Best known as lead vocalist and guitarist with Britpoppers Ocean Colour Scene, Simon Fowler has also provided backing vocals for ‘Modfather’ Paul Weller and folk artist Kate Rusby.

Ocean Colour Scene are one of the most successful bands to have come out of the Britpop explosion of the mid-nineties, famously knocking Oasis’ Be Here Now off the UK Album Chart top spot with 1997 record Marchin’ Already. Popular hits include The Day We Caught The Train and TFI Friday intro track The Riverboat Song.

Simon has been working with Pledge Music to release his new album, Merrymouth, which features the award winning folk musicians, John McCusker and Andy Cutting.

Pledge Music is an online direct-to-fan and fan-funded music platform, launched in August 2009, that facilitates musicians (artists) reaching out to their fan-base (termed pledgers) to financially contribute to upcoming recordings or other musical projects.

Simon and his band Dan Sealey, Mike McNamara & Adam Barry will be doing a handful of dates in April to support the album. Whist Ocean Colour Scene take most of the 2012 off to concentrate on writing material for a new album Simon Fowler has taken the opportunity to release his long awaited folk album.
