Burning Wire is the new musical venture of Welsh singer, songwriter and producer, Kevin Jones. As the lead singer and guitarist of acclaimed Port Talbot band of Two Minds Crack, Kevin was signed to the independent record label Sedition and produced by renowned heavyweights Gus Dudgeon (Elton John, David Bowie) and Laurie Latham (Robert Plant, the Police). The band's first two singles were released to critical acclaim and caught the attention of New York music maverick, Seymour Stein and his Sire record label. Signed to Sire - which at the time featured artistes such as Madonna, Talking Heads and the Undertones - there was an enthusiastic reaction to the release of a further two singles and an album, and a successful British and European tour including many radio and television appearances, and top ten hits in Europe and Phillipines. Having run their course the band finally split in the 90s and Kevin began a successful career in music production - opening his own recording studio, eastriver studio in London. As well as working and producing many new and exciting British artistes, he also composes and records production music for publishing companies such as BMG, Chappell and Zomba with his work featuring in films and media networks worldwide including the BBC, ITV, Channel4, Sky, NBC and Fox. In 2010 Kevin created Burning Wire as a further artistic outlet for his songwriting and production skills. This enterprising music collective sees him working with a number of accomplished musicians, most notably forming a close working relationship with the renowned session guitarist and ex-Passion Puppet, David Rollins. After a highly productive year of songwriting and recording, February 2011 marks the completion and release of Burning Wire's debut album, 'Cold'. These eleven laid back contemporary tracks focus on a more traditional singer, songwriter style that blends an amazing array of influences from the new folk acoustic ambience of John Martyn and Ryan Adams, and the country infused lush harmonies of the Eagles and CSNY, to the wider rock soundscapes of the Manic Street Preachers and Radiohead. Throughout 2011 Burning Wire will be showcasing the debut album and performing a number of live shows all over the country from small acoustic sets to full band gigs.
