STEVE CRADOCK - PEACE CITY WEST
Steve Cradock spent his youth in various different bands - The Boys and ultimately Ocean Colour Scene releasing Moseley Shoals which sold over a million records. In fact, Steve's guitar riff from the hit single The Riverboat Song was the soundtrack to one of UK's biggest pop culture phenomenons of its time, TFI Friday hosted by Chris Evans.
Steve began his apprenticeship with Paul Weller as his young sidekick guitar player. "Incredible really and we're still playing music together 28 years later. He's one of my soul mates for sure, I still get really excited working with him, He's huge inspiration, it's a total joy working with him it really is."
Seven years ago, he was asked to tour with The Specials after Roddy Radiation left the band. He is now a firm live member and thrilled to be playing with them. Steve produced PP Arnold's comeback album, The New Adventures of PP Arnold. Steve has juggled touring, writing, producing and recording with many artists even DJs from time to time and is still as busy as ever. As well as releasing his own solo records, he has put out music from PP Arnold, Yasmin Kiddle, and Leah Weller.
Steve's fourth solo album is due for release at the end of 2021. In the meantime, he has remixed and mastered his third solo album Peace City West.
