Artist Bio

The Counteracts from Kent, UK, are a collaboration between songwriters Simon J. Biscoe and Doug Smith. Simon first got into music whilst still at school, where he helped form The Contacts, and he has also played in a covers band, The Ghostriders. Simon now plays Bass, and enjoys writing songs on his own, and in collaboration with others.

Doug was a classically trained pianist as a child. Since 2010, he has been writing, recording and collaborating with various other musicians, contributing to Bands including GLAD, SilverSmith and The Contacts, as well as releasing his own music under the moniker Dag Smith.

The Counteracts first met in January 2015, and their initial intention was to record some original songs that Simon had in reserve, as a side-line to the Band they were in together. However, the reaction to their first two songs was so favourable, that they decided to record more original tracks and covers, and The Counteracts soon became their main focus. February 2018 saw the release of their first album, The Curse of The Counteracts, which contained 14 original tracks.
