Short Biog: Simon Chandler comes from London but now lives in Manchester. His sound is inspired by Brazilian bossa and Portuguses Fado, whilst lyrical themes are often based around his love of the seaside – not the tropical beaches you would expect but of the British seaside, most notably the western coast of the Scottish Highlands which Simon describes as his “spiritual home”.
