For fans av Conor Oberst, The Mountain Goats, Songs:Ohia

"Omaha has given us the reigning heir to Henry Miller's dark emotional mirror, Townes Van Zandt's three-chord moan, and Lou Reed's warehouse minimalism: His name is Simon Joyner." – Gillian Welch

Simon Joyner fra Omaha, Nebraska har gitt ut musikk siden starten av 90-tallet. Beck hadde Joyner på sin personlige topp 10 når Rolling Stone Magazine spurte. Den berømte BBC vert og DJ John Peel, som hadde en regel om bare å spille en låt per artist spilte hele Simon Joyners album "The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll" (1994) på radioen og den innflytelse Joyner har hatt på Conor Oberst sin stil er fort tydelig når du lytter til musikken deres.

“Pound for pound Simon Joyner is my favorite lyricist of all time. He has shades of all the greats (Van Zandt, Cohen, Dylan) but exists in a space all his own. Since I first heard his music at the tender age of twelve not a year has passed that I haven’t waited for and been rewarded with an amazing Simon Joyner release of one kind or another. This year is no exception. He truly is an American songwriting treasure. It is my hope that more people will discover his music and
share in the unique joy that it brings.” – Conor Oberst

I oktober gir Simon Joyner ut albumet "Step Into the Earthquake" på Badabing (Julie Byrne, Beirut, Sharon Van Etten).

På Folken spiller han i trioformat og David Nance blir med som support.
