about

A new LP by SIMON WELLS entitled THE IDLE POET. Released on Friday 31st July on 208 Records. Acclaimed author & musician Simon Wells releases the final part of of his 208 Records trilogy. 'The Idle Poet' is the follow up to the acclaimed 'The Shopkeeper's Son' from 2014. This set of songs is once again designed to evoke & entertain. No flash technology was used in the recording of this work, just good songwriting, & simple, crafted arrangements. Influences and comparisons are made to Nick Drake, Ronnie Lane, McCartney & Ray Davies. Simon Wells is both an author, with 'Quadrophenia – a way of life' & 'Butterfly on a Wheel' among many titles. As a musician, his soulful, quirky & pastoral work is an instant addition to the canon of classic British singer songwriters. Beautifully recorded at Bentham Studios, Wiltshire, by Dug Wolfsohn www.208records.co.uk
