Originally from Sweden, Simon Balthazar first made his mark as the songwriter and lead singer of the band Fanfarlo, which he formed after moving to London. Starting out on independent 7-inch labels, Fanfarlo grew to an international indie band who performed live on Late Show with David Letterman, contributed original music to the major film Twilight: Eclipse and were featured on several other notable film and TV soundtracks.

Simon is currently living in Mexico City. His recent projects include original music for commercials, the score of the dance performance C-RO commissioned by Adidas, and the score of the feature film El Vestido.
