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 is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90's alongside contemporaries mining similar territory like Will Oldham, Peter Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, and Bill Callahan. Joyner was championed early by the late British DJ, John Peel, who famously played Joyner's 1994 LP, "The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll", start to finish on one of his BBC programs, initially making Joyner more well known overseas than in his own country. He is often referred to as one of the forefathers of the Omaha music scene.

Following the mercurial path of heroes like Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Joyner has been releasing literate and challenging albums since the release of his first album, Room Temperature, in 1993. His discography includes twenty-three full-length recordings, as well as numerous singles and guest appearances. A book of his lyrics was released in 2016 under the title "Only Love Can Bring You Peace: Selected Lyrics (1990-2014)." He tours the United States and Europe semi-regularly and is the co-owner of the Grapefruit Records label.
