Jan Simson – About

Jan Simson is a London-based session and live drummer and musical director. He moved from South-West Germany to London in 2016 to study music at BIMM London and has since been performing live and recording in studios internationally.

As a session musician, Jan has had the pleasure of working with producers such as Hans-Martin Buff, Nigel Heath, Tom Allom, Carlos Lellis, Haydn Bendall, Dustin Dooley, Andy Apel, Edmund Shaw, Andy Hall Hall, and many others at Abbey Road Studios, Studio 13, Super Symmetry Studios, the Abbey Road Institute, Strongroom Studios, and more.

Jan has performed live with Tadhg Daly, Ben Kidson, Novelty Island, Selin, Collette Cooper, Bobbie Harvey, and many others at venues such as O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Union Theatre, 229, Notting Hill Arts Club, Camden Assembly, and numerous more.

He started drumming at the tender age of four and never thought to stop, so now here we are. Jan started out playing pop but eventually followed the musical rabbit hole down to rock, punk rock, heavy metal, alternative metal, fusion, jazz, blues, funk, soul, gospel, R&B, neo-soul, EDM, disco, and back to pop. Mainly because pop makes the most money. Rent prices in London are no joke.
