Craig lives in Chelsea, Melbourne with his mother, Janine Cochrane and brother Connor. His father left the family when Craig was six. Craig battles a stutter when he speaks but it has improved since competing in The Voice. To help build his confidence, his mother encouraged him to join the Victorian Boys Choir and undertake private tuition. He completed his VCE in 2012 at Sandringham College, where he was Music Captain. In 2010 Craig fronted Garage Band High and sang the lead on their video of the song "Viva la Vida".
Craig is influenced by many artists of different genres, including Elvis Presley, Andrea Boccelli, Michael Buble, Nat King Cole, and many more. He sings in a unique style which he has named 'popera'.
