“I am honored to know Simon and inspired by his work in telling the story of immigrants. Recently, we have been bombarded by images and stories of the disjunture of race, power, fear and access in modern America; however, Simon’s work is a jumping-off point for a new conversation to be had that addresses racism and its wide-ranging effects.
Justin Chin

I have never met anyone who is as passionate about improving the lives of the impoverished and underserved as Simon. He just deeply cares about people, and it shows. His work with the Asian community is inspiring, dedicated, and thought provoking. ”

“Simon Tam’s book “How to Get Sponsorships and Endorsements” gives a thorough explanation at how to create successful Partnerships. As a solo musician/entrepreneur I knew it would be crucial for me to learn both the business aspect of music and the entertainment side. Simon’s book taught me how to analyze the details of my proposal before approaching potential business partners. After studying his examples I became armed with knowledge and confidence in discussing my ideas . His book emphasizes the importance of preparation and how to properly approach ideal companies. He accomplishes this by asking the reader thought provoking questions, which make his book extremely useful and immediately applicable. His methods teach the reader to develop strong, successful business relationships; he even provides real life examples which prove extremely helpful to the novice. It’s all about selling yourself as a professional. Every musician should own a copy of Tam’s book.

“No other band in Portland has cultivated its image quite as well as the synthy dance-pop quartet The Slants. Embracing Asian-American heritage while flipping the bird to stereotypes (the band’s name itself co-opts a racial slur into a positive)….Pageantry, the band’s latest album, advances the group’s mystique, with a healthy jolt of hard rock that further proves The Slants’ mass appeal and staying power.”

Simon adds value and experience to any organization but most importantly, the willingness to help and care for the people around him is by far the most extraordinary”
