Simon Scardanelli

Our February Sunday in the Bar features Indie-folk-rock maverick Simon Scardanelli.

Simon's fourth solo album Make Us Happy saw a return to his roots with a ramshackle ensemble of accordions, fiddle, cajon, clarinet, soprano sax, guitars, mandolin and Turkish cumbus in eclectic and unusual arrangements perfectly suited to his quirky original songwriting. He's currently writing and recording his next album in his studio in Brittany, France. Wood Amongst The Trees will be released in the Spring of 2019.

Simon Scardanelli enjoyed chart success in the late eighties with Anglo-Canadian duo Big Bam Boo, scoring a top 40 hit in the USA & Canada in March 1989 with Shooting From My Heart, prompting the duo to re- locate to New York from London. Following the demise of the band in 1991 Simon remained in New York, turned his back on the popular music scene and scraped a living in the underbelly of New York’s Lower East Side - including a stint working as a liquor runner at the infamous Save The Robots after-hours club.

A charismatic and engaging solo performer, Simon's shows are peppered with wry anecdotes and dry, self-deprecating humour – he is able to look back on a long and varied career with an ironic appreciation of its highs and lows.

“...a beguiling range of powerful sonorities and richly textured vocal styles.”

“If you like intriguing and experimental songwriting, charismatic performing and singing that works in some of the areas explored by the likes of Scott Walker, Vini Reilly, Léo Ferré, Jacques Brel and Georges Brassens, you'll be inspired to discover Simon Scardanelli's work.”
