ABOUT

Mick Simpson is the unsung hero of the music world. Within the industry he is widely acclaimed, however in the outside world not a lot is known about his work. In the early 1980's Mick worked as a session guitarist and was spotted by Elkie Brooks who asked him to tour in her band. BBC Radio One's Tommy Vance spoke to Mick backstage after a gig and as a result he played some of Mick's Instrumental tracks on his Friday Night Rock Show.
In the mid 1990's Mick worked with John Parr of 'St Elmo's Fire' fame, featuring on his album 'Man With A Vision'. A number of tracks from his album have featured on smash hit films, such as 'Running Man' with Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Three Men And A Baby' with Tom Selleck. Mick then toured with ex Rolling Stone Bill Wyman's 'Rhythm Kings' and in 2004 his original track 'A Father's Son' won the International Songwriters Award sponsored by the Brits Trust. The track received major TV and Radio airplay along with Mick's song 'Looking Through My Eyes' which was released to raise money and awareness of Autism, which is a cause close to his heart. In June 2005 Mick guested at the 80th birthday of blues legend BB King and his blues bar in New York. He has also played alongside other blues/rock guitar heroes such as Gary Moore and Snowy White.
Mick is currently in the studio working with Producer Andy Littlewood on new material. Watch out for Mick's forthcoming album 'Hard Road, which is due for release around mid November. Mick's new EP 'Walking Back To India' is out now on CD and MP3 download, for more information please visit www.micksimpson
