Simon D James - singer songwriter based in Brighton, United Kingdom


The release is a follow up to 2018's EP, which included previously released singles 'Dearest Lovely World' and 'In the Field' both which have received National Radio play on BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio as well as receiving many amazing review from different press.

Hard to pigeon-hole, this Simon sits and sings somewhere in the Alt Folk / Indie world. You can hear the influence of classic songwriter such as Bowie and Cobain and although full of sonic surprises he has been compared to contemporariness such as: The Decemberists, Vance Joy, Cosmo Sheldrake and Everything Everything.

Simon Started to write music at the age of 16 and has continued ever since. Three tracks on 'Days of Heaven' were recorded and produced by Ben Hampson, who Simon was in a band with as a teenager and it has always been a dream of Simon to work with Ben again. 'Written By Rules' & 'Fooled By You' were recorded at GreenMount Studios where Simon recorded his first EP.

Simon has busked his way around the world and has spent the last years playing music in the Brighton music scene where he started the band that recorded this EP.
