South African Neo-soul / Neo-folk music artist Simmy. has carved out a distinctive position in the music industry. She’s one of the country’s future biggest stars. She has not only performed to thousands of fans, she also writes and co-produces some of her own material.
Simmy started writing music in primary school and composed the songs with her friends who were also her fellow school choir mates at the time, she recalls. “I sometimes didn’t even understand the depth of the words I was putting down on paper, I just wanted to write, compose my own music and sing” she adds. That’s when she thought to herself maybe she actually belongs on stage.
