Simon is playing drums since 2000. He took private drum lessons with Éric Boudreault and Guy Nadon. He has been in a rock band called Mr.Kyte for 2 years and they made shows in Montreal in places like “the Club Soda, the Café Campus, the Swimming, the Break, the cabaret Juste Pour Rire, the Cola Note, the Salla Rosa Music Hall, the Hard Rock Café” and more.
In 2004-2005, when he was in high school, he had participated in an interprovincial contest. Simon won the first price 2 years in a row for a drum solo plus a medley of many songs played with a CD.
Every year, Simon participates in “CÉGEP en spectacle” in the band. That is the band that accompany artists that need musicians to do their music live.
In 2006, Simon was asked to do the opening show of the Canadian championship of Ringuette. This show was in front of a crowd of 2500 people and was broadcasted on TV all over Canada.
Simon is the owner on a vintage sound recording studio. He does drum tracks for artists that have songs that need drum to be added. This studio is equipped with mostly vintage gear so that it has this extra rich and mellow tone that it is not possible to find with today’s digital technology.
