Mick Simpson is the unsung hero of the music world. Within the industry he is widely acclaimed however in the outside world not a lot is known about his work.

Mick worked as a session guitarist for Elkie Brooks who asked him to tour in her band Vinegar Joe.   In the 1990’s he worked with John Parr of ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ fame, featuring on his album ‘Man with a vision’. A number of tracks from his album have featured on smash hit films such as ‘running man’ with Arnold Schwarzenegger and ‘Three Men and a Baby’ with Tom Selleck.

Mick then toured with ex Rolling Stone Bill Wyman’s ‘Rhythm Kings’ and in 2004 his original track ‘Fathers Son’ won the International Song Writers Award sponsored by ‘The Brit Awards’. The track received TV and Radio coverage along with Mick’s track ‘Looking through my Eyes’ which was released to raise money and awareness of Autism which is a cause close to his heart.
