Meet Simone; she started singing from a very early age; as a kid, she would make up melodies all day long and built a good habit of making sure everyone in the house heard, brothers included. From a young age, singing and making music was something she started to feel passionate about, right around middle school, Simone knew this was something she needed to dive deeper into.
Simone sat for hours playing the piano she had at home, although she was very inexperienced she picked up a keen sense in playing rhythms she liked to listen to. When she found two chords that sound good together, she then began to sing over those and slowly started working her way into making music.
In high school, Simone decided to take formal lessons for voice and piano. She would spend hours working on music in a practice room tucked away beside her high school choir room; that room is where Simone built the foundation to her musical savvy.
By listening to a lot of Queen in high school, Simone undertook a lot of inspiration in learning to harmonize as she found her artistic grounding. Simone ended up going to College and studying vocal performance where she was able to continue to discover her grounding as an artist and pick up even more inspiration from increíble artists such as ‘Kimbra and Ingrid Michaelson.’
It was under the influence of these artists, where she perfected her lyrical storytelling capabilities and shaped her basis of risk-taking in music.
