About Si

Singer
Bournemouth

Verified profile
Simon is a singer/songwriter who has toured Europe & the UK with his mix of original songs, plus country, rock'n'roll, blues & soul covers.

Si has been a professional singer/songwriter for the last ten years, touring throughout Europe and the UK, and he has supported the likes of Seth Lakeman, Martin Harley and Frank Turner. Si writes original music with a blues, rock and country sound. His sets include his original songs, mixed with covers of popular blues, soul, jazz, rock and country songs. There's something for everyone! Si uses vocal and guitar pedals to create a huge sound for a solo performer. Harmonica and percussion also feature. He has all his own equipment, and is therefore completely self sufficient. This gives an option to plug into a venue's sound PA system, or he can use his own. He is also a qualified sound engineer. Si also plays guitar and sings as part of a duo called The Belle Adventure with his wife, Kate.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I’m flexible and here to help, just let me know what you need.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Of course. I’ll make sure there’s music whenever I’m not playing and if you need a DJ service after my sets then I can provide that too for an extra £10p. Just let me know in advance.

How much time do you need to set up?

I only need 45 minutes but I like to set up a bit earlier if possible.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I am happy for you to choose from my repertoire but make sure to let me know it you have a theme so I can prepare accordingly.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I do. I just need a power out let.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I’m happy to talk about requests and will include special songs, within reason, just give me plenty of notice.

Recommend catching him if you can. The man has a vision for the future, and it’s well worth a listen.

Private C, 3 years ago

What a fantastic evening. The music was just great and really set the tone.
