Session Guitarist

Simon Mcbride on SoundBetter

I'm a session guitarist from the U.K. I have appeared and toured with many artists in all styles, the most recent highlight for me was appearing on Ian Gillan's album 'Contractual Obligation'. I have done various television score music and syncs. Whether it's acoustic or electric I can do it.

After a European tour with Ian Gillan Sings Deep Purple and major credits as guitarist and co-writer on Don Airey’s latest album Simon recently signed to Europe’s leading rock label, Ear Music, home of Alice Cooper, Al Di Meola, Deep Purple, Foreigner, and a host of other leading names. His guitar skills (“Among the best blues-rock players anywhere in the world” GUITARIST) have made him a go-to guitarist on the British Rock scene, admired among professionals, followed by enthusiasts, and endorsed by some of the biggest brands on the guitar scene. He is a long-time endorser of PRS Guitars.
Former Young Guitarist of The Year and now fully-fledged blues-rock virtuoso. He has toured with Joe Satriani and opened in the UK and Ireland for Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, and US slide maestro and Grammy nominee Derek Trucks. A few months after his sixteenth birthday Simon was recruited by the Belfast-based pioneering metal band Sweet Savage, who reformed in 1994 without their founding guitarist, Vivian Campbell (Dio, Def Leppard), who Simon replaced. Simon toured with the band and recorded two albums, Killing Time 1996 and Rune 1998.
Then, after six years touring with fellow Irishman Andrew Strong, who made his name in the 1991 cult film The Commitments.
His debut album on Ear Music is set to release in 2020.
