Far From Saints is a musical project that brings together Kelly Jones from Stereophonics and Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker from The Wind and The Wave. Their album features a unique mix of genres such as country, rock, folk, and Americana, and is the result of their shared passion for music and creative synergy. The band’s distinctive sound is defined by the vocal harmonies of Kelly and Patty.
Far From Saints will make their live debut later this month with a newly-announced warm-up show at London’s Oslo ahead of Roger Daltrey’s Teenage Cancer Trust gala at the Royal Albert Hall on March 26th. Also announced as special guests alongside Kings Of Leon at their two headline shows at Wrexham AFC on May 27th and 28th followed by their sold-out June 5th headline show at London’s EartH Theatre.

As Patty says, “It’s an album and it’s meant to be listened to from start to finish. That’s what I’d like for people to do. Listen to the whole thing and see it as a complete work on its own.”
On new track ‘Take It Through The Night’, Patty’s yearning, longing vocal provides echoes of the haunting melody and emotional resonance of Fleetwood Mac, while Kelly and Dwight’s layered wall-of-sound guitars possess both the squalling slide of timeless Southern rock and a lurching intensity which recalls Led Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’. The song was written and produced by Far From Saints, with mixing courtesy of the Grammy-nominated Al Clay (Blur, Pixies).
Kelly recalls, “Patty wrote the whole ‘Take It Through The Night’ lyric herself. I had a tiny part of a blues riff and Dwight ran away with it and turned the chorus into a bit of an Eagles and Joe Walsh vibe. We were just in full-on guitar mode. We were trying to make an Allman Brothers record with that one.”
