Bio

EP OUT NOW! --> http://www.davysimony.com Davy Simony is an alternative folk-roots singer-songwriter hailing from Kuranda in Far North Queensland. With influences that span from Jack Johnson to Angus & Julia Stone and The Beautiful Girls, Simony’s work is defined by his grounded and heartfelt style of songwriting. His live performances are not to be missed. Boasting the powerful energy of a ‘one-man-band,’ Simony takes to guitar, foot percussion and live looping. A true prodigy, Davy began playing music at just eight years old and after three years he was busking on the streets of several nearby towns. He started writing his own material at fifteen, the same year in which he performed for the first time – at a Battle of the Bands, where he led his band to victory. From there his music career has skyrocketed: Simony has held residencies at various venues, performed at private weddings, played festival shows and opened for acts such as Yves Klein Blue, Dallas Frasca and April Maze. “…his combination of intricate guitar work and inspirational songwriting create a most enjoyable atmosphere.” – The Saint Kilda Festival, 2012 For the past two years Davy has been busking, playing regular gigs and creating a buzz within Melbourne’s live music scene. The announcement of his debut solo EP Discover has spread throughout the nation, with his fans highly anticipating its release. The six-track album demonstrates Simony’s diverse and remarkable talents as he weaves clever lyrics through captivating melodies in songs ranging from indie to progressive-rock. Having moved to Melbourne only seven months ago, Simony has already set high standards and gathered a fanbase like no other. With regular gigs and a new EP out, the future looks promising for this young artist.

"your heart...

"your heart is leaking at the seams" - yep, almost broke down at this lyric. What a distinct and beautiful sound this guy has going on, not to mention great songwriting. Look forward to catching him live now.
