August 2005 and Tired Of Being Poor - September 2005). I'm just trying to keep you on your toes :D I thought Spinning Around was (and I quote) 'in-con-ferkin-parable' and that Tired Of Being Poor was 'impeccable'. As
Summer’s Child by CrOckMisTer
CrOckMisTer (aka Craig Sofaly) is one of those MP3Unsigned artists who has been around d the site for quite a while and has established a faithful and enthusiastic following for his music (both on his own and with his collaborations with Deggsy). So much so that at the time of writing his artist page had received just less than 19,500 visits which, given that
I first came across this artist at MP3 Unsigned last October when I
reviewed his Walking Between Two Worlds track. It still sits on
my hard drive and still gets the occasional workout which says a lot
about what I thought of the track. It's a very professional slice
of music, with a vocal style that deserves wider exposure.
Crockmister's style is a kinda/sorta cross betwee
Now here is an interesting piece of music that has crossed my path. I have always enjoyed crockmister’s music in the past, and when he asked me for a review I knew it would be good stuff. I was not disappointed. The song is "Jacob's Ladder"(2).
I guess I am sucker for the mid to low tempo trancy kind of folk. This is a beautuful song and I don't really see a whole lot that has to be done production wise if that is what you meant? Mesmerizing, comfortable, easy, nice.
The emotion of the Vocal is what I like the best about this song.
Another new geezer to me (and probably you too). This is a track I picked up over at MP3 Unsigned which is a nice place to hang out of a nighttime. That's the only time I'm allowed out anyway. Aaah, such are the joys of fatherhood... If I didn't already know about Crockmisters pedigree, this track would have knocked me on my ass. As it is, knowing something about the artist, it STILL knocked
This one’s beautiful, but it took a few listens to really strike home just how good it is. The intro to this song is unusually long, the vocal in fact doesn’t come in until about 2’30, but boy you don’t notice it at all. Over that two and a half minutes, you hear a wonderful dreamy and slightly melancholy soundscape unfold, with beautiful interplay between three different guitar parts over the t
