Simon Coverdale

Simon is a Totnes based singer songwriter originally from Birmingham whose finger-style guitar based songs feature tunes rooted more across the Atlantic than in traditional folk but whose unique lyrics are all his own.

"When the sound man at the Islington Hope & Anchor described my band as ‘the worst I have ever heard’ back in ‘82, I pretty well gave up on his early dreams of stardom, sold my guitars to go travelling and pointed my sights elsewhere. I managed another decade as a lost boy before finally settling down and raising children and an IT career in sunny Birmingham.
It wasn’t until in my early 50’s that I picked up an acoustic guitar and started to write the songs I had always wanted to write. These are lyrical songs over a sweet minimal guitar, with a bit of the story style of Americana but not quite like anyone else."
