 Welcome!  

-  A BRIEF HISTORY OF -

I fell into this music/songwriting thing later in life. At 31 years of age to be precise. I'd moved back to Australia after 12 years overseas sailing boats, building bakeries and all sorts of other wonderful adventures. 

Shortly after picking up a guitar & beginning to write songs, I 'got my start' - with an invite to perform as part of the West Coast Blues & Roots Festival in Western Australia. The rest from there, as they say, is history....

Five albums later & having been fortunate enough to perform in Australia, Europe, Asia & North America to wonderful audiences & playing everything from festival bills, to a sinking ship, to bars, barns, house concerts, community halls, art galleries and everything in between, this 'music thing' has been very good to me. I feel incredibly fortunate & eternally grateful.

Recently slowing the pace a little, along with moving to the country, shows these days are more solo styled affairs that coincided well with releasing   - Big, River, Little Stories -  on  which I was fortunate enough to reunite with some of the country's finest musicians to work including Syd Green (19-Twenty) and Ben Franz (The Waifs)

Hope you find what your looking here! Cheers, Simon. 

"One of Australia's most endearing singer songwriters Simon Marks is nothing if not adaptable. Simon has toured intensively over the last decade, and in that, shares with his loyal listeners a saddlebag of uplifting stories with each show. Always captivating and emotional, Simon remains one of Australia's most remarkable storytellers"
