While widely acclaimed in the music industry, UK artist Mick Simpson's work is little known to the rest of the music world. While performing in the early 1980s, he was spotted by Elkie Brooks, who signed him up to tour in her band Vinegar Joe. BBC Radio One’s Tommy Vance spoke to Mick backstage after a gig, and began playing Mick’s original instrumental tracks on The Friday Night Rock Show. In the 1990s, John Parr, of ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ fame, featured him on his album, Man With A Vision. In addition, Mick won the 2004 International Song Writers Award, sponsored by The Brit Awards.

In June 2005, Mick guested at the 80th birthday of Blues legend BB King, and has also played alongside guitar greats such as Gary Moore and Snowy White.
