Simon Andersson has mastered the art of blurring international lines with his music. Becoming the first Swedish artist to win an award in the US for "Best Country Song of the Year" is just one of the many accomplishments Simon has checked off of his list of achievements. In a few short years, Simon has started to make a name for himself and his craft world wide
Jan woods - a Nashville radio promoter with more than 20 years in the music business - says "Simon Andersson is a triple threat!" Meaning he's great looking, an amazing songwriter and an fantastic artist. She also said after watching Simon perform: "This kid truly has what it takes to become one of the biggest artist on the market today!"
Simon's music is influenced by everything between The Eagles, Bon Jovi & Coldplay and you get an awesome combination of rock, country and pop. Mike Thomas, Program Director for KFAV says, “It’s proof that good country music doesn’t have to come from this side of the pond.”
On the heels of his second single released in the U.S., Simon was a member of an elite group of artists that were chosen to be a part of Country Music Association’s Fan Fair X. The CMA Music Festival sold out seven months in advance prompting a record-setting daily attendance of 87,680 fans and Andersson was able to meet fans from all over the world.
Simon’s love for music developed at a young age and was heavily influenced by his Swedish upbringing, a country with great music traditions. Andersson has honed his skills for various instruments including drums and piano. However, Simon had to be true to himself and his love for the limelight and after years of performing with different bands, Simon stepped out on his own and has been blazing the trail ever since.
His music has seen international success with airplay in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and Sweden to name a few. The latest single Desperate Man being no exception. It’s been very well received by the public and critics alike and landed as #1 on the British Unsigned Pop Chart. Whether Simon is in Sweden, America or somewhere in between, you can be sure he’s on a stage giving everything he has to his fans.
