“Folk/Americana sensibility, 70s grooves, layered bluesy guitars, harmonies & honest storytelling..." 

Singer/songwriter Simon Imrei returns with a brand-new single, Stand Still, ahead of a new EP later in the year. Stand Still is a melancholy Americana daydream about heading down the coast with someone, living out of an old suitcase and sharing the quiet in amongst the craziness of life's day to day. It’s a subtle acoustic folk-pop tune, tinged with vintage tape tones and the deft finishing touches of guitarist/pedal-steel gun for hire Matt Dixon (Emilee South, James Kenyon)

Over the last 15yrs, Simon has kept a steady roster of live shows across the country, bringing his mix of blues/roots and folk-inspired songs to life onstage, blending looped beats with layered riffs, harmonies and honest storytelling. Previously a touring band member for the likes of The Basics, Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes and A Whale Called Phoenix, Simon has more recently passionately focused his energy on his own material, releasing two EP's and two full-length albums including 2018’s The Sum of Scenes.

Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, Simon spent his childhood riding in the back of cars along tree-lined roads and through quiet towns listening to the catchy choruses and the pop sensibility of 80s/90s radio. At home, it was his parents’ record collection which paired the storytelling of Paul Simon and James Taylor with the bluesy guitar playing of Jimi Hendrix and Santana. It wasn’t until a family Christmas watching his uncle play Buddy Rich rudiments on his drumkit, that Simon discovered his love for rhythm. This underlying aspect of movement and groove has underpinned his guitar playing and songwriting ever since. 

Stand Still is available now to buy/stream online via all major platforms.
