Gary Lightbody - (Snow Patrol) - 'Breathtaking…it kicks redemptive ass'

Michael Rother - (Neu/Kraftwerk) - 'Your concept of intimacy and space is very interesting. Beautiful music, congratulations!'

Iain archer - (Solo Artist, Ivor Novello Award winner) - 'It is new music that sounds like nothing else around at the moment - beautiful, soulful, momentary paeans of glory, I kid you not.'

MP3 Hugger Review - '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.'

Burning Codes is the solo collaborative project of Belfast born singer and songwriter Paul Archer and the project has had BBC Radio One Evening Session, BBC6 Music and national and local BBC play as well as radio stations in Europe and the states. The project has also been featured in Mojo, Hot Press and AU Magazine and and we were honoured to be asked to play at the opening of the Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast with acts like Snow Patrol, Elbow, Lisa Hannigan, Duke Special and James Walsh. Burning Codes have also supported Snow Patrol at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast.

Paul was asked by close friends Snow Patrol in 2005 to contribute vocals to their multi-platinum Eyes Open album and was asked in August 2012 to sing live with Snow Patrol at both of their 2012 V Festival appearances.

Paul's music was featured in 2007 Hollywood U.S. TV movie Aquaman ("Mercy Reef"). Early summer 2013 Paul signed to Oilbug Records to record a new album to be entitled "Hope Is Our Lightning" featuring very special guests Jonny Quinn of Snow Patrol and Iain Archer, Jake Bugg co-writer and producer, Tired Pony member and solo artist. In August 2013 Paul was delighted to be signed by the wonderful Polar Patrol Publishing. We are very excited about new adventures in the codemaking! Yours in the ever evolving code…

Burning Codes is the solo project of Irish, Belfast born singer and songwriter Paul Archer,(Paul also contributed vocals to five tracks on Snow Patrol's 'Eyes Open') the project also includes various sonic collaborators including Iain Archer (Solo Artist, Snow Patrol, Reindeer Section, and Ivor Novello winner).

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.

These ideas of our deepest, individual, unique, inner ethics, feelings thoughts,perceptions, concepts, codes of life, conduct, creativity and 'being' are not often talked about yet they are a very significant part of what really makes us a unique individual whilst we may also be part of our larger society, race, creed, culture or group.
