Bio ~ New Music:
Writing new music in both song and instrumental form, Simon has recorded more than 20 compositions at home. His first digital ‘extended play’ (EP) release ‘Midnight Sun’, is now available to download on Bandcamp.com.
The songs are inspired by an eclectic range of influences, rooted in Brit-funk, Jazz, post-rock Dream Pop, Ambient and Electronic music.
“This EP is a realisation of all I’ve learnt so far about writing, recording and producing my own songs; and without the help of one or two friends, it wouldn’t have been possible”.
Bio ~ Quote:
“Tone down, but don’t turn down the real you. Turn up the volume. Use your talent to infinity and beyond. You will inspire others to do the same.”
