Simon Joyner is one of the best and most important singer-songwriters of his generation. Since the early 90s he's been active releasing records with great American labels like Woodsist, Jagjaguwar, Shrimper and Team Love. He can count people like Beck, Bright Eyes, Kevin Morby, John Peel (rip), or here in Germany Gisbert zu Knyphausen among his fans.
