Simone Simons (born 17 January 1985) is a Dutch singer-songwriter. She is best known for being the lead singer of Dutch symphonic metal band Epica, where she joined at the age of seventeen, releasing seven studio albums and touring the world. In her singing career, she has also collaborated with bands such as Kamelot, Leaves' Eyes, Primal Fear, Ayreon, and Angra.

When Simone was interviewed by Radio Metal France on November 14, 2007, she said she doesn't want Epica to be compared to Evanescence as they are different musically:[1]

Vin1.jpg I would not like to be compared to Evanescence because that is a rock group and is very commercial, and I think Epica still has more metal in it than rock music. Plus the fact that we have some really aggressive male vocals, it's just more complicated and Evanescence is more like pop rock band and Epica really belongs to the metal scene. Vin2.jpg

Simone posted on her social media accounts that she met Amy Lee at Rockwave Festival in Greece on July 2, 2017. Both Epica and Evanescence were performing at the festival.

Simone posted:[2]

Vin1.jpg We have more in common than we both thought. Both of us have boys, love food, glitter and Nightmare Before Christmas. That is just the short list. It was so nice that our paths have finally crossed and hopefully it will happen again soon. Vin2.jpg

Amy posted:[3]

Vin1.jpg Finally met the beautiful @smoonstyle at the show tonight! It's about time! Shared kid pics and glitter. Safe travels Simone, see you down on the road @epicaofficial. Vin2.jpg

Amy, Jen Majura and Simone all met again when Simone attended Evanescence's Synthesis Live show in Stuttgart, Germany on March 22, 2018.[4]

One of Simone's hobbies is photography, including portraits of other musicians. She photographed Jen Majura in December 2018.
