We’re excited to be welcoming Simone Felice back to the Deaf Institute!

Recorded at Sun Mountain Studios in bucolic Boiceville, NY with his longtime friend and collaborator, producer/arranger David Baron, All The Bright Coins sees Simone Felice working both sides of the glass, having spent much of the past half-decade earning acclaim as a frontline producer with credits including The Lumineers, Matt Maeson, Bat For Lashes, Connor Oberst, Phoebe Bridgers and many more.

Dark and melancholic yet life-affirming and incandescent, the album surveys the remarkable breath and reach of Felice’s artistry, from its intimate, deeply personal songcraft to a visionary sonic approach that features backing from the Felice Brothers, Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden and The Webb Sisters.

Having earned worldwide applause as a master storyteller for his work as a solo artist, founding member of the Felice Brothers, and acclaimed poet-memoirist, Felice taps into something heretofore unexplored on finely etched songs such as Puppet and No Tomorrows, the latter of which sees him revisiting a truly traumatic event from his youth – a cerebral aneurism that saw the 12-year-old Felice declared dead for several minutes on an emergency room table in Kingston NY and left him in intensive care, relearning basic motor skills, for more than two months.

The album further includes a quartet of evocative spoken word tracks, hearkening back to Felice’s own early experiences as a slam poet at NYC’s legendary Nuyorican Poets Café in the 1990s. Richly rewarding, literate, and personally redemptive, All The Bright Coins stands as a landmark work in Simone Felice’s already stacked catalogue, a breathtakingly crafted celebration of life, song, and the universal power of words and stories within both.
