Simon is an artist who is not afraid of color. His soft touch with the piano contrasts with the more wild side of his nature exhibited through his guitar playing. His repertoire ranging from traditional jazz pieces such as "I've got you under my skin" to the early Cole Porter standard "You're so easy to love". Some other songs have more contemporary rhythmic motifs and instrumentation.
Simon's use of traditional instruments and piano with the electric guitar and synthesizers is compelling. There are also some very strong bluesy overtones and suggestions of a classical influence.
When elegant, classical and easy listening music is what you want for the early, more formal part of your day as your loved ones meet and greet as they wait for the bride, and, music that is vibrant and lively to celebrate with, later on in the evening, then go no further - you're in the right place.
