Songwriter Jim Lawton is the mastermind behind the British band Electric Enemy. A European tour with Alice in Chains singer Jerry Cantrell was just the beginning of what 2023 has in store for this super talent.
Jim Lawton's talent to bring together multiple people, whilst coming up with spectacular ideas for new songs is stellar. He is a talented and up-and-coming songwriter hailing from the UK.

As a songwriter, Jim has a natural ability to craft catchy, relatable tunes and thought-provoking lyrics, and his passion for music is evident in every song he writes. In addition to his songwriting skills, Jim is also a skilled musician, proficient on a variety of instruments including guitar, piano, and drums.

Jim and his band Electric Enemy
The current single "Burn" made it to the top 10 on TikTok for Rock.
‘It’s written from the perspective of someone having trouble expressing themselves’
Jim Lawton about the song "Burn" in an interview with Inthebucketplaylist
Electric Enemy are a London based band with energetic angst powered by heavy
guitars, colossal drums and dynamicvocals. Driving guitarriffs are met by perfectly crafted melodies, delivering a grown-up sound that cuts through the noise. Their message is born from their response to the world around them - with lyrics that tell tales of broken hearts, a broken world, and breaking boundaries.
Jim (vocals/guitars), Orlando(guitars), Ewan (bass) and Max (drums) come together to create a sound that could be likened to Muse, The Killers and Queens Of The Stoneage, but with artistry that could only be Electric Enemy.
