SHIMEON (Simon Peter Sutherland) was born during the winter of 1973 in Salford. His mother, a Christian singer, and his father, a lay preacher, encouraged Simon to pursue his gifts at an early age within the fields of music, faith and entertainment. His atmospherical childhood joyfully embraced Biblical principles and reverberated with the sounds of everything from Country music to pop, easy listening to folk.
Shimeon pays tribute to great songwriters such as Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. He says "Without such musicians and songwriters, I would never have been remotely interested in either listening to music or composing music".
