Prolific UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, regularly performing and touring across the UK and Europe.

He has supported a variety of artists including Neil Cowley, LYR, Submotion Orchestra, S. Carey,
Loscil, Erland Cooper & Niklas Paschburg, and performed notable live sets at Latitude & Timber Festivals. His music is regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC 6Music, Classic FM, Scala Radio, KEXP & Soho Radio, with his music receiving listening figures in excess of 30 million streams across platforms, and a recent release, Reverie, featuring on the first official Piano Day compilation by the LEITER label, alongside Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds and Chilly Gonzales. He also founded and continues to curate Brudenell Piano Sessions: an intimate and varied live music series highlighting the diverse music being composed and performed on the piano, hosted at Leeds iconic Brudenell Social Club.

Simeons recent work represents a return to the introspective piano-based instrumentals that first thrust him into the limelight. His new EP series Imprints features a set of piano miniatures
representing everyday fleeting moments; brief snapshots in time, centred on conveying the
emotions and feelings experienced during the lockdowns of recent years, whilst highlighting the desire to be outside and out in the open. His music and live performances reflect the extremes of human experience - gentle, calm and still at times; powerful, boisterous and flowing at others, with the aim of breaking down the barrier between performer and audience, creating the opportunity for real, genuine connection through music, not just through idle, passive listening, but in meaningful, engaged participation. Listeners are invited to find stillness, beauty and meaning as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each passionate, intimate performance.

Joining Simeon at Cafe #9 are two brilliant, creative Sheffield-based musicians and artists:
Liz Hanks is a cellist, creator and collaborator whose recent album Land explores musical
influences including minimalism, folk, Indian classical music and improvisation whilst remaining
heavily rooted in her local landscape. Based on the local and natural history of her local area in
Sheffield, the record explores both the loss of nature in the urban environment and forgotten
natural worlds, whilst celebrating the green spaces that remain.

TSarzi is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist who has opened for established acts like Richard Dawson. Her show Gone to the Dogs was a Lyn Gardner pick at VAULT Festival will be at EdFringe (Gilded Balloon) 2023, with the album due for release in autumn.


Please note this ticket price DOES include a byo/corkage fee should you want to bring alcohol to the venue.

All additional purchases of drinks and snacks from the cafe counter are always very much appreciated.
