Who is Dave Simons?

     At 16 years old, Simons began writing music based on his experiences while in high school. He began to write about his friends & family & how they made him feel. Songs like "What Says?" & "Livin' with Love" were written about people who influenced his life & taught him valuable lessons. In his senior year, Simons had the chance to release his first album, "Blueprints," which he'd written while still in high school. 50% of this album's proceeds are donated to charity in Simons' hopes using music as a tool for good. 

     Over a year later, Simons released another album, "Chapter 1 of the Rest of My Life" about his transition from high school to college & his journey to adulthood. Songs like "All You Wanted" express his deepest insecurities about battling with sing & feelings of inadequacy

     Now, Simons is working collaboratively with artist, Catie Moore, to produce a brand new EP featuring Moore's original music.
