Steven John Simon is what we refer to as a big jack in the box surprise! He was recently discovered through social media by an A&R Rep at Heart Songs Records and was swiftly signed to a management production deal with the label. His social media growth is on fire. Over the course of a few months he has developed a fan base of country music fans that are encouraging him to pursue his music. They want more!
Steven was born and raised in Louisiana. He is a family man and loves being a single father to his two children Navika & Cole. Steven works in the oil field as did his father and most of the men in his family. He ventured into the oil field after serving our country in the Marine Corps. He was stationed at Camp Pendleton (California) for two years and then spent three years on security at the Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa & Singapore. Steven is currently a Subsea Engineer which includes the operation and maintenance of the Blowout Preventers (BOP’s).
Steven became interested in singing at the age of 20 but put his dream on the back burner to serve our country. It was his daughters desire to start pursuing a career in music that led him to start pursuing his own dream. He wanted to lead by example and guide Navika in her own journey. “What a better way to help my daughter, then show her how it is done.” They really are supportive of one another, they recently traveled together to audition for The Voice.
Steven said recently in an interview, “My main reason for pursuing it now is to show my kids that anything is possible if you WORK for it! No one will hand it to you, you have to make it happen.”
Steven is currently working on song development and writing to begin working toward recording his first single in Nashville. Stay tuned everyone because this is going to be a fun ride for all of you.
