Simone Casarotti is a self-produced indie-pop artist for fans of understated pop music with catchy hooks. He is based in West London and is originally from north eastern Italy.
Mixing alternative contemporary pop with 80’s new wave, he quotes Tears for Fears, Roxy Music, Talking Heads and Fleetwood Mac as major influences.
Simone, originally a guitar player, discovered the joy of songwriting at 13: he would write 3 songs per day and fill up notebooks with melodies and made-up stories.
He now uses his music as a means to normalize queer stories, inviting listeners into his world of adult queerness with soft-sung introspective lyrics and groovy but relaxed productions, and a nonchalant attitude.
Simone has released his debut single “Cantaloupe” in September 2020, a celebration of summer fun and homage towards his Italian identity. He is having his debut headline show later this year at the historic Amersham Arms location in New Cross, London and is going to release his new single in autumn 2021.
