About Simon Collins’ new progressive rock band.
With 3 of his own albums under his belt Simon Collins, son of legendary musician Phil Collins, decided to try something he had always wanted to do. Having grown up on tour with Genesis, Simon had a rare and unique perspective that inspired him to eventually pursue his own music career. After a decade of writing, producing and promoting his solo material, Simon kept in touch with a handful of musicians with whom he had a strong connection and a rare chemistry. With a shared vision and strong musical bond they embraced what was clearly an organic evolution and decided to bring their creative forces together. That band is called “Sound of Contact”. At its core the band consists of Simon and co-producer/co-writer/keyboardist Dave Kerzner (Sonic Reality, Kevin Gilbert) and co-writer/guitarist/bassist as Matt Dorsey with the addition of such great co-writers and musicians as guitarist/bassist Kelly Nordstrom and guest vocalist Hannah Stobart (Rocket Moth, Wishing Tree).

Sound of Contact’s debut album “Dimensionaut” is a concept album about a dimensional time and space traveler who is on a mission to expand the boundaries of the human experience. The album features a wide range of styles and dynamics from dark and mysterious progressive rock to nostalgic classic rock to high energy alternative to sci-fi film score-infused “space rock”.
