Woodstock singer-songwriter Simi Stone's “Mountain Motown” can’t be contained in a single word or sentence. She plays violin, guitar and percussion and boasts a huge, versatile voice. She writes catchy pop tunes, dance numbers, and compelling, introspective folk songs. The multi-talented multi-instrumentalist tours with Simone Felice’s band, the Duke and the King, and has performed with Denis Leary’s band on Conan O’Brien’s TV show.
Simi's alluring presence has been engaged in the services of videos and album art for Metallica and Cornershop, and she’s a dynamic performer both in the recording studio (check out her YouTube video for “Fear the Beat”) and onstage, no doubt owing in some part to her early experience in musical theater and off-Broadway.
Simi Stone has led a variety of bands, including Slithy Toves and “Afro-Punk” group Suffrajet, and shared stages with the Roots, Erykah Badu, Conor Oberst, Natalie Merchant, Cheap Trick, Urge Overkill, and Joan Jett.
Her upcoming solo album, for which she raised over $8,000 from fans in a Kickstarter campaign, features drummer Zack Alford (Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Vernon Reid), bassist Sara Lee (Gang of Four, B-52s, Ani DiFranco), and noteably, bassist Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Tears for Fears).
