“Beautiful melodies tinged with sadness, soaring guitar breaks delivered with a voice of experience. A unique voice that at times in which you can hear the influence of The Levellers or New Model Army” - This Is Noise
“A hint of Counting Crows, The Long Ryders, Stone Temple Pilots ...Timeless wistfulness combined with rollocking rhythms ” - Rock Society Magazine
Stevie Jones and The Wildfires are a well-established Northamptonshire based 4 piece band who deliver their own unique blend of modern alternative rock centred around powerful acoustic-based songwriting. With a number of line up changes over the last decade they have received favourable reviews and airplay including BBC Introducing, Planet Rock and BBC Radio Scotland. Live they are just as comfortable playing smaller stages as well as gracing larger venues and festivals which has seen them perform at HRH Crows 02 Sheffield, The Robin 2 Bilston, The Tivoli Buckley, Hope and Anchor London, De Montfort Hall and Gardens and The Musician in Leicester over the years. Their third studio album ‘Clarity In Dusk’ is out now.

The new 9 track album ‘Clarity In Dusk’ was recorded at Deadline Studios with producer Adam Ellis who also worked on the previous 2018 album ‘Angels and Sirens’. Musically it takes you on a journey through a variety of different genres. There’s a raw alt folk rock honesty where previous comparisons of New Model Army and The Levellers can be sited but there’s also a melodic Americana influence in the guitar-led songs in some of the arrangements. Elements of Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson who Stevie discovered during the writing can be heard in some of the more progressive rock moments.
‘Clarity In Dusk’ is available now on CD/Download BUY HERE. Listen on digital platforms HERE
"it always feels as if the band were destined for the national stage, well that step-up in class is now here with the band’s third album……'Come in From the Rain’ has “hit” single written all over it and is screaming out to be put on a Radio 2 playlist"
Alex Novak, Pulse-Alternative Magazine
“This is a lovely album, with strong songwriting throughout (and great playing). The vibe is soft rock/alt-folk/Americana. There’s a nice dose of melancholy and reflection but it’s also uplifting too.”
David Randall, Get Ready To Rock Magazine, 4.5 stars
