Simone White is a singer and songwriter who performs deeply personal and engagingly idiosyncratic music informed by jazz, blues, folk, pop, and electronic influences. White has told journalists she didn't begin playing guitar until she was 22 years old, and didn't take the instrument seriously until she was 30, but by 2004 she'd become confident enough to record and self-release her first album, The Sincere Recording Co. Presents Simone White. Her debut was followed with I Am the Man (2007), Yakiimo (2009), and Silver Silver (2012), all of which were issued on the Honest Jon's label. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
