Stan Simon began writing songs at an early age in Toronto, Ontario crafting poignant melodies on a broken classical guitar from his father. Largely influenced by vintage folk and country records, Simon delivers earnest lyrics, sung with vocal prowess, sharp harmonica, and a rustic acoustic sound that resonates through your body. Two records later, countless gigs, and opportunities to share the stage with the likes of Chuck Prophet, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, and Julia Jacklin, this troubadour finds himself looking inwards to write his next musical chapter.
In the early 2000s, Simon traveled to Poland to find out what happened to his family after the Holocaust. On this journey, he developed a love for folk music and incorporated Jewish and Polish folk music into his unique sound. Since, Simon has released three albums and continues to tell meaningful stories through his music.
