About Simon

Simon Feenstra was born in the idyllic Friesian village of Burgum in the north of The Netherlands. Even at 8 years old he was destined for authenticity as he astonished audiences at local playback shows by enthusiastically singing out loud (instead of lip syncing) with explosive vocals and pitch perfect accuracy. After graduating from the Dutch Music Conservatory with top honors, he began his career singing in Jazz clubs, Pop stages and Theatres.

As a grown artist, Simon Feenstra lives for music and is capable of revealing the vulnerability of his soul in all of his singing. His original music is best described as “soul with big band grandeur”. With roots in the 70’s (Stevie Wonder) combined with the relevance of today’s sound (Bruno Mars, Michael Bublé) Simon forged his own modern style that is at once familiar, yet completely fresh and new.

In addition to arena concerts; he is a backup singer on the show ‘Elvis – Live on Screen feat. Priscilla Presley’, Radio and Television programs; his coverband is the studioband on a big Dutch National Television quiz, festivals, band tours, Simon writes his own songs, collaborates on projects with other artists, and produces his own concert series in The Netherlands.

“To think about it is one thing, but then actually doing it is another! Feenstra came through and recorded on 13 February 2013 in the famous Wisseloord Studio’s in Hilversum his album ‘Speak Out!’. One take, with a 33- piece orchestra and The New Gospel Sensation and a live audience! That’s never shown before in The Netherlands.”
