Simon’s first single, ‘A Better Plan’, spent three weeks at number one in the Irish Top 30 and is now certified triple platinum. His second single, ‘Come Back To My Heart’ has also achieved platinum status and number 3 in the charts. Simon’s debut album ‘The Heart’ has achieved double platinum status and includes songs that were offered to him by Gary Barlow (Take That), Brian Kennedy, Ronan Keating and Wayne Hector (of ‘Flying Without Wings’ Fame).
Simon’s long awaited second album titled ‘Not Like Me’, released with Universal Ireland records label was released in March ’07 and has achieved Gold status. This album includes the hits Here Comes My Baby, I Still Believe in You and Hope For Me Yet.
