..one of the hardest working musicians I know and a man absolutely dedicated to his craft. ”

Stevie Jones is an independent acoustic-based singer songwriter based in Northants, UK with a career spanning four decades across a number of genres touching everything from alternative rock, Americana, alt folk and progressive rock.

He began his musical path as bassist/lyricist in 80's Kettering post punk trio Voices Of Sin. Witnessing Justin Sullivan and Billy Bragg perform solo live inspired him to go alone - switching to acoustic; busking and playing floor spots at local folk clubs. He spent time in Germany extensively gigging in the duo Acres Wild and then solo in Dublin, soaking up the city’s vibrant open mic scene. Back in the East Midlands during the early 2000s he began a close musical partnership with guitarist Mark Gill building up a reputation as a solid acoustic/rock act playing festival slots including Summer Sundae and Big Session, sharing bills with the likes of The Levellers, Show Of Hands and Macy Gray.

The full band Stevie Jones and The Wildfires soon took priority - releasing two studio albums; the 2015 debut 'Stratigraphic Heart' and 2018’s 'Angels and Sirens’. With an edgier rock direction they received airplay on Planet Rock, played at HRH Crows gaining favourable reviews. A solo acoustic album 'Come In From The Rain', written mainly during lockdown and inspired greatly by walks in nature, was released in 2020. Many of the songs from it became full band arrangements to feature on the 2023 Wildfires album ‘Clarity In Dusk’ which Blues Matters referred to as “their sound is very much their own and I can’t think of anyone writing today that has such poetry in the lyrics or the ability to back them up”

As a solo act Stevie performs solo playing original or 60s-90s classic Cover Sets  - often with Rob Matheson as duo The Waltzers . He also continues to host gigs and events under the banner of Wildfire Sessions and more recently Little Ember Sessions in Oundle alongside co-promoter Bob Cheatham.
