UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, following the release of his his debut full length album ‘Mono'. His second album is due for release in November following funding support from Help Musicians UK.
In recent years, Simeon has performed & toured across the UK and Europe, including supporting S. Carey, Sebastian Plano & Loscil, also appearing at Latitude Festival (UK), Q3Ambientfest (DE), FAN Festival (PT) and a range of concerts, shows and live music events.
Regularly played on BBC Radio 3 alongside BBC 6Music, BBC World Service & BBC Introducing, KEXP and NeoFM, his music has been streamed 10 million times across platforms. He also founded and curates Brudenell Piano Sessions; an intimate and varied concert series in Leeds, highlighting the diverse music being composed and performed on the piano.
In a busy, scrolling-fuelled world, Simeon's calm, introspective piano-based instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness, beauty and meaning as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each tender, intimate performance.
