SOMETHING ABOUT

BIOGRAPHY

Songwriter, singer, novelist and film director, Alan Simon was born on July 3rd, 1964 in Nantes (France)

 

In 1984 he wrote his first songs, including 'SOS World' sung by Murray Head. In 1995, he wrote his first musical tale, 'The Little Arthur', for which 50,000 copies were released.

 

In 1999, the release of 'Excalibur, The Celtic Legend' imposed him as a songwriter.

 

A year later, Alan Simon produced Roger Hodgson's album 'Open the door' for which he composed the last track 'For every man'.

 

In 2003, he conceived 'Gaia' (200,000 copies sold in 23 countries), a concept album charity dedicated to Earth, dealing with preservation of the environment and for which artists from different backgrounds responded: Midnight Oil, Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues, Zucchero, Jane Birkin, Cesaria Evora, Billy Preston…

'Gaia' is then played in front of 60,000 people during the 'Art on Ice' festival, early 2004.

 

In 2004, he composed the song 'I have a dream' for the South-African anti-apartheid musical 'Umoja'.

 

In 2005, Alan Simon directed the feature film 'O Genghis' which recounts the odyssey of the last Mongolian nomads, descendants of Genghis Khan. This film was shot in Russia and Asia and the narrators are respectively Jean Reno for the French version and Omar Sharif for the English one.

 

In 2007, he released the second opus of his trilogy 'Excalibur II The Celtic Ring' featuring Jon Anderson, Alan Parsons, Barclay James Harvest, Maddy Prior, Jacqui McShee, John Wetton (King Crimson / Asia), John Helliwell (Supertramp), Flook, Karan Casey, Fairport Convention, Andreas Vollenweider…

That Excalibur trilogy is among Alan’s greatest successes in France and Europe (gold discs in Germany).

 

In 2008, the American jury and the audience of the Progressive Rock Hall of Fame awarded him Progressive Rock Producer of the Year. Moreover the Award of the Progressive Rock Song of the Year has been awarded to the song 'Circle of life', performed by Jon Anderson for 'Excalibur II, the Celtic Ring'.

 

In 2009, Alan Simon composed the rock opera 'Anne of Brittany' with Barclay James, Fairport Convention, Pat O’May, James Wood, Ange… Same year in July, 'Excalibur II' is performed in front of 19,000 people for the 30th anniversary of the Tournament of Chivalry Kaltenberg. Following the big success of these two performances in Germany, 'Excalibur II' toured throughout Germany where 150,000 people attended this Celtic rock opera.

 

In 2012, 'Excalibur III The Origins', ultimate opus of the trilogy, is released. Same year on July 14th, 'Excalibur III' became a single concert in Paimpont, in the very heart of the forest of Brocéliande, in France, in front of 8,000 people.

 

In 2014, the Musical 'Tristan & Isolde' which took 18 months to be finalized. The album has been released in stores on march 3rd, and the world premiere of the show was performed at the Zenith de Nantes venue, on March 7th 2014, in front of 3,500 people.

December 19, 2014 Alan Simon created the musical tale "Cap'tain Kid" (after the tale "Le petit Arthur" created 20 years earlier at the Océanis theater of Ploemeur). Directed by Alan Simon and choreographed by Nikolay Androsov, this tale is made in favor of the Association pour Killian (children suffering of Angelman syndrome) of whom Alan Simon is the godfather. An album of 12 original songs was realized during summer 2014 (with various members of French band Ange, Jeremy Spencer (Fleetwood Mac), Jesse Siebenberg (Supertramp), Siobhan Owen, Roberto Tiranti, Kohann, Alan Simon ...) and also a live DVD. The set will be released as a CD-book for Christmas 2015.
