Craig Westwood Releases Single ‘On the Rise’ on December 8th 2023

Craig Westwood is excited to announce the release of his third single: ‘On the Rise’ on December 8th 2023. The song is in Craig’s distinctive pop-rock style featuring acoustic guitars, and a rousing string and brass section.

Craig was winner of the social media platform Vero’s ‘Great Guitar Contest’ in 2019. His prize: a Taylor 717 Grand Pacific guitar, signed by many well-know artists, was presented at the famous ‘Norman’s Rare Guitars’ store in Los Angeles. and the video for ‘On the Rise’ was filmed in and around L.A. after the presentation.

“On the Rise started as a song about manifesting a successful future,” he says. “I got interested in just how changing your mindset from negativity to one of positivity can bring about the things that you want to happen. I thought… wouldn’t that be amazing!  Then I went and won a guitar contest!”

‘On the Rise’ is self-recorded and produced. The guitars and keyboards for the single were recorded in Craig’s home studio in Yorkshire, and the song features his favourite session drummer, Emily Dolan Davies, who recently toured with Kim Wilde, and who plays frequently on Craig’s songs.

‘On the Rise’ is available from December 8th 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.
