About Si

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.
