ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Simeon Flick performs accessibly innovative music in many genres, including folk-jazz, alternative R&B, alt-country and pop. He is slowly bulding a formidable reputation and a connoiseur following with his adroit musicality, soulful four-octave voice, and memorable songs with poignant lyrics.

Simeon Flick grew up listening to cool torch-song jazz, 60's R&B, 70's funk, classic rock of all decades, and 80's & 90's punk and alternative. At first he followed the trends and was in two vanguard-albeit virtually unknown-bands in the nineties before finally going solo in 2002.

Simeon knew no genre boundaries during his formative years, and perhaps it is because of this that he has transcended his influences by choosing to wear any and all of them on his sleeve at different times.

Unlike most other singer/songwriters wielding guitars, Simeon has done his homework; he holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance, has actually subjected himself to the much-evaded, often insecurity-excavating process of voice training, and is a perpetual student of music who continues to learn and apply accesible innovations to his art.

Radio-ready songs like "Do It & Leave" and "Can't Wait 'Til I Die" hint at depth and complexity in their titles alone, but the melodies and production are catchy as hell; this is heavy enlightenment disseminated via ear candy.

Simeon's goals are modest: To make a philanthropic living through music, and to be a soloist in the choir of life.

Craig Yerkes - San Diego Troubadour

be surprised and delighted by this disc
Fully schooled, yet irreverent and audacious, Simeon Flick is like the classically trained artist who can use his finely tuned technique to create an exquisite oil painting in one moment and then throw convention to the wind in the next by playfully flinging funky colors against a wall just for the hell of it. This is one musically twisted dude and for my money, the moments on “Indigo Child” that inspire and delight the most are the ones where Mr. Flick is most aggressively getting in touch with his inner Frank Zappa.
“Round in Circles” and “Good Graces” both offer catchy tweaks on somewhat conventional acoustic rock formats with plenty of musical and lyrical ear candy to keep your attention. “Indigo Child” gives you an intoxicating first glimpse into the instrumental side of Simeon Flick with spooky chord changes and jazzy leads. “Do It and Leave” makes good on the promise of the first three tracks by delivering a instantly potent, confident rocker with more sly twists than I can really trust myself to speak of, both musically and lyrically. One thing that certainly becomes evident on “Do It and Leave” is the fact that any attempt to place Mr. Flicks’ vocal style and/or range into any particular category is an exercise in futility. The next two tracks left me a little bit flat, but “Contemplation No. 3: River” gets it back on track in a big way with a stunning classical number that fully transcends the obligatory “rock guitarist weakly imitating a classical guitarist on a rock album while playing an insultingly boring pseudo-classical piece” scenario by delivering a fully legit and beautiful rendition of a wonderfully fresh Flick original composition. “Omegajam” removes any doubt you may have had before about just what a funky chicken this Simeon Flick really is. The lyrics stand alone on this track as a jaw-dropping take on the state of the world juxtaposed against an imagined meeting featuring the gods of mythology. To say anything more about these supremely clever lyrics would just not be right....you’ve GOT to hear them/read them for yourself and be amazed. The music on “Omegajam” delivers the same punch that the lyrics do with a crazy ass shuffle beat, turned on its’ ear and then pimp slapped into a frenzy while Mr. Flick spills out the lyrics in an almost free-form fashion that reminds me of Paul Simon on the “Graceland” album. This is wildly entertaining stuff. “Can’t Wait Til’ I Die” shifts the music into an entirely new direction with a way cool, smoky jazz ditty that sounds to me a bit like Sting singing a Leon Redbone tune (side note, if the Sting/Leon combo sounds too eclectic for you, beware that this might not be the CD for you). The lyrics for “Can’t Wait Til’ I Die” are thought provoking (dare I say, even controversial??!!) to be sure and would be wonderful fodder for some sort of heated debate to erupt around a dinner table. And that brings us to the bonus track….am I even allowed to talk about the bonus track? All I will say about it is that it’s sort of like an Indiana Jones movie where you have to work your way through a maze of some ridiculous peril in order to get to the gold, but it’s well worth it when you get there as a very tasty track awaits you that will show yet ANOTHER genre of music that Simeon Flick inhabits with glee and swagger. Simeon Flick may also be one of the few musical artists out there who would dare put a song this strong in as a bonus track that takes a hell of alot of work to get to!
All in all, “Indigo Child” is a disc to be celebrated by those who appreciate real musical daring, craftsmanship and invention. If your musical desires begin and end with the dribble that your local STAR FM radio station spews out, then be afraid….be very afraid of this CD.
