Pre-Order Alert: Stevie Jones and The Wildfires' New Album 'Getting There' is Coming!

In the dynamic world of independent music, Stevie Jones and The Wildfires stand out with their distinctive sounds and ever-growing emotive music catalogue.

Hailing from Northamptonshire, this experienced four-piece ensemble has captivated audiences with their unique blend of alternative rock and acoustic-based songwriting and

this summer, they are set to ignite the music scene once again with their highly anticipated fourth album, 'Getting There'.

'Getting There' is not just an album; it’s a sonic journey. Conceived initially as an acoustic solo EP, the project evolved within the creative crucible of Deadline Studios, Leicester, under the masterful guidance of producer Adam Ellis. The result? An 8-track conceptual masterpiece that weaves a fictional soundtrack to the tumultuous journey through romance, anxiety, and recovery.

This album marks a bold new direction for the band, featuring a seamless fusion of Alternative/Indie Rock, Americana, and even hints of Progressive Rock.

The album's rich tapestry is further enhanced by the inclusion of two carefully selected covers - classics by The Waterboys and City and Colour - adding layers of nostalgia and depth. Special guest appearances by guitarist Mark Gill and vocalist Jodie Erica bring additional texture and dimension, ensuring each track is a unique auditory experience.

Critics have long recognized the band's potential and artistry.

Alex Novak of Pulse-Alternative Magazine reflects, "It always feels as if the band were destined for the national stage, well that step-up in class is now here.”

Similarly, Marc Higgins of Fatea Magazine praises their thought-provoking compositions: “Steve Jones and The Wildfires are an interesting, intelligent band. They can rock like the best of them…but there is also thought, breadth, and depth to their music. Surely going places if they can get to enough ears.”

And Andy Snipper from Blues Matters Magazine lauds their lyrical prowess: “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.”

Mark your calendars for August 16th, when the band will host a soft release CD launch at The Musician in Leicester - a must-attend event for the fellow Wildfires out there and any music lovers who enjoy discovering new indie bands. Following this exclusive launch, the album will be available on all major streaming platforms in October 2024.
