"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".
Timothy Craig was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Southwest, Florida.
His passion for music undoubtedly stems from his father Vilas Craig, 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 rock band in seventh grade. The CT2 Express 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 biz town was Nashville, he moved there, put a band together and spent years playing his original Roots Rock / Americana brand of music in clubs and festivals including: Summer Lights, Fall Fest at the
Belle Meade Mansion, Bellevue Music Fest, opening for Cheap Trick at Nashville's Riverfest and playing several shows at the Tennessee State Women's Prison! Timothy also founded his own record label
Ball & Chain Entertainment and released his first EP of original music Steps Toward the Door. A few years later he released two full length albums Rip, Roll & Ride and State Line.

'NYPD Blue', Timothy joined the Screen Actors Guild (SAG / AFTRA).
