Simon grew up in the south-west region of WA. After obtaining a music degree in Perth and a trip to Brazil to further his studies, he joined the Sydney Latin guitar duo – Urban Gypsies. The duo busked and gigged for two years and recorded the album ‘Sauvage’ in 2003, which was released through MGM and promoted through SBS and the ABC. The album also received a 3/4 star review in The Sydney Morning Herald. In 2004 he toured solo around Australia and travelled to Aceh to help out with tsunami relief. Returning to Melbourne in 2005, and having written songs inspired by his travels, he was keen to get gigging with a drummer and together they recorded - 'Tuesday Night At The Espy', a live album capturing a performance at the iconic 'Esplanade Hotel', which was released through MGM Distribution in September 2006, "Quite literally amazing...should be listened to obsessively" THE FREMANTLE HERALD.
