Since breaking through in 2014 with his Grammy-nominated Metamodern Sounds in Country Musicalbum, Sturgill Simpson has established himself as a daring and acclaimed artist, with a strong singular vision. His music stretches across genres and styles, from the psychedelic soul of 2016’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth (Grammy nominated for Album of the Year and winner for Best Country Albumto the fuzzed-out rock attack of Sound & Fury in 2019.

Simpson debuted in 2013 with his independent release High Top Mountain. He made his acting debut in the CBS All Access series $1 and has appeared in several movies, including Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die (for which he also wrote and performed the theme song), and had a pivotal role in the award-winning Queen & Slim.  The Sound & Fury album was accompanied by a ground-breaking anime film (an interest Simpson picked up during his years in the Navy), on Netflix.  Simpson also remains committed to philanthropy, supporting such non-profit organizations as the Special Forces Foundation, The Equity Alliance and MusicCares.
