Twenty-first century composer Klaus Schulze once said, "The human voice is the first and most natural musical instrument, also the most emotional." The stirring, soulful voice of Dallas/Fort Worth independent singer and songwriter Simone Nicole moves beyond "happy" or "sad" and illuminates a broad range of emotion for her listeners.
Simone first found her voice singing with her parents at an early age. She learned to play the drums and formed her first band in 2004. As she grew, so did her interest in music, especially singing and songwriting. A
self-taught guitarist, Simone started playing open mic nights in 2008 and quickly expanded to performing along side other local artists regularly at coffee houses, restaurants, bars, country clubs, and house parties.
2011 saw the release of Simone's first self-written and produced EP "Hanging on a Cloud." That same year she began performing at larger venues like the House of Blues in Dallas, The Kessler Theatre, and Keller Fest in nearby Keller, Texas. Since then, Simone has moved to Switzerland, Nashville, and then back to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex where she presently lives.
Throughout this journey, she continued to write passionate and creative music as well as perform also
co-written with artists like Matthew Perryman Jones, Crystal Yates, Joshua Mather, Brett Manning, and Michael Glenn.
Simone is currently working with Tim Phelan, Brendan Gilman, Drew Harakal, Brook Wallace, and others on a new album, which will be released in 2017.
