"Australian Pop Singer Simon Astley's song London was played at the Queens Diamond Jubilee in the UK."
Australian Pop Singer Simon Astley has enjoyed massive success over the last few years, releasing single after single, with no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
After extensive touring in Australia, the UK, and the United States over the last 10 years, Astley is back at the Recording Studio in Melbourne working alongside well known producer Sam Panetta (Kylie Minogue, Crowded House, Kisschasy), and Los Angeles Producer Killian Cruiser.
Astley has capped off an amazing couple of years, with chart success in Australia with his recent singles Sunset Avenue & Waiting at the Door, and the re release of his 2016 single Temptation. With Simon's songs being added to new Radio Stations everyday, you can feel this real buzz that he is creating, will never stop anytime soon. His brand new song Sunset Avenue has just been added to MTV, airing the film clip throughout America this year.
One of the quiet achievers of Australian Music, Astley’s years of hard work are starting to pay off. With big plans for an Album release later this year, Simon is gearing up now for an even bigger 2023. “I have recently finished working on a new track with Australian/Irish Singer Songwriter Damien Leith called Crossroads, and we are both excited to have this track out into the world very soon" Astley said. Simon & Damien penned the track Love for the City back in the summer of 2018.
Astley was born in Perth WA, and moved to Devonport Tasmania when he was just 6 years old. With a father from Birmingham and a Record Deal with UK Record Label Gotham Records, Astley naturally feels a connection between the UK and his home in Tasmania. “I was brought up on music right from the start” Astley said. “My mum was a music teacher, and enrolled me in private piano & saxophone lessons in Devonport at an early age". “I then remember getting the Songwriting bug when I was about 9 years old, and I haven't looked back since" Astley said.
Simon has recently been chosen as the Radio Announcer for the brand new Australian Radio Show called AUS10 Radio, which is the affiliate of US10 Radio, and broadcast on radio stations throughout the United Kingdom. “I absolutely love hosting the AUS10 Radio Show, and enjoy showcasing great Australian talent to the people of England” Astley said. “I have learnt so much from being a radio announcer, and its great to be the interviewer for a change” Astley said.
Simon is no stranger to the TV screens, with appearances on the Marngrook Footy Show (AUS), Late Night with Monica Price (UK), The Real Sauce TV Show (UK), The Cath Vincent Show (NZ), Neighbours (AUS), Underbelly (AUS) Oogies Popcorn TV AD (USA), and Carlton Draught TV AD (AUS).
Simon’s song London was played as part of the Queens Diamond Jubilee in the United Kingdom in 2012.
