Georgetown Guyana in South America, is a potpourri of cultural influences and is traditionally referred to as the Garden City. If one is seriously talking about music in Guyana that conversation must include the name of Burchmore Simon; a leader and innovator in a country that has serious limitation in the scope for music development.


Burch, as founder and leader of one of the country's most popular bands-EC Connection- has survived 16 years as a professional musician in any sense applied to that phase.


His exploits include touring, writing, producing and arranging compositions that always left an impression on his audience, in Europe, North America and the Caribbean. He has shared the stage with such notables as Byron Lee, Sanchez and Crossfyah.


He is always somewhere in any major development effort for Guyanese music and has made unselfish contributions to this cause. As one of Guyanas' leading bass player's he accompanied calypso contestants in the national competition and the Home Care effort that took a group of calypsonians to Barbados to record at the Blue Wave Studios.


In 1993, against insurmountable odds he released the first packaged album by a Guyanese group at home, the song "Number One Lady" from that effort became a household favourite across Guyana and propelled the band EC Connection into an overseas market.
