Simeon Walker 'Gleam' | Live from Sage Gateshead
Leeds-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, following the release of ‘Mono‘ and ‘Winnow‘, his two albums to date.
With musical training & degrees from University of Leeds & Leeds Conservatoire, Simeon has performed & toured across the UK and Europe, including supporting S. Carey, Sebastian Plano & Loscil, whilst also appearing at Latitude, Timber Festival (UK), Q3Ambientfest (DE), FAN Festival (PT), with his music regularly broadcast on stations including BBC Radio 3 and KEXP. He also founded and curates Brudenell Piano Sessions; an intimate and varied concert series highlighting the diverse music being composed and performed on the piano.
In a busy, scrolling-fuelled world, Simeon’s calm, introspective piano-based instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness, beauty and meaning as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each tender, intimate performance.
‘Gleam’ was recorded live in Sage Two at our fourth From the Glasshouse gig – an amazing series of gigs with special one-off performances, intimate sets, the occasional surprise guest and a cosy and relaxed feel. Offering up a place for you to discover your new favourite artist.
