“For Simrit, singing is not a performance, it is a sacred worship of the Divine. Her voice, her music, and her teaching, reflect this devotion which seems to come from her so effortlessly. This devotion is a gift, a talent beyond any, that will lead thousands into the lightness of being and awareness that is so vital to humanity in this day and age.” …Snatam Kaur
“FIRST OF ALL, I’M SUCH A FAN OF SIMRIT. THE FIRST TIME I SAW HER LIVE I THOUGHT – WOW SHE’S KIND OF PUNK ROCK. I DON’T KNOW WHY I THOUGHT THAT, BUT THAT’S THE ELEMENT THAT DREW ME TO EXPLORING HER MUSIC.
HER SENSE OF MELODY IS DIFFERENT FROM A LOT OF THE OTHER CHANT ARTISTS AND HER ENERGY AND MUSICALITY SET HER APART. SOMETIMES WHEN I SING WITH HER, I THINK – THIS IS LIKE A POP SONG. THIS IS WHY I THINK SHE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRIDGE THE GAP OF POP/ROCK AND MANTRA MUSIC.
HER NEW SELF TITLED ALBUM, SIMRIT, IS FLAWLESS – MY FAVORITES BEING MUL MANTRA, REVOLUTION AND OF COURSE KUDRAT KAVAN.
SIMRIT, FOR ME, IS THE VOICE OF THIS NEW DAY AND AGE.”………BELINDA CARLISLE
Healing, Hypnotic, Mystical, and Majestic are just a few of the words that are frequented when describing the music of Simrit. Born to a Greek singer in Athens, Greece who wasn’t able to take care of children at the time, Simrit was adopted into the United States and was raised in South Carolina by another Greek family when she was just over a year old. She was steeped and studied in the mystical Byzantine music of Greece from a young age and also influenced by the classical and folk music of Greece. She also grew up expanded by the swirling sounds of Singh Kaur, Led Zeppelin, Mazzy Star, Bob Marley, Jeff Buckley, Loreena McKennitt, the devotional music of India and Africa, and many others. As a child she was joined and raised with a brother with special needs who was also adopted from a different family in Greece. With her unique upbringing with no one in her family that was blood related, Simrit learned at an early age that connection is incredibly deep and profound through the heart and soul. Her voice has been what she has always experienced as her true connection to herself and others. Simrit’s energy and music have a way of merging the soul, deeply touching people and understanding them.
Simrit is an independent artist who runs her own record label, Simrit Kaur Music. She has taken on all the roles of her label, and has recently formed a team that has been crucial in her growth and development. She has released three self-funded albums so far. Two of them have hit the iTunes Top World Charts, with her newest self-titled album reaching the #2 spot. A prolific artist with a deep and natural connection to melody, Simrit is currently working on her 4th album to be released in the summer of 2015. She will have released four albums in just five years. She tours the globe and has played throughout the USA, Mexico, Canada, China, Russia and she continues to travel to new countries to share her gifts of inspiration and healing through music. She is a Renaissance woman who revolutionizes mantra music and uses her music as a contribution for the gathering and healing of the people. “The Revolution is the courage to be who we really are…to speak our truth in the midst of fear…to be authentic, no matter what people may think or say. It is the strength to walk alone knowing we are not alone, and it is the strength to walk together, knowing together in our connection through the heart that we can make a difference in each other’s lives.”…Simrit

Simrit is a student, practitioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga/Naad Yoga (the science of sound and consciousness). She records, composes and produces music, tours with her band, and teaches workshops worldwide.
”The universe is powered by a central, cosmic vibratory sound. The useful part of this sound current is called the Naad. This is the mystic force revered by sages and yogis. Simrit has a rare and precious power: She can interlock and interrelate with this sound current and open spaces where prayers are answered.
Simrit sings from a place of spacious happiness and her voice carries the pure sounds of limitless joy and celestial blessings, the enchanting sounds of endless, wondrous possibility.”
