Atomic Man

A killer guitarist... the true musical brilliance of Welton shines through like a priceless diamond. He is a brilliant composer and masterful guitarist/Pianist/Keyboardist and was clearly a musical mastermind.... His mind-blowing fretwork and keyboard chops deliver more than enough playing and soul to go around"
Cyrus Rhodes, IndieMusicMedia


Hollywood Legend

"Really a fantastic work, highly recommended"
Carlos Ferreira, Progressiverockbr.com


"I really liked it a lot... Craig was very talented."
Guy Ferri, DeliciousAgony.com

"Along with Craig's obvious flair for the guitar, he also had similar abilities in the keyboard department as displayed in Prague. Other highlights from the album were cleverly written Knosus and The Wait... a pretty awesome album."
Bob Mulvey, Dutch Progressive Rock Radio

"Craig was a very gifted multi-instrumentalist; so varied and always masterful interplay between the solos of electric guitar, those of bass and synthesizer, and passages of piano are everywhere on the album. A true artist"
Vitaly, Progressor.net


After Craig's untimely passing in October (due to an aortic aneurism), and in his memory, we have put together a double CD of Craig's music - of both songs and instrumentals. It is now available and well illustrates how he was as comfortable, and incredible, on piano as he was a legend on guitar. This first collection of songs and instrumentals is all Craig - piano, guitar, drum machines, synth, organ, etc. While most of the music was remixed and fine-tuned from older 4-track analog cassette tapes it still contains a lot of bite, beauty, and intensity. Like the "exciting" musician he was, this music will grab you and amaze even his friends who had the pleasure of playing with him or seeing him perform live. Thanks for the music, Craig! You can hear, order, and download singles of all the great songs and tracks thru the CDbaby player below or purchase any of the cd's direct thru CDbaby.com.

Welton Brothers... In a Jam


A Small Sample of Craig's Song Lyrics & Poetry

Nowhere in the World

The sun goes down
The night comes up
I'm waiting to ride
upon the clouds tonight
What happened to us?
We seem so desperate now
So just to survive
I hope we know how

Chorus:
Somewhere out there
is a place supreme
where nature controls
our very souls

Refrain:

Nowhere in the world
are we free from pain
each and every day
falls some tragic rain
The years have been
too quickly had
I find myself
quite often mad
There's just you and me
That can take the road
That leads to life
such a heavy load

Chorus, Refrain:

Judgement Day (It'll Be Okay)

I've joined the ranks
of the uncontrolled
I know someday
my story will be told
I may not want
Anyone to find out
What I've been doin'
What I'm about
Everyman must pay
For the secrets he's kept
On judgment day
So many have wept

Chorus:

Everyday Everyday Everyday that you say
It'll be ok It'll be okay
You know you must pay
After the final day
I've joined the ranks
of the uncontrolled
I know someday
My story will be told
I may not want
Anyone to find out
What I've been doin'
What I'm about
Everyman must pay
For the secrets he's kept
On judgment Day
So many have wept

Chorus:

Getting Late

All I See
Is a part of me
Alone with my sounds
There are no bounds
I cannot wait
It's getting late
My future's come
But my mind is numb

Chorus:

Will it be tomorrow
Will it be today
When I finally see
What will be my way
What have I done
Why do I run
Maybe I can find
Where lives my mind
I thought I knew
Exactly what to do
But now I find
Life's not so kind

Acoustic Mechanic


"Good stuff.. arrangements are top notch"
Danie Cortese, Cortese Entertainment


"Acoustic Mechanic" is a CD by Kent Welton, a skilled classical guitarist, who has brought you his talents on this CD in the form of songs that feature much more than guitar. Kent's impressive guitar work certainly stands on it's own on this CD. However, in addition to Kent's guitar work, the CD features passionate strings, airy syths, and wonderful piano work. The beautiful arrangements very effective meld various acoustic instruments, to provide each song a subtle life of it's own. "Night in Seville" leads off the album and sets the tone with a beautifully arranged and executed guitar piece. ""Morning Chamber" is a wonderful string arrangement and is undoubtedly an anthem to the beauty of a new day. "A Flutish Fancy," starts with a dark intensity and blooms into a fantasy-like movement. If you enjoy classical and new age music, you'll enjoy this CD.

"A GrIndie Award is RadioIndy's stamp of approval that this CD is an excellent quality CD. RadioIndy is pleased to present Kent Welton with a GrIndie award for his CD Relatively Gone... a pacifying collection of jazz instrumentals. Soothing and graceful best describe these free-flowing compositions... All in all, Kent consistently delivers great mind-easing jazz and easy-listening songs with Relatively Gone."
Xavier P., RadioIndy.com

"I really like the laid back productions, that are full of excellent instrumentation,.. To be honest from “Adaglo Venezia” which is one of my stand outs here, to “Night in Seville” “Mellow Man” and “Bossa Olda” which easily could be a Sade track, the record just gets better and stronger, there are some of the most beautiful orchestral parts, I have ever heard, quite amazing, I presume, Kent is doing all the writing here, so we have another major talent on iplacemusic, fantastic!"
Excellent XXXX + Stars, Andros Georgiou
