The Fireflys are a UK-Americana/Alternative band from Runcorn, North-West England.
Based on the songwriting of Singer/Guitarist Lee Wylding, the bands line up is completed by Bassist Sam Bramhall, Piano player Chris Tann, Drummer Andie Packer, Acoustic Guitarist Joe Paul Forber & Guitarist Phil Conway.
Marking the beginning of a new generation of UK Americana/alternative guitar based bands, The Fireflys are indebted sonically to the likes of Neil Young and Tom Petty, to more recently R.E.M. and City & Colour.
The band are regularly played at Old Trafford stadium on Matchdays and features on MUTV, BBC Manchester and That’s Manchester TV have afforded the band a cult status in the Northwest of England.
Fireworks Magazine has labelled them “The UK’s answer to Counting Crows”, whilst Mike Peters of The Alarm recently said on live TV that the band “are a good mix of REM and The Gin Blossoms”. The band signed to Strawberry Moon Records in May 2017.
