Simon Meli has forged the reputation of ‘working class soul rocker’ that remains instilled in the minds of those who have bared witness to his unique stage presence and unrivalled passion. The word is on the street about one of Australia’s most remarkable voices.
Reviving and owning a classic essence, frontman of Sydney band The Widowbirds, feels the time has come to give his own name a Moment In The Sun. Simon has invited members of The Widowbirds and fellow like-minded musicians to form a solid band for his solo tour.
‘Front man Simon Meli, has more Soul than the devil could ever collect. Every note and every lyric is delivered with more passion than the most tragic of Shakespeare novels… ’ Robyn Anson – The Brag
‘There was a time when all rock’n’roll bands had to have a frontman who sang this well – but that era is long gone: I had not heard a sound like this for years.’ John Hardaker – The Orange
