MUSICIENS SANS FRONTIÉRES play alternative rock world pop; an exhilirating mix of edgy rock fused with world beats.
MSF was created in 2005 by NYC - based musician-composer-filmmaker Thomas Simon, who, as Ischler Woche (Austria) says "has reached a lot of acclaim with his experimental progressive fusions..."
MSF is co-fronted by singer-songwriter-actress Jillie Simon who "has been garnering rave reviews and probably more than her share of stalkers..." said CMJ New Music Report.
The powerful rhythm section of Alex Alexander on drums and Keith Golden on bass (last touring and recording with Dido), adds infectiously danceable grooves.
Thomas' sound had previously been compared to Love & Rockets, Dead Can Dance, Sonic Youth, Nine Inch Nails & Moby, while Jillie has earned comparisons to Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Sophie B. Hawkins...
