Songwriters:
Annelies Simon & Ben Simon

Annelies (singer) & Ben (musician, producer) have been writing music together since 2002 when they launched their band Silvermaker. The band’s catchy pop-rock tunes were placed on a computer game and numerous sports videos and DVDS – including for leading sports brand Animal UK – before being signed in a US album deal with Renaissance Digital Entertainment Group. Annelies went on to write electro pop songs with her band KOVAK, some of which were playlisted on Radio 2. More recently, the duo were invited to co-write a dance track with leading UK hitmakers Soulshaker (Audiofreaks) and their own music often finds its way into the corporate and creative videos they produce in their own video production company, Media Brighton Ltd. 

Annelies is currently co-writing tracks published to Warner Chapell Music  (production music collection). Ben has a number of tracks published to the Funky Junkies MCPS music library.

Ben and Annelies have been songwriting together for over 2 decades. While the production of some of the tunes showcased here may inevitably have dated, their strong melodies and dynamic song structures are timeless proof that this duo can craft commercial pop music.
