Autograph’s Simon Daniels Discusses New Album, His Journey From Brazil To LA, And Having Kids 10/3/2022



Simon Daniels is the singer and a guitar player for long-running band, Autograph. They exploded on the scene in the mid-80’s with their classic hit, “Turn Up The Radio,” but by 1989 the band had called it quits. Fast forward to 2013 and we find a reunion being orchestrated, but original singer Steve Plunkett declines the offer – enter Simon Daniels.

Since Simon accepted the position, the band has found great success playing festivals, cruises, and theaters, as well as recording new music. The band has a new single called “This Ain’t The Place I Wanna Be,” which is being very well received, and the band is set to release a new record called Beyond on the Frontiers Records label, and it will drop on November 11, 2022.

In this interview, Simon talks about coming to Los Angeles from his home country of Brazil in 1985. He tells us about his former bands, joining Autograph in 2013, making this new record, the passing of bandmate and dear friend Randy Rand, and the prospect of having children.
