Full Biography of Music-director Simon
Simon is an Indian film composer who has composed music for Tamil films. Making his debut with Sasi\'s Ainthu Ainthu Ainthu (2013), Simon won positive reviews for his soundtrack and background score.
Simon was born in Chennai and did his schooling in Don Bosco, Peravallur and then at St. Johns, Villivakkam. At the age of 16, Simon started learning music from Jayakar, who he considers his mentor. Simon then went on to graduate in electrical and electronics engineering.
When Simon started his engineering course, he simultaneously started his career as a keyboard programmer. He then continued to work on developing his interests in composing and arranging music. It was during this time that he took up his first recording assignment for singer and composer Jolle Abraham in his studio and began to consider composing as a career seriously for the first time. Soon he started working on a lot of projects with his friend Ravi Shankar who is a studio engineer and also with bass guitarist Keith Peters. From there he worked on jingles where he notably worked on the entire sound design for Hello FM as well as for more than 300 jingles for various brands. Simultaneously he worked as a freelance keyboard programmer for many music directors in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam film industries.
Simon made his debut in the Bharath starrer, Ainthu Ainthu Ainthu(2013) directed by Sasi. The song “Elavu”, that Simon had composed for the same film was critically acclaimed and was well received on social media. Simon\'s music for his second film Aindhaam Thalaimurai Sidha Vaidhiya Sigamani, also a Bharath starter, won a lot of positive response and was widely appreciated. A review stated \"Simon continues to show promise after Ainthu Ainthu Ainthu!.\" and \"A good different genre catchy album from music director Simon after 555.\". The music was also greatly appreciated by veteran Director K. Balachander, as he stated \"I myself felt like dancing to those tunes.\". The album also featured Music Director Vijay Antony, crooning a complete song for the first time, for a different composer.
