Simon Sammut

Composer, Bass

Simon Sammut commenced his musical journey at a tender age, delving into foundational studies that eventually propelled him to advanced levels of music education. Guided by his father Joseph, an accomplished bass player in his youth, Simon honed his bass playing skills. Under his father's tutelage, he not only mastered the instrument but also emerged as a sought-after bass player.
 
Transitioning swiftly from rock to genres such as blues, soul, funk, and jazz, Simon broadened his musical repertoire. His evolution extended to playing the upright bass. As a performer, Simon collaborated with eminent musicians, engaging in diverse musical endeavors. His proficiency in reading music and his versatile, eclectic taste rendered him an active participant in significant musical events. For an extended period, he contributed his talents to various musicians, bands, and orchestras, including the prestigious Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.
 
Beyond his role as a performer, Simon showcased his prowess as a composer, arranger, producer, and music teacher. In 2011, he marked a significant milestone with the production and release of his solo album, "BaSSic Attitude," a collaborative effort with multi-instrumentalist Alexander Kuzmin.
 
In 2017, Simon unveiled his second album, "Crossing," featuring twelve compositions and complementary paintings centered around the theme of 'crossing.' Collaborating with artist Anthony Catania, this project showcased Simon's artistic versatility.
 
Simon's influence extended globally, as he received an invitation from the Secretaría de Turismo y Cultura Morelos and the Centro Morelense De Las Artres in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico. Tasked with sharing his experiences and skills with the local musical artistic community, Simon, alongside collaborator Omar Vázquez, generated eight themes reflecting their musical tastes. The culmination of their collaboration resulted in the release of their first joint album, "Gravity," featuring musicians from both Malta and Mexico. The album traversed various sonorities and styles, including jazz fusion, funk, Latin, and world music. The eight compositions were premiered live in Mexico in April 2019
