Posted by FistFight on April 11, 2013 Biographies | Tags: , , , | No comments

simon-thumbSimon started drumming at the beginning of high school on a whim, and quickly got dropped in the deep end by his local church and other music projects. “All this has lead me into the wonderland that is music, and I have never looked back.” He has been involved in bands of varying genres from Post-Hardcore to AfroPop and the Blues. At one point he was involved with 7 bands at the same time.

He is mainly self-taught, though spent a year studying drums at COPA Pretoria, and has also been mentored by Gideon Meintjies and  Wynand van der Walt.

“I believe in the performance of music, not just playing it, and as the drummer for FistFight, I canʼt wait to jam out all the different styles and have an awesome time doing it.”

Musical interests: MuteMath, Dave Matthews Band, House of Heroes, Relient K, The Youngblood Brass Band… the list goes on and on.
