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.
The band‟s latest album ‘Rapture’, released in early 2012, has been critically praised worldwide for its astounding song writing, performance and production and the first single from the album, 'Bittersweet', is in Classic Rock Magazine‟s 'Top songs of 2012' chart.
Their eponymous debut album released in 1988 was produced by „Mutt‟ Lange and John Parr and released on the Jive label. 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. Their track „Heaven in the Backseat‟ was also the opening track for the film, „Nightmare on Elm Street 5‟
