Simon Imrei

Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, Simon spent his childhood riding in cars along tree-lined roads and through quiet towns listening to the catchy choruses and the pop sensibility of 80s radio. At home, it was his parents’ record collection which paired the storytelling songs of Paul Simon and James Taylor with the bluesy guitar playing of Jimi Hendrix and Santana. It wasn’t until a family Christmas watching his uncle play Buddy Rich rudiments on his drumkit that Simon discovered his love for rhythm. This underlying aspect of groove has underpinned his guitar playing and songwriting ever since.
