A graduate of Concordia University’s Integrative Music Arts program, Simon has been playing in blues, rock, country and roots bands across Canada for 30 years. He has appeared on numerous recordings as a session guitar player and producer. Simon began developing his skills as a songwriter eight years ago in the wake of a life-altering accident.
In 2014, his duet project, Stanton Paradis, released Good Road Home, a CD of original acoustic material. In 2015, Simon recorded Mouthful of Stars, a debut full-band CD of original music written by Simon and his wife, Kara Stanley.
The fall of 2018 marked the recording of his third CD, featuring new original material from Simon and Kara as well as collaborations with other writers. Grooves and Ruts is available now.
