It follows two critically acclaimed studio albums, Human Spring
and Pressure in an Empty Space
. The latter was released in April 2016 and recorded in the UK with renowned producer Simon Duffy (Leftfield
, Mr Hudson
, Dirty Vegas
and Missy Elliott
). The album follows Simons during the compounding experiences of the breakdown of a committed relationship whilst dealing with an obscure form of cancer in 2014, which Tone Deaf described as "a stunning and incredibly moving piece of work." Lead single, Coming Down
, debuted at No. 29 in the UK Music Week Pop Charts.
Simons is also the CEO and co-founder of musician social-professional network Vampr.
