Simone Weber is a singer and musical artist whose voice and lyrics inspire her listeners. Her music is reflective and hope-filled with haunting tones that will tug at the heart. Simone has been inspired along the way by many including Bob Dylan, Mindy Smith, Joni Mitchell, Plumb, Amy Grant, Louis Armstrong, The David Crowder Band and Five for Fighting. Simone is pursuing music as an independent singer and songwriter. She trained in Nebraska, and refined her songwriting skills and expanded her network in New York City. Simone debuted at Madison Square Garden as a strolling musician and caroler in 'The Christmas Carol.' She also performed at other venues in New York such as the Kavehaz, the Bowery Poetry Club, The Triad Lounge, and Christ Church. New York City is great, but something deep in her soul compelled Simone to return with her husband to the Heartland in 2005 to establish her music career. She is performing, teaching, and recording across the state and region. Simone can be found on Sunday mornings and much of the week at First Lutheran Church in Omaha as the Director of Music Ministry. Besides her outstanding solo concerts which highlight her songwriting, Simone performs with Soli Deo Gloria Cantorum directed and established by the dynamic duo, Almeda and Jackson Berkey of Mannheim Steamrollers. As a soloist Simone provides music for weddings, funerals and other special events, teaches private voice, piano, drum, bass and guitar lessons, and has been a guest conductor and vocal coach for choirs in the area. If you are in need of any of these services, please contact Simone for more information.
