simon widdowson Short Info

Simon Widdowson has been making music and performing in Europe and America for the better part of the last 25 years. From his roots in Northern England and widespread in his travels, his new self titled album documents the best of the last 15 years with songs written and recorded in and around Santa Fe New Mexico, Portland Oregon, Cork Ireland and Lyon France.

"Widdowson isn't just playing up to the journeyman artist stereotype, behind the casual melodies smart arrangements and typical British gift for irony there's a palpable restlessness to this guy and his songs" Dave Kirby, Colorado Daily

"Widdowson is a superior songwriter whose intelligent social and political commentary is never preachy because it's usually grounded in a personal context. Musically his adept mingling of rock and roll, folk elements and catchy pop hooks result in tunes remarkable for their depth and scope" Rick Mason, Minneapolis Star tribune

"British transplant Simon Widdowson is a prolific, socially conscious songwriter who wears his heart on his sleeve and whose nimble phrasing recalls both Graham Parker and Van Morrison" Jim Walsh, Billboard Magazine
