LIVE AT TAKE ROOT released from Groningen, NL

Recorded live at the prestigious Take Root Festival in Groningen, The Netherlands on October 6th, 2007 on Simmons’ second European Tour. He is accompanied by Alex McCollough on pedal steel guitar.
Live at Take Root
Rounder Europe Records released Simmons’ SOMETHING IN BETWEEN album (released in USA in early 2008) to European audiences in the Fall of 2007 and this Festival Performance was part of that tour that took him from The Netherlands, to Belgium and The United Kingdom to promote it’s release. Rounder Europe had released DRINK RING JESUS in the Spring of 2007 as well as re-released Simmons’ LAST CALL (2004 USA release), thus the majority of the songs from this live show are from those first three Simmons’ albums (plus the then unreleased ‘Asheville Girl’ & “Hadley’s Bend’ that later appeared on studio albums GIRLS & THE BIG SHOW).

Simmons is accompanied by sideman, Alex McCollough on pedal steel guitar.
Edited and Mastered by Alex McCollough at Yes Master in Nashville, TN

2 Live Streaming Shows on STAGE IT: April 3rd, 2013

Stage ItApril 16th Two Stage It Shows Live Online:

4:30pm & 8pm Central Standard Time

An early day (for me in Nashville) show for Euro friends & later one for USA fans.  It’s “Pay what you want” ticket



The Stage It platform enables me to play live from my living room to yours.  Many of you live in Towns and Countries I don’t get too often enough.  This way you can message me and make requests, hear new songs, and have a “house show” from your own home.  Stage It requires an initial $5 of credit to sign up (requires credit card or paypal), but you don’t have to pay or tip that to me.  You can use it for other shows later (even mine), or pay an amount you choose to watch and even tip if you feel like it.

See you online.  ~SS

‘GIRLS’ now available on CD

GIRLS album from 2009: Finally available in Compact Disc format:

This album was recorded acoustically with Richard McLaurin adding pedal steel, dobro, b-3 organ, mandolin and guitar.  We did this as a follow up to Something In Between, which we’d worked on the year before.  My record label at the time decided not to release it, so instead I just made it available on iTunes.  But many people have asked me over the years to issue it on CD…so after a long wait it is now available through my website or at my shows (soon it will be on Amazon, CD Baby, etc as well)
