Frequently Asked Questions

"I downloaded [History]...well worth it....loved the song on Phil n Simon the other night so decided to play it too." - Jenifer Connell - 98.9 North West FM

Upcoming Gigs

See Simon and band perform live at these venues:

Are you playing any live shows?

Yes we are.
I lost a couple of band members who played on the original recordings so it's taken a while to get a new band sorted out with everyone up to speed. And in fact the new band is not only sounding brilliant but have really improved the songs' arrangements too! First full band gig is at the Tattershall Castle - boat moored on the Thames opposite the London Eye.
Keep an eye on the gigs page for latest gig info.
Better still follow us on Twitter for regular updates!

When are you releasing more material and when can I buy the album?

You can buy and stream History on most download/streaming services and we're still in the process of looking at options for how to release more material. The new band has improved the sound of the songs live and so any new release should ideally include those guys on the recording as well.
Check out the blog for fairly constant up to date info about what's going on (or follow us on Twitter!)

Where did you shoot the video for History?

The beach shots were done down in Kent, the instrument shots were mostly done in the studio where it was recorded (The Smoke House / Intimate Studios in Wapping) and the night shots were done in Epping Forest. The three clocks were shot in time lapse - one is of course Big Ben, one is the clock on top of Maple Lodge in the Hamptons, Worcester Park and the white clock that flies about is my kitchen clock.

Are you planning to record another album?

I've got a heap of new material which I'm slowly introducing to the band and testing out live from time to time. We've got to get the first lot out first though!

Have you tried X Factor or The Voice?

No, that's not the best way to showcase my work. Instead check out the video for History or else come and see us live!

How can I help to make sure you get to release more music?

Spread the word. Contact music media and radio stations to and ask them to play History and anything else I might have released. Anything that means more people hearing it increases the chances of people downloading it and more people hearing about it.

Would you produce someone else's music for them? 

One of my first jobs was running a small recording studio where I engineered and produced many bands and artists. I'd be quite happy to do some of that again.

Have you thought of crowdfunding an album?

Yes it's a thought but there are other opportunities available before I take that route.

Do you do any acting?

Back in Australia I did a few student films and some TV extra work in Melbourne based shows like Neighbours. I'd be happy to do a bit more again. My Dad was an actor and my sister is a regular in background character in 'Wentworth' so there's a bit of it in the family.
