Born in Bonn, Simon Wahl studied pedagogical and artistic concert guitar at the Anton Bruckner Private University in Linz, graduating with distinction in 2015. Today he lives in Vienna and performs in many concerts both at home and abroad – in more than 500 in nine countries in recent years alone. He has also received several music awards, including the »Acoustic Grand Slam« in Freiburg. Wahl regularly plays with renowned guitarists such as Adam Rafferty, Thomas Leeb, and Don Ross at international guitar festivals. His speciality lies in eliciting sounds and tones from his guitar that are usually not necessarily associated with the instrument. As a »One Man Band«, Wahl combines virtuoso rhythms with soulful melodies, thus developing his own style: a crossover of pop, rock, hip hop, and flamenco.
