Harrison Craig

Melbourne’s Harrison Craig first made his mark on Australia in 2013, taking out the second series of The Voice Australia. At a young age, Harrison found that singing was a remedy to his stutter, becoming a place of peace and contentment. Over the past three years, Harrison has set records on the ARIA charts with two new albums. A gifted singer and artist, he has also recently entered the world of publishing, creating a children’s book on how he found his passion for singing. Harrison also visited Avondale School as part of Book Week in term 3. We are excited to have him perform this year.
