Simon Drew has a bachelor of music, majoring in jazz trumpet and vocals, but his artistry has since taken him down many interesting paths, both within without of the world of jazz. 

His musical explorations have led him all the way from the Caribbean and Mediterranean—singing and playing jazz on some of the world’s largest cruise ships—to the forests and mountains of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland where he gained the inspiration for his first solo piano album: Pairidaēza Suite

Lately, Simon has been focusing on his piano compositions as well as his poetry, bringing the two artforms together to create transformative philosophical experiences for his patrons.
