The welcome return of our brother and friend Simone Felice! At times, it feels as though Simone has done it all and it’s always a pleasure to have him return to us year after year.
Founding member of internationally acclaimed Catskill Mountain based artists The Felice Brothers and The Duke & The King. Felice Brothers seminal self-titled album remains one of the most influential works of this century’s indie- folk revival and The Duke & The King were perhaps the most magical band we’ve ever worked with.
In 2012 Simone released his first solo album, which The Independent called ‘A taut masterpiece of terrifying, exhilarating American tales.’ A second solo album was released in 2014 and 2015 sees the release of a new live double album ‘From The Violent Banks Of The Kaaterskill’ (feat. The Felice Brothers). This special anthology showcases selected works from a decade of writing, truly capturing Simone’s rare gift as a songsmith, poet and visionary.
More recently Simone has been drawn towards production, working alongside The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes, and more. Now returning to his own work, Simone Felice brings his enormous wealth of experience to bear on his new album ‘The Projector’. The album features Four Tet and Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan.
