STEVEN JOHN SIMON RELEASES VISUAL LYRIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “EYES CLOSED”

Watch the lyric video for "Eyes Closed" here,
NASHVILLE, TN. - (March 27, 2019) – Veteran Marine and Louisiana singer and songwriter, Steven John Simon, has released a visual and moving lyric video for his second single, “Eyes Closed.” The video is available on his Facebook page and can be watched on his artist YouTube page here.

“I really wanted the lyrics of this song to come to life and with this lyric video, I feel we really did that,” said Steven John Simon.  “Our media team used original clips from video captured by James Gilley of ProMotion LLC that we shot in Nashville for our official video.”

The evocative single is available on all digital music platforms
here.

“Eyes Closed” describes the attraction between a man and a woman whose paths cross at a bar. Not only is the attraction so strong that it pulls them towards each other, but there is also a deeper, immaterial connection that Simon could see with his eyes closed,” said Janeen Megloranzo, The Country Note. “The lyrics allow the listener to visualize the connection and desire between the two as Simon’s heartfelt and charming vocals bring those emotions to life.”

...’cause her lips landed there on mine and
I could see every move I made
When I ran my fingers up and down her skin
I knew this wasn’t our last first kiss
I saw it … yeah I saw it with my eyes closed
With my eyes closed…

About Steven John Simon:
Steven John Simon was discovered on social media platforms by an A&R Rep for
Heart Songs Records and was swiftly signed to a management production deal with the label. His social media growth is on fire.  Over the course of a few months he has developed a fan base of country music fans that are encouraging him to pursue his music. They want more! Steven was born and raised in Louisiana.  He is a family man and loves being a single father to his two children Navika & Cole. Steven works in the oil field as did his father and most of the men in his family. He ventured into the oil field after serving our country in the Marine Corps. He was stationed at Camp Pendleton  (California) for two years and then spent three years on security at the Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa & Singapore. Steven is currently a Subsea Engineer which includes the operation and maintenance of the Blowout Preventers (BOP's). Steven became interested in singing at the age of 20, but put his dream on the back burner to serve our country.  It was his daughters desire to start pursuing a career in music that led him to start pursuing his own dream. He wanted to lead by example and guide Navika in her own journey. "What a better way to help my daughter, than show her how it is done." They really are supportive of one another, they recently traveled together to audition for The Voice. Steven said recently in an interview,  "My main reason for pursuing it now is to show my kids that anything is possible if you WORK for it! No one will hand it to you, you have to make it happen." Steven released his first single, produced by Larry Beaird, "Tongue Tied" on 11.30.18 which made its debut on Itunes Hot Tracks. Steven’s second single, “Eyes Closed,” was released to all digital platforms on March 15.

THE FLORIDA AQUARIUM LEADS A MULTI-AGENCY EFFORT OF THE LARGEST GENETICALLY DIVERSE CORAL OUTPLANTING IN FLORIDA'S HISTORY

 

TAMPA, Fla., Tuesday, April 2, 2019- Beginning tomorrow and for the next week, The Florida Aquarium’s biologists and divers, in partnership with the Coral Restoration Foundation and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the University of Florida, Nova Southeastern University, and others will embark on an unprecedented conservation mission designed to help the Florida Reef Tract combat a rapidly spreading disease that can potentially put this animal at risk of extinction.
 
Over 3,000 unique genotype corals will be introduced to the Florida Reef Tract. These corals were created from eggs and sperm from the corals in Coral Restoration Foundation Coral Tree nursery, and reared at The Florida Aquarium. They will be outplanted into various specific locations as part of an unprecedented conservation mission.
 
The health of the Florida Reef Tract, which spans nearly 150 miles, from Key Biscayne through the Florida Keys, is the third largest coral barrier reef system in the world, and critical for the animals and people who depend on it. The reefs of the Florida Keys provide food and recreational opportunities for residents and vacationers alike, and protects coastal communities as a buffer for hurricanes and other storms. The economic impact of tourism related to the Florida Reef Tract generates $8.5 billion in economic activity and supports over 70,400 jobs.
 
Recognizing these high stakes, The Florida Aquarium will be leading the largest genetically diverse coral outplanting in Florida’s history along the Florida Reef Tract with many entities helping in this critical conservation initiative.
 
“The Florida Aquarium is proud to be leading this mission. We believe that spawning, rearing and introducing genetically diverse coral is our best hope for saving the Florida Reef Tract,” said Roger Germann, President and CEO, “We could not conduct an outplanting of this scale without the partnership we have with the Coral Restoration Foundation, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and others. This is a prime example of how working together is the key to restoring our Blue Planet.”
 
“Given the challenges facing our reefs, we recognize both the importance and complexity of restoring them,” said FWC Chairman, Robert Spottswood.  “Working together through innovative partnerships such as this one is the first step of many that will bring enhanced genetic diversity and resilience to our reefs.”
 
“We are excited to see these corals, spawned here at Coral Restoration Foundation and reared at The Florida Aquarium returned to our nurseries,” Scott Graves, COO said. “This is the most successful spawning and rearing of staghorn coral to date, and we’re extremely excited to continue to partner with The Florida Aquarium on the project.  These sexual recruits embody a significant increase in the genetic diversity of this imperiled species, and represent a big leap forward for coral reef restoration.”


*All research activities occurred within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and under permit.*
