A Washington actor is juggling film roles with national stars alongside the release of his debut EP.

Craig Conway, 38, who appeared in recent crime film Harrigan, alongside Stephen Tompkinson, is also chasing his singer/song-writer dreams with the release of EP, In Transition.

He teamed up with producers Dennis Dicker and Dylan Barnes, of Coldstone Records, to record the release at a home studio in Newbottle and London.

The result is described as having a “Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Scott Walker feel with a contemporary side.”

Craig, who has also appeared in TV shows such as Dog Soldiers, Wire in the Blood, Vera and Inspector George Gently, said: “We think it’s a good foundation and we have big plans to release an album in the new year.”

Craig, who is due to appear in new BBC spy drama The Game, added: “Music has always been a huge influence in my life and work.

“Writing songs has always been part of my life, so now to be able to express it with the support and backing of those I admire, is a wonderful experience and one I hope will bring enjoyment to others.”
