"After being on the road for much of the autumn, there’s only one place I could possibly wish to return home to in Leeds to finish off this tour. I’d love you to join me for an intimate, *ever-so-slightly festive*, in-the-round performance, gathered around the piano at our beloved Brudenell Social Club. See you there!"

Prolific UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, regularly performing and touring across the UK and Europe. He has supported a variety of artists including Neil Cowley, LYR, Submotion Orchestra, S. Carey, Loscil, Erland Cooper & Niklas Paschburg, and performed notable live sets at Latitude & Timber Festivals.

His music is regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC 6Music, Classic FM, Scala Radio, KEXP & SohoRadio, with his music receiving listening figures in excess of 30 million streams across platforms, and a
recent release, ‘Reverie’, featuring on the first official Piano Day compilation by the LEITER label,
alongside Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds and Chilly Gonzales. He also founded and continues to curate
Brudenell Piano Sessions: an intimate and varied live music series highlighting the diverse music being
composed and performed on the piano, hosted at Leeds’ iconic Brudenell Social Club.

Simeon’s recent work represents a return to the introspective piano-based instrumentals that first thrust him into the limelight. His new EP series ‘Imprints’ features a set of piano miniatures representing everyday fleeting moments; brief snapshots in time, centred on conveying the emotions and feelings experienced during the lockdowns of recent years, whilst highlighting the desire to be outside and out in the open.

His music and live performances reflect the extremes of human experience - gentle, calm and still at
times; powerful, boisterous and flowing at others, with the aim of breaking down the barrier between
performer and audience, creating the opportunity for real, genuine connection through music, not just
through idle, passive listening, but in meaningful, engaged participation. Listeners are invited 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 passionate, intimate performance.
