    Simon is extremely creative and professional. We worked together for my performance character, Barry Badass, to create a theme tune for a short film I'm currently working on. His process was exceptionally speedy and he was pleasure working with throughout the creation time. I will definitely work with Simon again on my next project!

    I'm a theatre producer and director and I was recommended Simon through a colleague for some sound design work. Previously, I had commissioned a sound designer to make a track and was unfortunately not happy about the outcome. I spoke to Simon and I found him very warm and willing to listen. I provided the same brief as I had to the previous sound designer and was exceptionally impressed with his musical skills and attentiveness to what I was looking for. I'm now working with Simon on my theatre production throughout 2021.
