Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ve had to postpone Craig’s Showcase. There’s won’t be a TwickFolk event this Sunday.
Craig Joiner has been a professional musician for over 25 years, writing songs recorded by the likes of Heart, Bonnie Tyler, Eddie Money and Steps. Surprisingly, 2019 marks the first ever Craig Joiner solo album. Craig’s musical journey began in 1987 as a member of Romeo’s Daughter. Their self-titled debut on Jive Records was produced by the legendary Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange (Def Leppard, The Cars, ACDC, Shania Twain) and spawned a whirlwind tour of the USA and an appearance on the Billboard charts.
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 charts and Eddie Money having a huge hit with their track ‘Heaven In the Backseat’. Following the demise of the band, Craig signed to Zomba Music and began writing library music for TV and radio where he was equally successful, having his music played on programmes such as ‘Friends’ and ‘Cold Feet’. He is currently signed to Universal and Zone Music where he continues this line of work.
As a session player Craig also has an impressive list of names he has recorded for including Tom Jones. In recent years Craig has been a stalwart of the Folk Club scene where he has gained an impressive following and where he honed the songs for the long awaited solo debut album ‘Art of Landing’.
N.B. This will be a ‘TwickFolk Showcase’ night where guests perform one 45 minute set preceded by floor spots.
