“Omaha has given us the reigning heir to Henry Miller’s dark emotional
mirror, Townes Van Zandt’s three-chord moan, and Lou Reed’s warehouse
minimalism: his name is Simon Joyner.”
“Pound for pound Simon Joyner is my favorite lyricist of all time. He
has shades of all the greats (Van Zandt, Cohen, Dylan) but exists in a
space all his own … He truly is an American songwriting treasure. It
is my hope that more people will discover his music and share in the
unique joy that it brings.”
“Simon’s always been a secret handshake amongst me and my peers. He’s
a pioneer. He’s helped pave the way for many people, myself included.
He’s an artist in its purest form–for his only concern is crafting a
perfect song–which he’s done time and time again.”
“POSSIBLY THE BEST SONGWRITER IN THE UNITED STATES THAT NOBODY OUTSIDE DIY TAPE COLLECTORS AND HIS FRIENDS HAS HEARD.” -NOISEY
