JD Simo releases “That’s When You Know That You’re Down”

Critically acclaimed guitarist and vocalist, JD Simo, today releases his second single “That’s When You Know That You’re Down” from his upcoming LP, Mind Control. The upcoming album releases on November 5, 2021.

“That’s When You Know That You’re Down” is a soulful, guitar-focused track that calls back to JD’s influences from the psychedelic rock era of the 60s and 70s. JD’s use of reverb gives the song a gritty, raw sound, which is also matched by his vocal stylings. The fast-paced, improv style drums give the song a jazz-like sound, showcasing JD and his band’s ability to seamlessly merge multiple genres of music together. The song is rife with impressive guitar solos, right up until it fades out.

The new single follows the release of “Know It All”, the first song released from JD’s upcoming album Mind Control. The song is currently playing at radio stations across the country.

Mind Control, due out on November 5, was created during the lockdown in 2020, after JD Simo would play music live weekly on his social media accounts. These virtual performances inspired him to create these new tracks in a makeshift studio with his long-time collaborator, Adam Abrashoff, whose skills are featured on the drums, a highlight in this new single.

JD is currently on a co-headlining tour with Boston based blues band GA-20.
