Simone Felice is a founding member of internationally acclaimed Catskill Mountain based artists The Felice Brothers, whose seminal self-titled album remains one of the most influential works of this century’s indie-folk revival. In the spring of 2010 Simone underwent emergency open-heart surgery to halt the degenerative effects of a childhood fever. It was this dance with death – coupled with a need to tell his own story – which prompted him to walk the solo path, which also followed his work in The Duke and The King

His new live double album (feat. The Felice Brothers) is released¬†this summer ahead of his tour on Mighty Hudson Records. This special anthology showcases selected works from a decade of writing, truly capturing Simone’s rare gift as a songsmith, poet and visionary. Simone’s just received his first Gold Record for his work with guru producer Rick Rubin on The Avett Brothers seminal 2009 Columbia Records release.
