McBride proves himself a true master of hooklines, from the vocal lines to the riffs and adorning licks, everything is utterly catchy and (even the guitar lines!) truly singable.
Songs like the great “SHOW ME HOW TO LOVE”, the straight rocker “KINGDOMS” and the new high-energy single “HIGH STAKES” prove exactly that: McBride’s music is all about the songs, the soul.
Simon comes from Belfast in Northern Ireland, a place that resonates of the best music traditions like Gary Moore, Rory Gallagher as well as bands such as Thin Lizzy, Stiff Little Fingers, and obviously U2. His biography tells the story of his band touring with no sound engineer, driver, roadie, playing 30 shows in 35 days and catching the attention of the label who challengingly asked him to “Show us what you´ve got” by booking him into a studio for 12 hours on his only day off on tour to be auditioned. Simon not only convinced the label, that he has what is takes, but left a, probably eternal, lasting impression.
