A blending of Southern rock and British psychedelia, Simo, tears through guitar solos and bangs out thunderous percussion beats that destroys any misconception that the two genre’s couldn’t co-exist as one. Hailing from Nashville, the power trio band known as Simo knows it’s roots and influences in their music, think Allman Brothers meets Jimi Hendrix, that blasts triumphantly in a truly rocking sound. Simo consists of JD Simo on lead guitar and vocals, Elad Shapiro on bass guitar, and Adam Abrashoff on drums, forming a terrific trio whose intoxicating chemistry is immediately heard.
Simo stopped by Studio 1A and shared some of their music from their newest album, Let Love Show The Way, and played at the Belmont on Thursday. If you didn’t get a chance to see them live, you can stream their music here, on KUTX.
