Current release | ‘Lullaby From The Soul’

Simon Birt

Singer, Guitarist and Songwriter

I’ve been writing songs since I was 11 yrs old. I loved music growing up and listened to a wide selection. I decided pretty quickly that I liked songs with strong lyrics and vocals, such as, Country and Rock’n’Roll. I also loved the guitar. To me, it was the perfect instrument for accompanying a songwriter. I realised in my teens that I was probably not destined for a career as an artist for lots of reasons. No matter what I’ve done in my life, though, my music has always been with me. I’ve never been too far from a guitar.

In the last few years, with the changes in music publishing and the opportunities to develop an audience for one’s music, I’ve developed my collection of songs into albums. I am currently working on my fourth. But, I have three already completed and decided to start releasing my music. My first two albums were released early this year, with ‘Halcyon Days’ being the first. This is because it was the first proper collection of my songs from the period 2015 to 2019. The second album, ‘From Little Acorns’, was released very quickly afterwards, signifying the link to the first in terms of period: the songs are also from 2015 to 2019, albeit they are later.

My third album was released in July and features some new songs from 2020 and 2021. There are some new themes on this album to do with faith and the spirit, and I tried to create some gospel sound to illustrate this.

I am now working on my fourth album, which is currently untitled, and will be available towards the end of the year, hopefully, as the songs on it really come from this year and are currently being recorded in the studio.
