Simone’s dual career in music and theatre has taken her across Asia, Europe and The States. She recently returned to her hometown of Perth, following 20 years working out of London as a singer, songwriter and actress. Simone has performed in Europe’s most prestigious venues, including Ronnie Scotts, Yacht Club de Monaco, Houses of Parliament and Australia House. She has a presence born of leading roles on the West End stage & International tours of Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Dirty Dancing and Hello Dolly! Having already played the Edinburgh Fringe & London Jazz Festival, Simone was thrilled to make her Perth Fringe World debut last month, with a love letter to her namesake and idol, the inimitable Dr Nina Simone.
