Biography

Simone showed an inclination toward drumming when she asked for a drumset at the age of 2. She finally got her first full kit when she was 5 and played her first live show when she was only 7. Since then, Simone has played in several venues in Florida, Atlanta, and Los Angeles with several band projects. She’s currently the drummer in the Atlanta School of Rock Houseband. Simone’s other passion is acting. She can be seen on TV in the mini-series Manhunt:Unabomber and will be on the big screen in Disney's feature film "Jungle Cruise" in 2020. She has also been featured in a Corey Smith music video as well as national and regional commercials. In late 2018, at the age of 14, Simone explored merging both her passions, drumming and acting, by posting drum covers with her own unique expressive style on social media. These have been well received by other professional musicians and fans around the world of all ages. She loves playing all styles of rock music and continues to strengthen her skills as a well rounded musician with plans for her own band and original music. In her free time, Simone enjoys being a teenager by cooking, vintage shopping, hanging out with friends, volunteering with people with autism, collecting vinyl records, and eating chocolate.
