Simone Felice is a founding member (lyricist, vocalist, drummer and guitarist) of internationally acclaimed, Catskill Mountain-based artists The Felice Brothers and The Duke and The King. He has toured and worked with the likes of The Band's Levon Helm, Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, Rick Rubin, The Avett Brothers, and Old Crow Medicine Show. In 2010 Simone underwent emergency open-heart surgery to correct the slow, degenerative effects of a childhood fever. It was this close brush with death, coupled with the need to tell his own story, which prompted him to walk the solo artist's path. His new full-length album, 'Strangers', is a ten song collection recorded in the Catskills with guest artists The Felice Brothers, Leah Siegel, and Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers. Here is an effort that truly captures Simone's rare gift as a poet, song-crafter and unique visionary.LP with Download.
