London-born singer-songwriter Simon Harris grew up in a family of professional musicians and it wasn’t long before he had taught himself to play blues guitar and write songs in his own inimitable jazz, soul style.

Drawing upon the great American songbook, his original material has always featured strong melodies and rich textures that together form his signature sound and groove.

Because of Simon’s unique artistry and musicianship he has always collaborated with the industry’s finest, including singer-songwriters KT Tunstall, Laura Mvula, Lucinda Belle and Joe Cang.

Simon has played at all the major UK festivals (Glastonbury, Secret Garden, Bestival) and London venues such as The Barbican Centre, Ronnie Scott’s and the 606 Club.

Simon’s celebrated band Trio Manouche is widely regarded as the UK’s top gypsy jazz act and has been invited to play at the world’s most prestigious parties for celebrities such as director Guy Ritchie and Hollywood actress Rosamund Pike.
