SIMO: JD Simo's psychedelic blues rock trio arrives in Italy

Following the success of the Blackberry Smoke support date last June, the SIMO return to Italy for a single headlining stage in our country. The appointment with the trio led by JD Simo is set for Tuesday 1 November at DRUSO in Ranica (BG). All pre-sale information will be available at

I SIMO are known for the high level of improvisation in their performances, between blues and Southern rock sounds contaminated by jazz and R&B. A disruptive band capable of combining creativity and naturalness with the power of rock and grunge enriched by a good dose of psychedelia. The trio will be in Italy to present their new album, Let Love Show The Wayreleased in January by Mascot Labela prestigious label that has produced, among others, such names as Joe Bonamassa, Volbeat, Black Label Society. Let Love Show The Way is not an album that has been studied in advance, but it highlights that vocation for improvisation that is typical of the Simo and that typical soulful songwriting that does not lack raw, electrifying intensity.

The trio from Nashville, Tennessee, is led by guitar virtuoso JD Simoand composed of Adam Abrashoff to the battery and from Elad Shapiro on bass and backing vocals. JD Simo, leader of the band, does not overshadow his two travelling companions, but in every performance of the band no one musician carries more weight than another. As JD Simo himself confirms, each musician is complementary to the other: Adam is a free improviser and together they bring JD's musical ideas to life.
