Mark Deeks markdeeks.co.uk/
“A solo piano album of austere wonder. Superb. Give it time and drift through it’s space”. (The Cross Eyed Pianist)
“Truly beautiful”. (Piano & Coffee)
“True pianist art”. (Gezeitenstrom)
“Outstanding. One of the albums of the year”. (MainlyPiano)
Mark has a lifetime of experience on the piano, but until now this has been through a career playing other people’s music for other people, with clients as varied as Faye Tozer, Royal Northern Sinfonia and Winterfylleth. Now, as part of the burgeoning North of England solo piano scene, his solo music finally sees his creative spirit given air, as instrumental piano music reflects different aspects of the Northumbrian region he calls home. Haunting, relaxing and uplifting in equal measure.
Thursday March 29th @12.45
“Resplendent” – The Big Issue
“Beautifully captivating” – Gold Flake Paint
“A tender-hearted collection of thoughtfully composed pieces in slow bloom and wrapped in hushed intimacy” – Stationary Travels
“Listening to ‘Mono’ is remembering to breathe again” – GIGsoup
Following a decade working as a professional musician, Leeds-based pianist and composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the Modern Classical scene in his own right, following the release of his EP ‘Preface’ (2016) and his debut full length album ‘Mono’ at the end of 2017. With consecutive official Piano Day playlist features and numerous glowing reviews from across the music world, Walker’s calm, introspective piano instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness and beauty as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as stories are told – even created – with each tender, intimate performance.
