An American Tale is Simpleton Music Production's upcoming project. Led by producer James Stapleton, An American Tale will be a modern mix of Folk, Americana, and Indie-Rock with an emphasis on passionate rather than pandering writing.

The first self-titled record is an exploration of Stapleton's struggles with happiness and his journey to self actualization.

At the moment the band solely consists of Stapleton playing all roles, from guitar to drums to cello, but as the project progresses, he hopes to add more bodies and minds to the group.
