A veteran musician best known for leading the San Francisco bay area band "KC Craine and the Conditions" in the mid-80's, KC shared the stage with other well-known power-pop stalwarts like Huey Lewis and the News, Greg Khin and, Eddie and the Tide. During that time, KC won several songwriting awards and eventually was lured to Los Angeles with hopes of a major-label deal. "Unfortunately, the record business was not condusive to much creativity," says KC. "It was all about hit records and hairstyles."
After an ill-fated stint with a label in Hollywood, KC returned to his roots in Oregon and started a family. "I took about 10 years off," says KC. "My old Martin D28 spent most of the time tucked under the bed. One day I realized that music can still have an important place in my life. That's how 'Second Wind' was born. Now I care primarily about sharing my music and providing a little joy in the world...not whether or not I've written the next hit single."
The results are exactly on target. "Second Wind has been a life saver for me," says Chris C. from Portland. "I have a stressful job...and that CD helps me relax and unwind when I'm stressed out. This album has not left my CD changer for months."
KC's second CD, "Daddy's Old Guitar," was released in November of 2005. For more information visit www.MovingHandsMusic.com.
