https://simonjoyner.bandcamp.com/
Since starting in 1992 Joyner has released 13 full length albums, 5 compilation records, 3 live albums, over a dozen singles and EPs, has collaborated with the likes of the Mountain Goats, Bright Eyes and David Nance, has a published book of poetry, founded a record label and has yet to slow down. He constantly pushes the boundaries of what can be considered "folk," "americana," or "singer-songwriter," with releases ranging from intimate lo-fi bedroom recordings, to full band twangy rock anthems, to blown noise and has been name checked as a favorite by Beck and John Peel and a direct influence to the likes of Conor Oberst, Gillian Welch and Kevin Morby. An artist who has remained a champion of DIY and the underground for over 25 years.
