Romeo's Daughter are a U.K AOR band fronted by female vocalist Leigh Matty, expertly backed by songwriter and guitarist Craig Joiner, Tony Mitman Keyboards, Ed Poole on bass and drummer Andy Wells.

The band came together under the direction of producer Robert 'Mutt' Lange who along with John Parr and Craig, worked hard on the songs/production and armed with a contract with Jive Records, issued the singles 'Don't break my heart', 'I cry myself to sleep at night' and 'Heaven in the backseat'. The 1989 self-titled album sold well and the band proved a popular live attraction, receiving much attention from Radio 1's Rock Show which broadcast live concerts and an exclusive session. 'Heaven In The Back Seat' meanwhile turned up on the soundtrack to Nightmare On Elm Street 5.

The band went to ground but resurfaced in 1993 with another single, 'Attracted To The Animal', followed by a major tour and an album on Music For Nations.

Im March 2012 Romeo's Daughter released their third studio a;bum 'Rapture' and are heading to Rock City with some special guests this November to show us hows it's done.
