Simon is a tall, English musician and writer who has an enviable collection of admirable hats. He resides in the fair city of Norwich.
Since 2016 he has been playing gigs in and around Norwich, Norfolk and beyond, including in February 2019 at the Waterfront in Norwich, where he supported Sam Lewis from Nashville. Summer 2019 saw him play ButeFest in Scotland along with the likes of Big Country and Space.
Simon has now released 10 albums of thoughtful and eclectic material which encompasses folk sensibilities mixed with prog, chamber pop and rock. He usually writes and records as part of the One Month Album project.
In 2020 he released two albums; ‘Placenames’ was written and recorded in March 2020 at the height of the Pandemic lockdown and many of the songs reflect the isolation felt by many during this time. The epic song ‘Blubberhouses’ has a critically acclaimed video which can be viewed on the Breadknife Music YouTube channel. ‘Black Paintings’ was released in September 2020 and includes songs influenced by the painter Goya’s famous works.
May 2022 saw the release of his latest album ‘The Premonition Bureau’.
