Craig Westwood Releases Single ‘Only the Good Ones Go First’ on August 18th 2023

Craig Westwood is excited to announce the release of his debut single: ‘Only the Good Ones Go First’ on August 18th 2023. The single is a powerful and bouncy song that showcases Westwood’s signature sound and acoustic pop-rock style.

It’s Craig’s first solo single, since winning the social media platform Vero’s ‘Great Guitar Contest’ in 2019, and releasing his first self-written single ‘Thinking On Your Own’ with the band P.ii (pronounced “Pie”), formed during the covid pandemic in 2020.

‘Only the Good Ones Go First’ is self-recorded and produced. The guitars for the single were recorded at Chapel Street Studios in Leeds, UK, and the rest of the instruments mixed in Craig’s home studio.

“It’s a song about life. It’s a strange phrase, very British, that you often hear people say at funerals. But I didn’t want it to be a funeral dirge, it needed to be powerful, and upbeat, and also not to be taken too seriously. More like Eric Idle’s ‘Always Look On the Bright Side of Life’, but done a bit like ELO.”

‘Only the Good Ones Go First’ is available on August 18th on all streaming platforms. 

Craig is currently promoting the single online and is available for interviews and features. For more information, please visit for all useful links.
