Simon Hirst (Janelle Matchett) is a young singer / songwriter from Hamilton, New Zealand.  He recorded his debut EP in 2015 and more recently his full album, Feet of God which features stunning original music that has been compared to the likes of Dave Dobbyn & Crowded House. This LP also features famous drummer Patrick Khutze & Split Enz Keyboardist/Producer, Eddie Rayner. Simon is equally at home as a solo act or with a band, performing both originals and covers which makes him a very diverse & in-demand artist. The future looks bright for this multi-talented kiwi!
