He is also the president and producer of The Mackinaw Harvest Music Group. His songs have been heard on dozens of radio stations across the country as well as on MTV, ABC, and PAXnet television. He is a graduate of The Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and has been producing audio projects (including recordings for local and national artists) for over 20 years. He is a multi-instrumentalist and is proficient working in Pop, Rock, Jazz, Acoustic, Folk, Country and New Age styles.
Crittenden is an avid fisherman and Grand Rapids native. Listen to the audio above to learn more about why fishing is important to him and how he prepares trout, salmon and whitefish for a meal.
When we spoke with Crittenden, we asked for fish recipes. But, he told us that fish is sometimes overworked and the dryness is covered up with sauces. “You don’t cook it – you just threaten it,” Crittenden told me.
