Simon Fagan-Outside Looking In

The irresistible and powerful melodies of Irish singer-songwriter Simon Fagan will be released in his debut album, ”Outside Looking In”. This much-anticipated LP manages to capture the emotion of Simon’s live sets and combine it with his compelling harmonies and intricate arrangements. It includes the live favourites “Damn Honey” and “Water’s Edge” and the International Songwriting Competition short-listed gem “Never Really Cried”.

Outside Looking In” sees a change in direction from Simon’s debut EP “Hired And Fired”, moving away from brass heavy arrangements and focusing more on acoustic-based rock, with elements of gospel and folk to give it a warm Americana feel. Co-produced by Fagan and Martin Quinn, the album carries lush string arrangements and features the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

2009 saw Simon tour heavily throughout Ireland and the UK, performing on no fewer then nine primetime BBC shows, Newstalk’s Weekend Blend and Today with Pat Kenny on RTE. Fagan even ventured as far as Egypt, where he and his band not only performed sold out shows in Cairo, Sharm El Sheik and Dahab, but was invited to appear on national TV and Radio. He has previously opened for Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson and more recently at Laura Izibor’s sold out Tripod show. With an Irish tour in the pipeline for May/June and a number of festivals already booked, this summer is setting up to be a very busy one for Simon.
