SIMON SWINKELS

For my 16th birthday my parents bought me a classical guitar and I've been playing ever since. 

In januari 2018 I joined The Compounds. It is my main musical project. I have the space to be creative and write music, which I enjoy the most.
Next to The Compounds I follow a study in jazz and perform in jazz projects. 

Jazz, rock and everything in between is what I play and what I'm inspired by. Guitarists such as Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Jimmy Bruno, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy page, Gary Clark jr, Lenny Kravitz, Slash, Brian May, Randy Rhoads, Paul Gilbert and surely many more have all had impact on my playing.
