Singer-songwriter, guitar player and music producer. British Blues Award Nominee 2011, Simon has been a full time musician for 40 years. He is hugely experienced in production and recording, specialising in vintage techniques and along with his wife, runs one of the finest residential, analog, vintage recording studios in Europe based in Valencia.

Simon has played session guitar on countless albums and live shows and it was at these sessions (mainly in the 70's) that he learnt the old school techniques that that keeps him very much in demand.

Always keen to keep up to date with the technical aspects of sound recording he has been a member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) since 1988.

Always writing and recorded his own work he landed a major recording contract with Polydor in the late 80's and was nominated for a British Blues Award in 2011 on the back of his first solo album ThirtySix.

He moved to Valencia, Spain in 2013 to complete work on his second solo album, The Knife, which was released on October 31st, 2014. This record reflects his increasing love of acoustic music from both sides of the Atlantic.

In November of that year, Simon and his musician wife Suzy, set up Supertone Studio, a world class residential recording facility in the mountains close to Valencia centered around a Trident 40 channel analog console. This both serves their needs as artists and producers but also has limited availability for selected commercial clients.

Since then they have recorded and and number of world class artists.

Whether writing, producing, recording or playing, Simon's appetite for musical exploration remains unabated and he is currently working with Suzy on their joint album project for release in 2016.
