Simon Cousins Biography

Simon Cousins (born Simon Frederick Cousins, 17 January 1965, Bath, Somerset, England) is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who was a member of Liverpool indie country rock band The Onset and folk rockers Ophiuchus. After Grittleton House School, he studied music at the Liverpool Music College and has a degree in philosophy from Liverpool University. His solo work is in an acoustic, folk / country genre, described by Tim Peacock of Whisperin and Hollerin’ online magazine as “showcasing a fluid finger-picking style and a gentle, unobtrusive voice which nonetheless carries a determined presence.” Seph Ong of Glasswerk National stated that Cousins’ songs were “derived from real life experience” and that as a performer he “presents a series of tales that gradually unravel to build a story of the mystery of life.” Cousins performed at the Glastonbury Festival, Pilton, England, in 2010, 2011 and 2016. In April 2010, Si Cousins joined his brother Jon to reform Ophiuchus with fellow members, Pat D’Arcy (Saxophone), Glenn Wardle (Hammer Dulcimer), Pete Causer (Melodeon), Richard Hughes (Piano Accordion), Xavier Tutien (Bass), Myke Vince (Drums), Jack “WestWayy” Cousins (Percussion), Mike Slater (Cruel Driver) and Dick (Mumming Memento Mori). The Group had not played together for 23 years. In an interview with journalist Nick Cook, Cousins commented that “planning rehearsals with band members in Chippenham, Swindon, Bristol, Glastonbury, Liverpool and Paris was a logistical nightmare.”. The reformed band played on the Bandstand Stage at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts on Sunday, 27 June 2010..

Since the Onset folded in 1995, Simon Cousins has continued to write songs, developing as an acoustic guitarist with an intimate vocal style and poignant lyrics. He recorded at Pat D’Arcy’s studio during the 90s and with Jon Cousins on the Liberty Blake sessions in 2008. His recordings with The Onset continue to be released through Probe Plus, The Viper Label and Mike Badger’s Generator Label.
