“Simon Fitzpatrick is a guy who constantly pushes himself to see what can be done on bass” – Kevin Johnson (No Treble)
“I had a blast playing with my ridiculously talented band featuring Simon Fitzpatrick” Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck)
UK based musician Simon Fitzpatrick has toured and recorded with Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Joe Lynn-Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Michael Hill (B.B. King) among others.
Not content with simply being in the background, Simon has always tried to take bass guitar playing as far as possible. Using all six strings of his extended range instrument he performs as a lead player, a soloist or polyphonic accompanist.
He has recently released his debut solo bass guitar album in which he uses his virtuoso technique to recreate a wide variety of pieces and styles, ranging from classical to classic rock, on one single instrument. You’ve never seen a bass guitar played like this before!
