Simon Joyner is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90's alongside contemporaries mining similar territory, like Will Oldham, Peter Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, Smog, and Alastair Galbraith. Joyner was championed early by the late British DJ, John Peel, who famously played Joyner's 1994 LP, "The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll", start to finish on one of his BBC programs, initially making Joyner more well known overseas than in his own country. One of Omaha's favorite sons, he's been releasing critically acclaimed albums on various independent labels every few years for over two decades.
Joyner and his band The Ghosts are celebrating the release of his thirteenth proper album, "Grass, Branch & Bone", set for release on Woodsist March 31st.
