He told MarkMeets: “I’m so fired up with this new track as it’s the one from the new album with all the energy which I hope will uplift people out of the winter blues. While writing the hook line on the train and missed my station for the studio session by 5 stops :)”
“As an artist it great to get the opportunity to be part of a song that clearly portrays your influences which Jackie Wilson & The Motown Sound !!”
Si’s last 2 singles were play listed on Radio 2 and magic and Si performed at some of the biggest festivals in the UK including the Radio 2 event proms in the Park.

Si has been a leader on the Vintage scene for the last few years, heading Twinwood and Atomic festival and now he is crossing over in to the mainstream.
