“Having one of your favorite voices on the planet be your good friend and younger brother of sorts can be strange at times, but it certainly is the case for me when it comes to Craig Aven! That said, his great voice is just the beginning. His ability to express his raw feelings and prayers in his songwriting is the most unique and moving part of his gift. I am so exited to see what’s ahead for this humble yet greatly gifted servant of the Lord!”

Tommy Walker – Worship Leader and Songwriter


“Our label Pure Spring’s Gospel put out a CD entitled Pure Worship, and one of the songs on that CD was from this young man Craig Aven. His song Faithful is a song that will stop you in your tracks. It’s a song that will make you remember how good God has been, and that without Him we would all fail.”

CeCe Winans – Recording Artist
