Brief Music Bio
Simon Spire’s songs traverse the ground between upbeat alt-pop and singer-songwriter introspection, investigating individual and collective transformation. A three-time award-winner in the USA Songwriting Competition, Spire has been featured on MTV, NPR, NBC, AOL, Voice of America, and radio stations throughout the U.S., while also featuring in the Top 20 airplay charts in New Zealand. Drawing comparisons to Sufjan Stevens, John Mayer, and Ryan Adams, Spire has been described as “a rising star with an extraordinary talent for forthright and introspective songcraft.”
