"Timothy Craig has the voice, sound and charisma of a future star",
"Craig has a voice that cuts forcefully through the instrumentation with just the right blend of smoothness and roughness", "They play off each other with thrashing chords and gunfire rhythms, much to the delight of the audience". - Whisky a Go Go -
Timothy Craig was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Southwest, Florida. His passion for music undoubtedly stems from his father, who put himself through college writing songs and fronting a five piece Rock n' Roll band in the 60's. Surrounded by vintage guitars, classic drum kits and tube amplifiers, Timothy formed his first band in seventh grade. The CT2Express played lots of gigs, though never outside his living room.
While in college in Gainesville,
Florida inspired by Tom Petty,
John Mellencamp, Jimmy Buffett, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger and Bryan Adams, Timothy began writing his own songs. Realizing that the closest music industry town was Nashville, he moved there, put a band together and spent years playing his original music in clubs and festivals. The band also played several shows at the Tennessee State Women's Prison!
Timothy then moved to
Los Angeles, put a new band together and sang his songs in all the legendary LA clubs like the Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy and
Club Lingerie. The Timothy Craig Band also performed between the Hollywood All-Star baseball game and the Los Angeles Angels baseball game at the Angels stadium. After landing various acting gigs, including the role of Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers on the NBC television series "American Dreams", Timothy joined the Screen Actors Guild (SAG). Currently, Timothy spends time in Nashville, Los Angeles
and Southwest Florida.
In 2017, Timothy's song "You Got It" (written by Timothy & Billy Falcon) reached #2 on the UK (Europe) Hot Disc Chart. "One Small Miracle" (written by Timothy) from his album 360°, peaked at #5 on the Hot Disc Chart and hit #1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Chart. The
"You Got It" and "One Small Miracle" music videos were both added to several video networks. Heartland TV included "One Small Miracle" in their Christmas programming.
April 2019, "Which Way Did They Go" (written by Timothy) from his EP SEMI GLOSS hit #1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Chart.
