The Disciples disbanded in time but not before releasing a mini-album (favourably reviewed by Q), and leaving a lasting impression on live audiences. Alongside his long and varied band career, Simon has also been a highly sought-after session player, collaborating with numerous high-profile musicians for both studio work and live performances. His move to the Isle of Man in 2008 and subsequent involvement with its vibrant music scene led to a new a chapter in Simon's journey and in 2011 saw the release of his first solo album, ThirtySix. The perfect showcase for Simon's versatility and profound musical understanding, ThirtySix harnesses a wide variety of guitar styles while being grounded in a deep-seated love of Rock and Blues. In the year of its release, he was nominated for a prestigious British Blues Award. He moved to Valencia, Spain in 2013 to complete work on his next album, 'The Knife', which will be released on October 31st, 2014. This record reflects his increasing love of acoustic music from both sides of the Atlantic. May 2014 saw Simon marry musician Suzy Starlite and together set up Supertone Records, a label dedicated to "manage, produce and sign quirky, beautifully recorded artists from everywhere and nowhere". Whether writing, producing, recording or playing, Simon's appetite for musical exploration remains unabated and he intends to keep on running for a long time to come.
