ABOUT

Dina Simone is a bad ass. She also likes dinosaurs, pizza and space, not in any particular order. She’s got a dog named ‘Snots’ that will eat your dog. She rides a pink Haro BMX bike and trains with ninjas, among other things. They call her “Mean-a”. She does not fu*k around.

In 2019, the Dance Bullies bassist steps out as a solo artist after playing a decade of shows with Midwest soul band, The Reverent Few (featuring Paige DeChausse of American Idol), Neo-Grunge trio Dead Original, Latinx singer songwriter ManCub and folk-grunge rockers Murder City Saints.

Rumor has it Simone specializes in making booties bounce and titties shake, brutally honest break-up songs and reimagined renditions of 90s hip-hop hits. Well, that’s true. But the Chicago soul singer and multi-instrumentalist doesn’t stop there. Simone’s genre-crossing vibe fits a wide range of bills — from indie rap-rock to acoustic singer-songwriter shows, and more.
