A native of Palo Alto, California, singer/songwriter Matt Simons' first taste of success came, ironically, in Europe.
Trained in classical and jazz and proficient on a number of instruments, Simons had moved to New York to ply his trade as a pop craftsman. His passionate, piano-led songs were at the heart of his self-released 2012 debut, Pieces, which he marketed online using social media. To Simons' surprise, he'd suddenly gained a small but dedicated following in the Netherlands and, after traveling overseas to play a handful of shows, his music was championed by a prominent television writer. Soon he was a minor celebrity in Holland with an album that had reached number 23 on the Dutch charts. On the strength of his single "With You," he struck a deal with Sony in Europe, focusing his efforts overseas while remaining relatively obscure back in the U.S. With a larger budget than before, Simons wrote and recorded his follow-up album working with various producers in Nashville, Los Angeles, and Holland. Released in 2014, Catch & Release fared even better than his debut, climbing high into several European charts thanks in part to a Dutch house remix of the title track that became a number one hit in Belgium the following year. Simons returned early in 2018 with the buoyant pop single "We Can Do Better," following up later that year with the more laid-back "Amy's Song." ~ Timothy Monger
