Craig David Ross is an American guitarist best known for performing and recording with Lenny Kravitz.


Ross was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Craig Ross picked up the guitar at age 8, following a path that he hasn't deviated from since. That first guitar, borrowed from a neighbor's garage, was his foray into the world of the Beatles and Chuck Berry, his early influences.

Before the age of 16, he started playing the L.A. clubs and eventually formed the band The Broken Homes in high school. They opened for the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan, INXS, and Jerry Lee Lewis, among others, while doing clubs gigs with bands such as Guns N' Roses and Jane's Addiction. The band made three records for MCA records in the 80's, working with producers such as Andy Johns of Zeppelin and Stones fame. This seminal period gave Craig his education in studio work.

A chance meeting in an LA pool hall with Lenny Kravitz (facilitated by Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go's) shaped the course of his career for the next 13 years. After touring Lenny's Mama Said album, Craig joined Lenny in the studio, co-writing and playing all the guitars on the track Are You Gonna Go My Way, an anthem that helped elevate Lenny's career to new heights. The collaboration continued with stand-out solos on tracks such as Believe and Is There Any love in Your Heart helping make Lenny a top rock act. Craig has written and played on every subsequent Lenny album since as well as records by Sheryl Crow, Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, The Black Crowes, Nikka Costa and others.

His musical influences include Freddie King, Albert King, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Cornell Dupree and Jimmy Nolen. Apart from studio work, performing and writing, he is now expanding into production and is currently doing projects for Roxie Records.

Surviving all of the changes the music business has to offer, Craig continues on his journey that is now spanning over three decades.

He was a member of the LA rock band Broken Homes; Ross went by the stage name Kreg Ross, and recorded 3 albums for MCA Records with the band. In 1991, he met Lenny Kravitz in a pool hall and joined his band to tour in support of the album Mama Said (1991). He has played on every album by Kravitz since. Ross co-wrote the songs "Spinning Around Over You", "Are You Gonna Go My Way", "Is There Any Love in Your Heart", "Where Are We Runnin'?", "Stillness of Heart", and "Lady" with Kravitz, as well as numerous songs on Kravitz's 2008 release It Is Time for a Love Revolution. He has two daughters named Mia and Devon and his wife's name is Anna. Also in a side band call Honky with Mark (muddy) Dutton and T. Grier before joining Lenny

Ross also played on The Black Crowes 2001 album, Lions, on the track "Greasy Grass River", and on former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford's first solo album, It's About Time in 2003.

Most recently, Craig appeared as a guest guitarist on the band Spoon's performance on the television show Austin City Limits. The episode premiered on PBS on October 9, 2010. He appeared on the song Nobody Gets Me But You and as co-guest guitarist with Charlie Sexton on the song Who Makes Your Money.
