    In August 2015 he produced and starred in his new show, 'The Courage of a Dreamer' LIVE, at London's historic, The Pheasantry. Reuniting with long-term musical director Julian Kelly, and joined by Sarah Bowler on cello and Nick Walsh on bass, this concert was staged to celebrate Simon's debut album release of the same name. West End favourite, Rosie Ladkin, and Dr Paul Whittaker OBE guested.

Guest starring recording artist Justine Balmer, West End star Kim Ismay, and Dr Paul Whittaker OBE. Simon performed with his trio of musicians and backing singers, 'The Awesome Foursome'.
