A professional musician for over 25 years, Craig Joiner has written songs that have been recorded by the likes of Heart, Bonnie Tyler, Eddie Money and Steps, and had his songs used in major Hollywood movies such as ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, ‘102 Dalmatians’ and ‘Jack Reacher’. Craig’s incredible journey began back in 1987 when his band Romeo’s Daughter were signed to Jive Records and released their debut album a year later. Over the years their infectious music attracted the highest calibre of established artists with Heart covering their single ‘Wild Child’ on their multi-million selling album ‘Brigade’ achieving No.2 on the Billboard Rock All Play charts and Eddie Money having a huge hit with their track ‘Heaven In the Backseat’. Following the demise of the band, Craig began writing library music for TV and radio where he was equally successful, having his music played on programmes such as ‘Friends’, ‘Cold Feet’, ‘Would I Lie To You’ ‘European Golf’ and Disney. As a session player Craig also has an impressive list of names he has recorded for including Tom Jones, Jane Wiedlin and Peter Collins. It’s a real treat to welcome a musician of such calibre to Ely Folk Festival. Craig will perform on Sunday evening.
