About Craig & Kristen
Catholic Musicians and Songwriters Craig & Kristen Colson are a husband and wife team who lead music together at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Phoenix, AZ. Craig has joined up with World Library Publications with his debut EP called "I Am the Way". This new collection was produced with fellow WLP recording artist Ed Bolduc and features 7 New songs for use in Liturgy, retreats and other events. The EP features some amazing musicians and includes songs that can be used in Lent & Advent as well as a crisp, new contemporary Pentecost Sequence entitled "Veni Sancte Spiritus" which was written for the 2011 Life Teen Convention held in Scottsdale Arizona.
Craig & Kristen also have a collection of contemporary, verbatim Psalm Responses with Spirit & Song entitled Fill Us With Your Love which features 17 psalms for use in Liturgies.
Craig & Kristen have presented at Life Teen Music conferences as well as at National Pastoral Musicians conventions.
