Artist DescriptionSimon Townshend is straight from the lineage of one of British music’s most famous families. Writing, recording and performing since the age of nine, Simon balances his solo career with guitar duties alongside elder brother Pete Townshend in The Who. Simon has also performed with numerous other acts including Pearl Jam, Dave Grohl and Jeff Beck to name a few. For 2012, he’s back with his best and most impactful solo recording to date, Looking Out Looking In, which London's Daily Express rated 5/5, calling it "utterly compelling" and naming Simon "a genuinely original talent."
His live shows have been variously described as "supercharged" (New York Times), "irresistible" (Washington Post) and a "catharsis" (Los Angeles Times). Billboard labeled him "impressive" and Goldmine affirmed, “truly enjoyable listening.” In short, as London’s Gig Guide said, “you would be a fool to miss him.”
