Simon Katz on SoundBetter

Grammy winning guitarist and former member of the group Jamiroquai, I have also worked with Gorillaz, Sia, Ms Dynamite, Omar, Tony Allen, Afel Bocoum, Diana Ross, Barrington Levy, Spacemonkeyz, Joe, Platinum Pied Pipers, Damon Albarn, Antonio Pinto, Lana Del Rey and others.

I’m into everything from soul, funk, r’n’b, disco to punk, reggae, highlife, hip-hop and house and have a broad experience working with other musicians and producers. I’ve done the deep dive and travelled far reaches of the globe to study my craft and take my inspirations from a wide variety of artists and genres.

I try to come up with sounds and parts that serve the song whether it’s about laying in the cut or driving the groove with a hook that sits centre stage. I am equally at home coming up with riffs and counter melodies as I am exploring soundscapes as a sonic bed for your composition. I also love recording acoustic guitar and use both steel and nylon stringed vintage instruments.

An audio stream of my recording session is available in real time. Sessions are streamed at full bandwidth and can be monitored through your browser or as a plugin in your DAW.

I’d love to hear about your project!

    I've known Simon for over 10 years and he is always my go to for guitar, string arrangements, production and overall vibe master. His wealth of music knowledge is why I choose to hire and collaborate with him on advertising campaigns and recording for todays top global acts. Every time a new project comes across my desk, I know who to call and it gives me excitement to work with such a world class musician and human.

    I had the privilege and the pleasure to work with Simon Katz here in New York City in many occasions and this polyandric musician/artist always came true in the top of his game in a variety of disciplines, composer, producer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist, programmer to list a few. From my perspective an excellent professional with outstanding skills. I am honored and happy to support him in any and all music industry and educational endeavors and certainly hope to be working with him again soon.

    I’ve worked with Simon as a musical director, producer and an also as a guitar player. He is a patient conscientious musician, always plays what is needed. We’re currently mixing my coming album. Very excited about the outcomes!

    I've worked with guitarist Simon Katz on every one of my musical productions, and his talents are truly extraordinary. Simon brings a level of subtlety to his work that consistently turns projects into something special. I highly recommend him for any project. He has a knack for understanding exactly what a piece of music needs and delivers every time. Simon is not just a musician; he's a true artist whose contributions can elevate any work to the next level.
