Scott is a former banker from Dunedin who started his music career in the late 1960s. After involvement in the bands Klap and Fantasy, Scott joined the band Revival who won a Battle of the Bands contest in May 1969, releasing Viva Bobby Joe which peaked at #14 on the related singles chart. He later left the band, and released a series of commercially successful singles beginning with a cover version of Australian pop star Ronnie Burns Smiley which got to #3 on the New Zealand pop chart. He then released the single Star Crossed Lovers which was his only number one single, Let's Get A Little Sentimental, and then Ciao Baby, of which the singer Lynne Randell later performed a cover version which made the top ten, and When Jojo Runs. Around 1975, his last single to be successful was Wind and Rain, peaking at #11 on the New Zealand pop chart. For some time in the late 60's Craig Scott and The Fantasy were the resident group at "The Scene" dance hall/ nightclub at 224 Tuam St Christchurch, the building was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake. The Scene is best described as a "teeny bopper" venue, which operated Friday Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. Craig and the group were very popular. Ten o'clock closing of hotels caused the venue to close about 1970.
