The Wright family live and breathe music. Simon’s father Dave is a blues guitarists and a huge influence in his introduction to musical concepts, his brother Jedi is the guitarist for progressive metal outfit ENGINE (Formerly Engine Three Seven) and was his partner in fronting his first group The Wright Brothers. Simon’s family of four brothers and a sister were brought up in northern New South Wales alternative coastal town of Byron Bay. It was in Byron that Simon had his start in music with The Wright Brothers then later fronting The Groove Collective.

Performing live at Le Cabaret Du Monstique Feb 2013

In 2013 Simon began a new direction again. Stripping back this time to a solo show and incorporating a loop pedal gave him the freedom to tour on a much smaller budget. Meaning the international circuit was no longer out of reach. After 2 years of honing his skills on the looper he set off on his current adventure named #looptheworld.

What started out as an idea developed into a dream and now Simon is setting off to #LoopTheWorld with his guitar, loop station, change of underwear and girlfriend Hannah. “The idea is simple, gowhere the music takes us. It’s an adventure in living simply and putting faith into humanity and the unknown.” With shows already booked for East Coast Australia, Thailand, Greece and then through Europe the couple plan to live off performance fees, CD sales and the pocket change of strangers, literally singing for their super.

2nd Floor Samurais

2nd Floor Samurais are the latest phenomenon to hit the SF Bay Area Underground Hip Hop scene and comprises of veteran MC’s Orukusaki and Kensho Kuma. Both MC’s are seasoned homegrown independent Hip Hop artists whose roots can be traced back to the late nineties, with respective projects, international tours, and a strong local presence.

The Origin

2FS was officially formed when the highly decorated battle champion Orukusaki joined forces with the bilingual rhyme ninja Kensho Kuma in 2013. The title “2nd Floor Samurais” accurately captures their dedication to ancient warrior discipline which they apply to Hip Hop, their mentalities, and lifestyles. It also describes the MC’s constant practice and desire to ascend above the societal norm in respects to various life issues, ranging from relationships, human growth, and the derogatory implications of mass media. The view from this elevated state of mind is what the two consider the “2nd Floor.” The debut group album "Shogun Stories" had been in the works for roughly three years; the vast majority of the production has been handled by Decap who is credited with working with the likes of Talib Kweli, Snoop Dogg, and Masta Ace, and Sota Furugen, who is the “go-to-man” in Japanese Hip Hop, and has been credited with producing for Ayumi Hamasaki, who is considered the Mariah Carey of Asia. The debut group album is now finally available..
