Paul Simmons has co-written a number of works on Naomi Bedford’s album ‘Tales From the Weeping Willow’ and is continuing to build on his decades of success as chief songwriter and band member for the British Folk Rock Legends ‘The Men They Couldn’t Hang’. Paul brings a wealth of talent and experience to Perfectly Formed Songs.
Naomi is an accomplished and respected song writer and artist. With a broad writing range, her collaborations span the musical spectrum, from Oribital’s dance hit ‘Funny Break’ to her own much acclaimed folk album ‘Tales From the Weeping Willow’. Tales from The Weeping Willow is now at no 3 in the Amazon Traditional Folk Chart and no 4 Modern Folk Chart. Described as ‘An English Emmylou’ by Justin Currie (Del Amitri), ‘Dreamy Fantastic Voice’ by Peter Buck (REM) and ‘Intoxicating’ Chris Difford (Squeeze) Naomi is definitely one writer to be following closely.
