ABOUT - Stevie Jones and The Wildfires

Northamptonshire's Stevie Jones and The Wildfires provide a unique blend of acoustic-driven rock with down to earth, infectious songs. Their 2016 acclaimed debut album ‘Stratigraphic Heart’ received favourable reviews and after a busy year promoting with radio, press and a string of live appearances they have emerged from Deadline Studios, Leicester to reveal the follow up titled 'Angels and Sirens‘.

The line up now features Stevie Jones (guitar/vocals), Vassilis Damitriadis(guitar), Jake Patrick (drums), Bob Dabrowski (bass) with regular guest Autumn Dawn Leader on piano and vocals. LA guitarist Janet Robin (String Revolution, Lindsay Buckingham Band) and top Leicester harp player Sean Clutterham also provide guest appearances.

The 13 tracks are split between hard-edged guitar based songs and more delicate acoustic arrangements that touch on a broad range of influences - think maybe Counting Crows, Stone Temple Pilots, New Model Army and Ryan Adams.

Rounded off by some excellent production by Adam Ellis 'Angels and Sirens' will take you on a very real journey through life, sex and love with some gritty, honest songwriting and is set for full release in March 2018.

ABOUT - Stevie Jones

Stevie’s acoustic roots were laid down busking and playing floor spots at folk clubs in his native Northants. In the 90s he lived for two years in Germany, extensively gigging in the duo Acres Wild and then spent time in Dublin, playing on the city’s vibrant open mic scene - experiences which provided him with a wealth of influences and inspiration. Back home in 2001 after meeting up at a local acoustic night he was joined on stage by the guitar skills of Mark Gill which forged a musical partnership spanning 10 years building up a reputation as a solid live act. Support gigs included Nick Harper, Ian Mc Nabb, Chris Helme, The Trews, Justin Sullivan and Dean White, Blackballed plus slots at Leicesters’ top festivals Big Session and Summer Sundae.  He set up the live music service Wildfire Sessions in 2011 putting on gigs and open mics across the East Midlands which he operated full time but is now focusing more on the band, The Wildfires. He also plays as a covers artist solo or with his duo 'The Waltzers', featuring Rob Matheson.

His solo set is is not only a stripped down version of what you might see with the band - he always plays to the room, blending his back catalogue and true life stories with a wide range of covers and influences spanning from David Bowie to Van Morrison to Neil Young and Ryan Adams and much more.
