About

Si is a fabulous throwback to the old swing blues shouters of the 1940s and 1950s.
He began his singing career as a successful classic soul club singer in the late 1990s around London where he enjoyed residencies with his band at the famous Hammersmith Palais and Clapham Grand.
In the early noughties he founded a busking vocal duo with his brother The Dualers originally harmonising a mix up of classic soul, ska and rock ‘n’ roll where Si went on to write, produce, record and release their debut single Kiss On The Lips which reached 21 in the UK national charts in 2004.
The duo continued to pound the pavements in the years that followed selling out London’s O2 Indigo with Si’s songwriting and vocals remaining a key ingredient on the albums they recorded up until 2011.
In 2012 Si returned back to a solo career having become a prolific bandleader and songwriter on the vintage scene with dance-floor hits Dynamo and Coupe De Ville which still remained favourites on the old wooden floors.
In 2018 Si was back in the spotlight reaching millions when an old 2010 dance clip of him street performing with his brother went viral. The clip, shot by a passer by, captured Si’s jovial home recorded version of a 1962 Jamaican Ska tune Don’t Stay Out Late. Si added a penny whistle, sped the tune up to a jig and created a dandy street dance.
In 2020 whilst in lockdown Si wrote and recorded an intimate unplugged album on his acoustic guitar Poems Unlocked which was officially released on iTunes and via his online shop early in 2021.
People have compared Si to many old greats like Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke but Si remains his own man with his own distinct voice and songwriting close enough to the old pros of the 1950s and 1960s … so come along and enjoy !
