Simone is a singer & songwriter mixing old school soul influences with a bit of funk. Simone is what you would call “raw talent”. She knew she had something special when people expected to hear something entirely different to what they saw! As a UK soul singer Simone knew she could let her voice do the talking.
As a songwriter Simone writes not just for herself but also for other singers including up and coming artists. Internationally, Simone has travelled the world using her outstanding talent taking her as far as Bermuda, America and all over Europe. Her enthusiastic and effervescent live performances is where she really shines.
Blessed with a three octave range and soulful, heartfelt vocals can captivate an audience no matter how large or small. She feels at home on a stage in front of thousands and just as comfortable performing intimately to a room of 50 people. Her live performances are something not to be missed.
