Fonia Session 56 – Ian Simmonds


On one of those beautiful sunny days were pigeons make out and families of foxes stroll to the next beach, we had a long-distance call with Ian Simmonds, straight out of Brighton/UK.

Ian talked with us about all the things which are on top of his mind these days, new releases how to survive as an active artist in days of lockdown and we chatted a bit around his experiences in and with Japan.

Enjoy a carefully curated mix set of rare jewels and unreleased material. Thank you all for listening, stay healthy and be good to yourself!
