"There's no better feeling than playing your own songs while the audience is having a good time!"
Phil Daniels founded THE FIRES as a drummer and lead singer at the age of only 13 years in 2006. Together with his younger brother Michael Stevens on guitar and an additional bass man they played as a 50's Rock'n'Roll trio at this time. Since spring of 2007, they have delighted their audiences and have gained an excellent reputation, including that of being the youngest Rock'n'Roll Band in Europe.
Having given a large number of concerts within Switzerland, the boys managed the leap to the international stage in 2009 when Italy's leading shipping company, Costa, were seeking a young band of just their style to play during the maiden voyage of the Costa Pacifica, also known as the "Music Ship". They found what they were looking for in THE FIRES. The boys' performances made the voyage even more memorable.
As of 2010, the band's career started to grow faster and faster. They played as supporting act of Bon Jovi, Mika, Jerry Lee Lewis, Brian Setzer, Shakin' Stevens and several top Swiss musicians. Many more gigs all over Europe came up. And also starting in 2010, they refined their music style by adding other genres to the classic rock'n'roll.
Their third album NEWSCHOOL REVIVAL was produced by the Italian-American producer SerGIO Fertitta, who formerly has worked (amongst many others) with Shaggy, Snoop Dogg, Gianna Nannini and Coolio.
Since 2015, the band manages their music and arranges all songs by themselves. Phil and Michael are a perfectly matching composer team. They already wrote over 50 songs together in pop-rock style with a twist of rock'n'roll and latin. The band counts four people, together with bass player Fab O'Lous and piano and hammond player Lucas Mo.

With the basis of rock'n'roll they want to give their songs a fresh, young and unused touch. When you listen to this music, you will feel the intimate roots of modern music.
