But who is Simon I???
One day, Simon I (it is pronounced SimonThe First), a respectable fellow from a
North-American town called Drummondville, decided to launch a side project that would
run parallel to the respectable functions that are keeping him busy on a daily basis.
So he started writing songs in the tongue of Shakespeare, Dylan, and McDonald.
Tongues have always been a passion for him. And Simon I knows music. Rain or shine, his head is always full of new melodies.Simon I left his land to go to New Amsterdam, where he got down to work with two gentlemen, Gus van Go and Werner F. Simon I likes true craftsmanship. He tries to play every instrument or just about.
After spending a few weeks in exile to record last winter, Simon I and his acolytes completed a ten-track album that sounds
like a ton of bricks. Each song has its own melodic depth, its own character. You’ll find Simon I to be a great melody-maker.
And where did he find this wonderful style? The secret lies in Drummondville.
