LATEST PRESS RELEASE :
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 album 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 album was recorded at Green Mount Studios in Leeds. Jamie Lockhart and Lee Smith performed, arranged and produced the album.
Forthcoming single 'Dearest Lovely World' was inspired by Simon's time spent in Calais, seeing the loss and the pain and the suffering in that was occurring. As well as experiencing the loss of love in my own life, seeing that everyone suffers, and everyone needs love and how we might all be a different shade of skin, or think differently but we all are able to feel love.
