Simon House

Simon House

Simon House (born 29 August 1948 in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England) is a composer and classically-trained violinist and keyboard player, perhaps best known for his work with space rock band Hawkwind.

Prior to Hawkwind, House played in High Tide, a band he helped form, and the Third Ear Band, who contributed the soundtrack to Roman Polanski's "Macbeth". He joined Hawkwind in 1974, playing on some of their classic albums, before leaving for David Bowie's band in 1978.

Along with other Hawkwind members, he guested on science fiction author Michael Moorcock's "New World's Fair" in 1975 and has also played on solo projects by former Hawkwind members Robert Calvert and Nik Turner.

Since the 1970s, as well as playing in a re-formed High Tide, and rejoining Hawkwind during 1989-91 and 2001-03, House has released albums under his own name.
