Bio

The Family Simpson is an unsigned independent 29 year old singer / songwriter based in Aberdeen, Scotland. Influenced by postcard moments he works hard to create brief forays examining emotions and situations from a variety of viewpoints. He has been writing and recording his own material for over ten years. He began playing the live circuit in early 2002 and gigged regularly until the birth of his daughter in 2004, including a showcase as a finalist in the Daily Record’s 192 Big Break Acoustic competition (2003) and a number of appearances at The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen. At the moment he records, remixes and releases via the Internet.

His music could be described as pop askew. While acoustic singer / songwriters are be nothing new he has mixed in elements of dance, rock, blues and world music, capping it with his own trademark random "predictably unpredictable" moments. He uses his music as an excuse to explore genres and a license to experiment.

His tracks have appeared on an Ouzel Records (IT) release alongside June Of ’44 as well as various fanzine compilations. He appeared on Unknown Public’s Bloody Amateurs box set (2002) after Mark Russell of BBC Radio 3’s Mixing It programme described his song writing style as "The UK’s answer to Beck". An instrumental track has appeared in an Italian surfing video (2004).

He has released six CDs on his own CDR label, selling them from his guitar case at gigs as well as his website. A number of tracks from each of these CDRs have been played on Scottish indie stations, US college/pirate stations, Swiss, American & Czech podcasts and have been favourably reviewed by fanzines and online music sites.
