Romeo’s Daughter are one of Britain’s finest AOR mainstream rock bands fronted by Leigh Matty, recently voted Number 5 ‘Lady Rock Singer of all time’ in Classic Rock Magazine. Craig Joiner is the band’s guitarist, songwriter and producer. Ed Poole is the bass player and also co produces alongside Craig. Completing the line-up is Andy Wells on drums.

Their latest album ‘Spin‘ has been receiving an incredible reception at gigs and festivals all over Europe, playing to bigger crowds every time.  

The band’s pedigree is second to none, with each member having previously worked at the highest levels with artists such as: Bonnie Tyler, Whitney Houston, Roxette, Meatloaf, Tom Jones, John Parr, Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ Kevin Rowland and, Ex GoGo, Jane Wiedlin!

From the release of their debut Album in 1988, produced in part by the infamous Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange, it was surely to be only a matter of time before Romeo’s Daughter hit the headlines.  During a whirlwind tour of the U.S.A, their single Don’t Break My Heart’ leapt up the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.  The calibre of their songs attracted many established artists; Heart covered the single ‘Wild Child on their 3 million selling album Brigade, achieving No. 2 on the Billboard Rock All Play chart.  Eddie Money, Bonnie Tyler and the recently reformed Steps too, have had recording successes with other Romeos’ titles.  Their track Heaven in the Backseat was the also the opener for the film, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 5’.

The second album, ‘Delectable‘, was more like a live album and well worth the wait. It was produced and recorded by Romeo’s Daughter and Andy Reilly, and was later mixed by Steve Brown (The Cult, Manic Street Preachers and Wham).

20 years down the line, that same great response spurred them on to re-group after a magnificent reception at the 2009 Firefest, in Nottingham.  Guitarist Joiner, needing no encouragement, had already started to pen new Romeo’s Daughter songs and after much hard graft from each band member, ‘Rapture‘ was recorded. It captures all of Romeos Daughters’ style and verve with a little bit more besides. Here’s a little taster –

In the last 5 years, they’ve been touring all over the UK, Germany and Spain, Solo and also supporting FM and Tyketto. They kicked off 2017 with dates in Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham and London – solo and supporting Tyketto.

In November they will be headlining at The Borderline in London on 3rd November and Eleven in Stoke on 4th November. Hand of Dimes will be supporting them on both dates. More dates to be announced shortly.
