Vibraphonist, producer, composer, and bandleader, Simon Moullier has distinguished himself as one of the leading voices of his generation. After studying classical percussion with Hedy Réjiba in Nantes (France) extensively throughout his formative years in France, he quickly became recognized for his entirely new approach and sound on the instrument. Moullier went on to complete an undergraduate degree from Berklee College of Music where he was mentored by trumpeter Darren Barrett and pianist Danilo Perez followed by a Master’s degree from the Thelonious Monk Institute where he studied with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter & Jimmy Heath.

He has since shared the stage with such jazz luminaries as Herbie Hancock, Gerald Clayton, Logan Richardson, and is featured on recording with Mark Turner, Kendrick Scott, Miguel Zenon, Dayna Stephens. Simon is an active touring musician, having performed worldwide at many of the most-respected jazz clubs and festivals, including Blue Note Tokyo/Beijing, Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center NYC, The International Jazz Day Festival in Cuba and Russia.

In the fall 2020, he releases his debut album “Spirit Song” on the New York City label Outside In Music. He follows up less than a year after, in June 2021, with his standards Trio Album “Countdown” on Fresh Sound Records.
Besides his work as a performer, Moullier is an active educator and spent many hours doing community outreach in Cuba, Indonesia, Panama and India.
