OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Lee Simeone is a British self-taught multi-instrumentalist who has mastered his own unique style since he first arrived on the music scene with his debut album ‘The Dream Weaver’ in 2009. Signed to Le Coq Musique, the record label of Adam & The Ants, Kevin Mooney and Renegade Soundwave frontman Gary Asquith, the album received rave reviews.
“Lee Simeone is a wunderkind multi-instrumentalist who specialises in dark wave electro. Described as 'like Mozart with synths' one track from his debut album was recently used as an installation at the Tate Modern gallery” Rough Trade
The new album, ‘Before The Internet’, sees Simeone going back to basics using instruments from the 70s and he wishes, if anything, that it will inspire his listeners to step away from their screens, put their phones down, and just listen.
‘I like to think of ‘Before the Internet’ as a celebration of all things pre-internet as I dial up some white noise on this JP-4 synth of ‘70s vintage. These sounds are to me like random visits from old friends, remember those? I also miss getting lost! Yes, I'm still doing what I love and nothing has changed since that garbage modem whisked us off into another dimension.
The album has turned out rather cinematic and I hope it helps the listener get spaced out!
I put 'Before the Internet' together mainly to have the ability to start fresh, everything is so well-documented now, isn't it?! And I just wanted to wipe the slate clean. To make a point I have deleted all previous releases. Anyone attending my performances might want to leave their phone at home
