Burning Codes music concerns our own unique messages, the codes which are truly ours, uniquely understood and owned by each of us, uniquely. The music is birthed from our moments and what we do with these moments, how we see, feel, react, encode and decipher the inner messages and the outer manifestations of what we feel, think and do.
Breathtaking… it kicks redemptive ass.

Iain archer – Solo Artist, Ivor Novello Award winner
Burning Codes are showing why it is sometimes better to lead by what comes from inside rather than follow what is going on all around.
