Sam Simon is &around. The project was influenced by a recent trip around the world.
&around was conceived on a laptop, a vocoder toy and an iPhone across Bali, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Vietnam over the past 6 months. Sketching song ideas in hostel rooms, on boat trips between islands, long bus journeys and airport waiting rooms, he developed his vocoder style vocals by singing into a toy he found on the street in Bangkok, and travelled with it singing into his iPhone. This developed into the sound that is &around and after studio sessions all over the world he's ready to share his music.
