“Psychedelic Hendrix-channelling jams and hooky, distorted blues rock, soul,
roots, wah-wah guitars and freaky shit”
CLASSIC ROCK
“Successfully raises the ghosts of bands such as Peter Green’s Fleetwood
Mac and all the fun and restless innovation of that era – in a good way”
GUITARIST
“If you enjoy your blues with a psychedelic approach, then this is most

JD Simo is a Nashville-based guitarist and vocalist who wants his listeners to know that what matters
to him first and foremost is that music should be honest. He offers this in spades on his debut solo
album, ‘Off At 11’, a psychedelic, free-flowing, dynamic kaleidoscope of sound, energy and vibe that
incorporates elements of Acid rock, traditional blues, folk, soul and free form jazz around JD’s
improvisational skills.
With influences as diverse as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Captain Beefheart, Miles Davis and the
Allman Brothers, to blues guitarists such as Lightnin’ Hopkins and BB King, this young artist is
taking the listener on a musical journey using LOVE as the guideposts. JD explains: “There is an
underlying theme of love that permeates the album, outward love but also inner and self love.
Everything is so heavy these days, but I just want to point out some joy, love and deep passion;
in this world, we all share that spirit.”
JD previously fronted the psychedelic soul group SIMO and gained a solid following from touring
with acts such as Blackberry Smoke, The Gregg Allman band, Warren Haynes, Tommy Emmanuel
and more. The band released two albums for the Mascot Label Group that received praise from US
publications such as No Depression, Rolling Stone and various specialist guitar magazines.
“The experience with SIMO set the stage and pushed me forward to record ‘Off At 11’. I loved the
process, the playing and the struggle to make this record a reality. I hope everyone feels the love,”
he concludes.
