Music by Simon Edward

Music. Firstly, the music I compose is an alternative blend of post-rock Dream Pop, jazz and funk.

“Shade of Red” is a song inspired by my love of music, the colour red and a personal battle with depression.

This song is about Music, Life, Love and Being. Written and recorded at home between July 2014 and November 2016. Credits, and with much love to: –

  • Stuart Martin on Drums and percussion;
  • Helen on Piano;
  • Simon Edward on Bass (and other things).

Inspired by the Merry-go-round of life, which can drive us all to distraction: –

“When life becomes complicated ~ find joy in each other and the gift of laughter.”

“Rain” was inspired by the sound of wind chimes. I was at a very low point in late 2012. It’s difficult to describe what happened for me to be feeling the way I did at this time. It was probably lots of things.

‘Rain’ was my way of doing something creative to help draw a line under those feelings.

I wrote the lyrics to “Breaking News” whilst on holiday with my family in Spain. The song is about 24-hour broadcast media and global events.

I recorded, mixed and mastered the song at home, which features licensed samples and loops: –


  • ‘Chill Drum’ 65 BPM by;
  • ‘Time+Space Distribution’: Ambient skyline;
  • and (various newsreels).

I arranged and produced “Downtown Bleecker” after hearing the British Saxophonist Simon D’souza play on some of his own loops, which he kindly gave permission for me to use.

Sadly, I didn’t get to meet Simon, who passed away in May 2014. This composition is dedicated to him. The title comes from a journey I made to Bleecker Street subway station in New York City, March 2000. You can read more here  Downtown | Music | logo | Established 2014
