60 Seconds With… Davy Simony


Define your genre in five words or less: Acoustic folk-roots.

Where and what time will you be playing at the St Kilda Festival?
I’ll be playing at SugarReef on Friday February 7 at 7pm and also at Fitzrovia at 4pm on February 8.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

The Beautiful Girls, Angus & Julia Stone and Jack Johnson.

What can a punter expect from your live show?

Some captivating tunes with some groovy percussion and funky live loops. Perhaps a little groove on the D-floor. To summarize; a ruddy good time.

What has inspired or influenced your music the most?

Red wine, heartbreaks and savoury crepes.

What makes you happiest about what you’re doing?

Not having to work a ‘real’ job. I’ve been living off my music for over a year now.

Do you have any record releases to date? What are they? Where can I get them?

Yes, I released a 6-track EP (Discover) in 2012. It’s available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
