  1. Review by Michael Palmer / Born Music

    Simon is utterly brilliant. Great feel, great time, an amazing selection of drums, great remote recording gear, and a pleasure to work with.

    Very professional and fun to work with.

    Be it rock, funk, jazz, pop... Simon has it covered.

    He always plays for the song and finds that perfect groove that makes it all come together.

    Highly recommended.
