Simon D. James’ musical obsession has paid dividends, as he releases his strongest song yet after its genesis took him from the dizzy and rarefied heights of Mexico City to the unlikely subterranean depths of Leeds. Whilst on a somewhat inexplicable goose-chase to “sell coffee to the Mexicans” in Mexico City, some downtime with friends led to an impromptu jam, from which, after some typically intricate and masterful shaping and honing, came My Everything, the pinnacle of Simon’s output so far. Recorded on 2” tape at Greenmount Studios, one of Leeds’ best kept secrets located in the catacombs of a church, My Everything is a spectral, hymn-like track which remains overwhelmingly powerful, even after repeated listens.



Born from musical stock (his dad, Brendon, recorded 70s hit, Gimme Some), Simon D. James has sought inspiration for his music whilst travelling the world, whether it be spending time with the Babas of India or the shaman of Latin America. These have led him to working on a number environmental and social projects, from street children to refugees, and now sees him working with young offenders to turn around their lives. This spiritual nature has certainly found its way into his music, with his tracks packed with emotion and yearning, hopeful yet reflecting all aspects of the human condition.



Likened to The National and Broken Social Scene, Simon D. James’ individual interpretation of what the term “indie singer-songwriter” can mean, re-invents it as a powerful force which transcends scenes and trends and reinforces his claims as one of the most alluring musicians around.
