Ukulele Simon is a ukulele player and live performer from Norwich, UK.  His signature style uses effects, looping, beatbox and anything unconventional to push the limits of what the ukulele can do.

After years of playing the drums and guitar, Simon came to the ukulele in his 20s and used it to build a strong foundation touring across the UK and Europe.

In 2018, he started posting on Instagram, and quickly built over 10,000 followers on the platform. This gave him the opportunity to perform at numerous acclaimed ukulele festivals such as The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival and The Ukulele Festival Of Scotland.
