Phill Millward

Phill is the guitarist and founding member of the band along with Steve.

The Band was formed with the pretence of "Fuck it, I'm just going to write music that I like"

and so 13 Burning was born.

With musical influences from Sabbath, Maiden, Judas Priest, Primal Fear to name a few, Phill's mission is for 13 Burning to keep classic metal alive.



James Pelley

Bassist James, from Oxford, has been playing the bass guitar from the age of 15, always jammed on and off in bands. The first time he heard Metallica’s ‘One’ he knew the path he needed to take!

Influences are Steve Harris from Iron Maiden, Cliff Burton/Jason Newsted from Metallica, Steve DiGiorgio from Death/Testament, Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath, Troy Sanders from Mastodon, David Ellefson from Megadeth and many many more!



Steve Kearley

Oxford born Drummer Steve has always been a rocker! At the age of 9 he was introduced to “Piece of Mind” by Iron Maiden, and, as they say, the rest is history!


Inspired and influenced by the following Bands and their Drummers: Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Led Zeppelin, Metallica (pre St. Anger)! Anthrax, Def Leppard, The Who to name but a few!
