Simon Driscoll

Originally a classically trained pianist, Simon created 5 By 5 Music in 2011 as an all-inclusive music tutoring company.
After joining forces with Jen in 2015, they started to develop it into a more musical theatre focused area.

Later in 2011 he teamed up with local charity Spotlight UK and has since gone on to produce and direct a host of different musicals and shows.

Simon is the front man in folk/rock band Burnt Tomorrow who formed in 2009 and have released two studio albums - My First Mistake and Fractured Time.
He has also released a solo piano album titled Hope Shines Through.

In the last few years, Simon has written original compositions for many different platforms, including short films, websites, and stage shows.

In 2017, he and Jen came together to create Tomorrow Bird; a now award-winning folk duo.

He also has a Youtube review channel for musical instruments - the modestly named Average Reviews From An Average Guy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jen Bird

A former theatre actress, Jen played lead roles in Jesus Christ Superstar, Godspell and The King & I, before being happily bitten by the songwriting bug! She began working with producer Ivan Anchant and never looked back...
Jen's debut album 'Let Life In' picked up radio play in both the UK and USA and she has featured on shows such as BBC Introducing Berkshire and the Rhythm & Roots Show on Castle Radio.

A passionate advocate for mental health awareness, Jen went on to release the charity single ('Shout at the Dark') to raise funds for SANE UK. She also co-hosted a podcast by the same name with DJ Dave Mann.
In 2017, Jen and Simon teamed up to form the acoustic folk-duo, Tomorrow Bird. Following the release of their debut single, Jen and Simon were delighted to receive the 2017 GSMC Music Award for Best Duo.

That same year, following a worldwide search, Jen was hand-picked by famed composer Yasunori Mitsuda to be the lead singer on Nintendo's Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The much-anticipated game launched the same day as Jen's latest album ('If Walls Could Sing') and has since gone onto sell over a million copies worldwide.
