The Fireflys are a UK-Americana/Alternative band from Runcorn, North-West England.
Based on the songwriting of Singer/Guitarist Lee Wylding, the band’s line up is completed by Bassist – Ellen Stott, Piano – Chris Tann, and Drummer – Andie Packer.
Marking the beginning of a new generation of UK Americana/Alternative guitar bands to feature a female rhythm section, The Fireflys are indebted sonically to the likes of Neil Young and Tom Petty, to more recently R.E.M., and City and Colour.
Fireworks Magazine has labelled them ‘The UK’s answer to Counting Crows’, whilst Mike Peters of The Alarm recently said, live on TV, the band ‘are a good mix or R.E.M. and The Gin Blossoms’.
After the cult success of ‘Embers of the Autumn’ (the and’s 3rd Album), The Fireflys 4th LP ‘The Illumination of Everything’ is due for release in April 2016 and will be distributed through Townsend Store (The Who, Noel Gallagher) on Canadia Records label.
Three singles have already been lifted from the album, ‘Release/Repeat’, ‘Branches’ & ‘Illumination’, and have enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio, Manchester United’s Old Trafford Football Stadium, MUTV, Bay TV Liverpool and various radio stations, with each single peaking at #1 on the Amazon charts and Top 10 in the iTunes Country and Alternative charts respectively.
