Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Simon Paparo. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the atmosphere of his music.
Simon Paparo’s music is very intimate and refined, a folk-rock capable of warming the soul.
The effect used for the vocals immediately reminded me of Chris Martin of Cold Play.
Try to imagine The Lumineers mixed with Cold Play and you will get more or less the idea of Simon’s music.
A nice mix, original, and able to distinguish immediately the songs of this talented artist.
A warm, strong voice capable of telling stories.
The production of these tunes is very nice, a mix that has an enviable balance and a choice of sounds that takes into account every little nuance.
I really liked the chord progression that with continuous variations and refined harmonic intuitions can entertain the listener from the first to the last second.
Pirates is Simon Paparo’s Single Out Now!
Beautiful voice for a mature artist!
Perth born singer/songwriter Simon Paparo has been unleashing his beautiful music on the Australian music scene relentlessly. From and early age Simon has been carving his own songs and covering others with a fresh energy and raw passion that secures his audience their seats.
With shades of such luminaries as Dustin Tebutt and Boy & Bear, Simon is emerging as the new Australian voice since his live debut in Sydney. Now residing in Melbourne his musical journey continues with new tracks ready for his latest audience.
Paparo’s passion for acoustic guitar is undeniable although his talents stretch to include guitar, harmonica, mandolin, bass, keys and drums. With a musical style that teeters between alternative folk, blues, country and pop, his influences include Lisa Mitchell, Vance Joy, Boy & Bear and City and Colour.
Simon Paparo’s latest single ‘Pirates’ is a song about introspection. It is a gentle reminder to continue looking inwards to nourish one’s soul so as to tread with love.
This song is the last single to be released before the upcoming LP, to be launched later this year.
