VOTED BEST YOUNG AXE-SLINGER 2011 – Nashville Scene’s Critics Poll
“Simo’s new self-titled full-length such a glorious piece of rocking blues in the tradition of Hendrix, Michael Bloomfield and other guitar-crazy heroes of the distant past.” – (Edd Hurt – Nashville Scene)
“Old School to the max and playing vintage guitars onstage!! JD is one of the best out there right now…” – (Joe Bonamassa)
“we dig him even more in his power trio, called SIMO, where he summons the spirits of Hendrix, The Who and vintage Cream, wailing from his Marshall-style full stack like he’s onstage at the Monterey Pop Festival.” – (Jack Silverman, Nashville Scene)
This is what the Black Keys and Joe Bonamassa are oohing and aahing about. Born out of a two hour improvisational jam in early 2011, SIMO, is the resurrection of Classic Psychedelic Blue Rock. Guitar God JD Simo, Electric Bass Guitarist Frank Swart (Norah Jones, Morphine) and virtuoso jazz drummer Adam Abrashoff are SIMO!
SIMO’s self titled debut album is available now at www.simotheband.com or through iTunes and other fine digital music retailers.
