Event Description

Healing, Hypnotic, Mystical, and Majestic are just a few of the words that are frequented when describing the music of Simrit.  Born to a Greek singer in Athens, Greece who wasn’t able to take care of children at the time, Simrit was adopted into the United States and raised in South Carolina by another Greek family when she was just over a year old.  She was steeped and studied in the mystical Byzantine music of Greece from a young age and also influenced by the classical and folk music of Greece.  She also grew up expanded by the swirling sounds of Singh Kaur, Led Zeppelin, Mazzy Star, Bob Marley, Jeff Buckley, Loreena McKennitt, the devotional music of India and Africa, and many others.

As a child she was joined and raised with a brother with special needs who was also adopted from a different family in Greece. With her unique upbringing with no one in her family that was blood related, Simrit learned at an early age that connection is incredibly deep and profound through the heart and soul.  Her voice has been what she has always experienced as her true connection to herself and others.  Simrit’s energy and music have a way of merging the soul, deeply touching people and understanding them.

Simrit is an independent artist who runs her own record label, Simrit Kaur Music.  She has taken on all the roles of her label, and has recently formed a team that has been crucial in her growth and development.  She has released three self-funded albums so far. Two of them have hit the iTunes Top World Charts, with her newest self-titled album reaching the #2 spot.  A prolific artist with a deep and natural connection to melody, Simrit is currently working on her 4th album to be released in the summer of 2015. She will have released four albums in just five years.  She tours the globe and has played throughout the USA, Mexico, Canada, China, and she continues to travel to new countries to share her gifts of inspiration and healing through music.  She is a Renaissance woman who revolutionizes mantra music and uses her music as a contribution for the gathering and healing of the people.  

“The Revolution is the courage to be who we really are. To speak our truth in the midst of fear. To be authentic, no matter what people may think or say. It is the strength to walk alone knowing we are not alone, and it is the strength to walk together in the unknown. And knowing together in our true connection through the heart that we can make a difference in each other’s lives." -Simrit
