Simon Drew is one of Australia’s premier interpreters of the Great American Songbook. His authentic renditions of jazz standards are loved across the globe, and his smooth vocal and trumpet styles hint influences of Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, and Kurt Elling.
Simon’s single goal in any performance is to make sure that the audience feels something that they weren’t expecting to feel. Watch the audience in any of Simon’s performances and you may see laughter, tears, excitement, and every emotion in between.
Simon has wowed audiences all around the world at festivals, in jazz clubs, and on the world’s largest cruise ships. However, Simon’s greatest pride is in his ability to turn jazz-agnostics into jazz lovers with his modern yet authentic style.
Simon will be supported by Ben Knibb on saxophone, Brett Newman drums, Ben Young trombone, Sean Flynn guitar, Paul Cusick keyboard and OJ Newcomb bass.
