Agent Craft retires

2 October 2017

VETERAN AGENT and co-founder of X-ray Touring Jeff Craft has announced his retirement.

With a roster of artistes including Elbow, Pixies and PJ Harvey, Craft began his career in the late 1970s at Cowbell, before moving to Derek Block Artist’s Agency, John Jackson’s Fair Warning and then onto Helter Skelter.

In January 2005, Craft left Helter Skelter with Ian Huffam to form X-ray, together with Martin Horne and Scott Thomas who had departed from ITB.

He tells LIVE UK that he decided to retire after turning 60 this year and in order to spend more time with his family, while he still had his ‘health and sanity’.

“I am still connected to X-ray, albeit from home, until spring 2018 and will be overseeing the handover of my roster during that period,” says Craft.
