LATEST PRESS RELEASE :
Simon D James debut EP 'Songs from a Dream Long Forgotten' is out now!
A Singer-Songwriter from Brighton, UK. “Simon creates a distinct sound of pure emotion with a very humbling gravitas to his music.” - B-Side Guys.
The EP Includes previously released singles 'Dearest Lovely World' and 'In the Field' both which have received National Radio play on BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio as well as receiving many amazing review from different press.
Hard to pigeon-hole, this EP sits somewhere in the Alt Folk / Indie world. You can hear the influence of classic songwriter such as Bowie and Cobain and although full of sonic surprises he has been compared to contemporariness such as: The Decemberists, Vance Joy, Cosmo Sheldrake and The Everything Everything.
'Songs from a dream long Forgotten' sees Simon team up with the producers at Green Mount Studio, Lee Smith & Jamie Lockhart, who arrange and play a wide variety of instruments, including violin, synths and glockenspiel. Simon showcases his collaboration with artists and long time friends, Peter Moore on 'Burn The Man' and Kate Mc Sherry on 'Take Your Time'. There is a cameo on keys by Simon's cousin, Stan Byrne on 'How do you do?', and the suppositious vocals of Iva Vucenovic feature on all the tracks.
Starting out busking his way through Europe and going on to bring Delhi train station to a standstill as thousands came to watch him play on the platform, there seems to be nowhere Simon can't charm with his music!
The singer-songwriter from Brighton set to take the world by storm with his beautiful music, influenced by the classic songwriters of the likes of The Beatles, Nirvana and Bowie. At just 16 years old music had become his passion and soon became his ticket round the world!
The new EP is predominately written by Simon with the help of Kate McSherry who he met on his travels whilst camping in the Redwood Forrest in North California. He has taken a piece of each person and place from his travels to create a patchwork of joys and frustrations that inspire his music.
The EP was recorded at Green Mount Studios in Leeds. Jamie Lockhart and Lee Smith performed, arranged and produced the EP.
