Simon James & The Deep River Pilots

Simon has been writing music since his early teens after his father gave him an Epiphone Riviera guitar taken in payment for some unpaid work. Since then he has been in bands for over 25 years playing some of the greatest venues in the UK.

Simon has written music across many genres but now has found his true calling in the UK country/Americana scene where over the last few years he has seen tremendous success. His first single was played on all country radio and TV channels, and his debut album charted in the top 40 country albums on iTunes.

Simon has been building a loyal and solid following after playing the key country festivals and live gigs in the UK. Playing with his band The Deep River Pilots, he draws on over 25 years of playing on some of the UK and Europe’s best stages, bringing songwriting, passion and a full band live experience.
