Simon formed in Peoria, IL in 1997 and quickly relocated to the college town of Bloomington, IL Since '97 Simon has been led by founder singer-songwriter, Brad Benson who takes his inspiration from British bands such as the Beatles, the Kinks and the Who. Simon has continued to add various textures to its songs over the past 15 years, dance, mod, and Britpop to songs about middle class heros trapped in worlds of their own making. Benson along with bassist Lawrence Horvath and drummer Dave Schuster continue to write, record and perform in downstate Illinois.
You awake to the dream on a purple town night
Oh you want her so badly you hope she knows why
As your feet hit the street feel the beat and the heat and the light.
For all you know all of the stars blink down below
Hear the street corner soul coming to punch through every hole in time.
