Brian Simpson

Keyboardist and composer Brian Simpson is a sought-after studio musician and musical director who has regularly crossed from jazz to pop and R&B. Raised in Gurnee, Illinois, Simpson grew up in a musical family and eventually earned his music degree from Northern Illinois University. After graduating, he relocated to Los Angeles, where he found work performing with such artists as Boney James, Norman Brown, and Everette Harp. This led to stints touring with a variety of pop artists, including Janet Jackson and Teena Marie.

In 1991, Simpson garnered more attention after co-writing Surface's number one hit R&B single "The First Time." As a studio musician, Simpson has worked with such artists as Stanley Clarke, Kirk Whalum, and George Duke. Since the late '90s, he has acted as musical director for saxophonist Dave Koz. Simpson has released several albums as a solo artist, including 1995's Closer Still and 2005's It's All Good. Two years later, Simpson delivered the album Above the Clouds.

In 2013, Simpson released Just What You Need, featuring guest appearances by Gerald Albright, Marc Antoine, Elan Trotman, and Jonathan Butler. Out of a Dream followed two years later. In 2016, Simpson returned with his seventh solo effort, and fourth for the Shanachie label, Persuasion. The album featured performances with a cast of smooth jazz luminaries including saxophonist Boney James, guitarist Peter White, bassist Axel Al, and others. ~ Matt Collar

South Beach was the first to get my attention and then saw him perform with Dave Koz and friends Christmas tour a few years ago in Fort Lauderdale. Had the opportunity to talk to him then and since I am hooked on his creations! Love them all.

Honestly I had never heard of Brian Simpson but now that I have listen to his music, I think I'm in love. His music is soooo soothing and relaxing. I can just listen to him ALL day. I thought I was in love with Al Jerrau but Al you have some competition in my heart. Brian I love your music.

I can't remember the 1st. time i heard his music, but i like his style. Saw him early in May at the Metrowest Jazz Fest in Orlando. It was a free event. He gave his best, he flowed like it was a paid concert. I'd pay to see him again.
