Born in 1968 to a teenage mother & unknown father, plucked from foster care and adopted by the greatest parents on earth, Craig Parker Adams grew up in a suburb of St. Paul, MN along with an adopted older brother & sister. 

Not long out of high school Craig moved to California with 88 bucks & 3 guitars. Many years after playing in nowhere bands Craig got involved in becoming a self taught sound engineer & producer. As a means of survival, Craig slowly opened the doors of his creative space in 1998 & started recording others which lead to the creation of his business Winslow Ct Studio Inc.
