Howard Simon

I am a singer-songwriter based in San Francisco. I have been writing songs most of my life and I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to have worked with incredible musicians and a phenomenal recording engineer in bringing my songs to life on my two albums, "The View from this Horizon," release in 2014, and my new album, "Visitors," released in June 2016.
My songs are about love (romantic and otherwise), family, morality and mortality. The writing spans many years -- from my 20's to my 50's -- and thus the songs consider these things in many lights and through the widely differing lenses of a young man and one somewhat older (though in my case, one probably not much wiser). If there is a common thread to my songs, it is the people we love, the desire to do right, and the hope and fear, the peace and the struggle that constitute life bring wonder in addition to its joy and sadness, and sometimes loss. My music is an attempt to capture and
communicate some of that wonder as I have known and imagined it throughout my life.
I hope you enjoy it.
Album: Visitors (2016)
My new "Visitors" is quite varied, with tunes that range from folk, jazz and blues to outand-out rock and roll. The album has twelve original songs and two covers -- "Sweet Little Mystery" by John Martyn and "Tomorrow is a Long Time" by Bob Dylan. On the latter I am joined by folk and blues legend Happy Traum. The album also features the same fantastic team from "The View from this Horizon" -- producer (and singer) Richard Brandenburg, engineer (and electric guitar player) Derek Bianchi, and a group of extraordinary musicians that includes Cary Black, Ed Johnson and Libby McLaren, as well as drummer Mark Ivester, singer Loryn Barbeau and slide guitar player Paul Weiss.

Danielle Haskell   

Danielle is an 18 year old Christian pop artist / song writer originally coming from the great state of Maine. By the age of 3 Danielle was already memorizing  songs, singing and taking piano lessons. Finding comfort in music on and off the stage, at age 6 it seemed natural for Danielle to added guitar lessons. As a fan of all music genres, it was her love of helping others that lead her to the Christian music industry. As Danielle faced some of the same challenges as many teens and the loss of loved ones, her perspectives began to change and Danielle started to understand the important messages the inspirational songs were delivering as they provided her with inspiration and comfort.
By using the emotional power / meaning behind her songs, the 18 year old definitely has a message to share that touches her audience. Danielle can be quoted as saying “The best part of music is when someone listens to and relates to your song. In the few minutes that they are listening to the song, not only do they become part of my story, but I become part of theirs and that is an awesome feeling.”
The lyrics for “Always With You” come from a very personal place for Danielle .
“Always With You” is dedicated to Danielle’s grandmother. She loved life and made endless efforts to continually connect with her family, particularly her grandchildren. Her grandmother over came her obstacles by emphasizing humor, acceptance and kindness. Danielle aspires to be like her grandmother by using the “golden rule” of treating others with kindness, respect and the way you want to be treated. Danielle knows from experience that one small act of kindness can make a difference. Since her grandmother meant so much, as soon as she was diagnosed with cancer, Danielle knew the concept for her next song. A week before her grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, Danielle was in Quebec. Since her grandmother wasn’t feeling well, she had asked Danielle to go to a church and light a candle for her. In a store across the street from this church, Danielle bought her grandmother a stone with an angel on one side and the saying “Toujours Avec Toi” (Always With You) on the other side. A few days after Danielle gave the medal to her grandmother, she found out she had cancer.
All of the sudden, the saying on that medal took on a whole new meaning.
Danielle and her grandmother had many conversations about how she believed she would, in ways, always be with her and the rest of the family. She talked about her fears and her religious beliefs. “Always With You” came from those conversations. Once again Danielle not only wanted, but needed, a song that would remind her and everyone that God is always with them. Knowing how difficult this loss was going to be she also wanted a reminder for herself and all others that those we lose, are also always with us. When she met with her cowriter / producer on April 18, 2016, they composed “Always With You” within an hour. Danielle’s grandmother was the first to hear the song before she lost her battle with cancer on April 29, 2016 which was Danielle’s 17th birthday. Always With You was released in September 2016 and was #1 on the Top 30 International Inspirational Christian Music in English from June 5th to June 27, 2017 (GT) (ICR).
Danielle’s ultimate goal is to use her talents and life experiences to help others.
In the past, Danielle has spent time volunteering with Big Brother’s Big sisters and speaking against bullying. Danielle is also known for her love of animals and adopted six cats and a dog from the local humane society while growing up.
After graduating from Cony High School in June 2016 at age , Danielle opted for a change in scenery. Danielle now lives in Asheville, North Carolina where she is just a few hours away from Nashville. There Danielle has continued to help others by participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and joining the local organizing committee for the walk. As for Danielle’s career goals, she has continued to write and record songs; all the while, pursing a future career that combines music and business to hopefully continue to make a difference in the lives of others. Expect Danielle’s next song to be out in March 2018! The song is already written and recorded and once again, the song has a meaning that will definitely evoke emotions.
