Music Video: Simi Stone - Good Friend
Following an sense of personal and creative wanderlust that saw her traverse musical highways and byways both at home and abroad, U.S, singer/songwriter Simi Stone came to the conclusion that there was indeed truth in the old adage, 'there is no place like home'. Returning to her native Woodstock, New York, to recharge her personal and artistic batteries, she teamed up with producer David Baron to craft her distinctive brand of 'mountain Motown pop', a soulfully charming fusion of the emotional insight of a singer/songwriter and the timelessly catchy melodic instincts of the Detroit icon.
Building a following through playing the Hudson Valley and New York live scenes - including recently performing at the iconic Carnegie Hall alongside the legendary David Byrne and Sharon Jones - Stone caught our attention last year with her song 'Pyramid' and the subtle rasp of her sweetly alluring voice, and is now looking forward to the release - via Reveal Records in the U.K. - of her upcoming 13-track album and bonus, 5-song 'Good Friend' EP. In anticipation, she has released the 'following-her-dreams' visual for 'Good Friend''s hopeful appeal to find the kind of encouraging, affirming and supportive energy that will help her on her way.
