Over the last 15yrs, singer/songwriter Simon Imrei 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.

 
 

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 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.

In mid 2019, Simon will release a new EP, the follow up to his two-part 2018 album The Sum of Scenes, which featured the likes of Ben Franz (The Waifs), Gretta Ray, Josh Bridges (Mustered Courage), Brooke Russell, & more.
