Former Young Guitarist of The Year and now fully-fledged blues-rock virtuoso, Irishman McBride Is at the start of what many industry pundits are predicting will be a glittering career. 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), whom 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, Simon came off the road to pursue the idea of a solo career.

His debut album on Ear Music is set to release in 2020.
