As a solo artist, Simone Felice brings even more poetic Americana sincerity than his highly acclaimed work with The Felice Brothers and the Duke and the King. Not since Damien Rice has a songwriter pierced the heart of the listener like this – honestly, softly and with an edge. Felice’s songwriting and vocal originality is compared to that of Bob Dylan, Neil Young and James Taylor. He’s that good.
After The Felice Brothers disbanded rather publicly in an open letter from Simone, and after the “tragedy, sadness, and regeneration” he referred to in this letter, the creative fervor is stronger than ever. This year he releases his self-titled debut album on Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst’s label, Team Love. Hitting stores April 3, Simone Felice is a rootsy, bluesy and raw album that presents us with ten new timeless American tales. He recorded it in an old bard, an old church and an abandoned high school.
