C-Mone states that one of her earliest memories is being 3 years old, singing and dancing constantly around the house and outside on the street for the neighbours and other kids. During her childhood C-Mone loved reading, dancing and performing. When in her teen years she was shy but still took part in school performances. At 16 C-Mone was taken to the Community Recording Studio/CRS by a friend to take part in a singing workshop - “I was really interested in getting into the music business - a adamant 6 year old Simone had vowed ” I’ll never be the artist mate! I’ll be the a manager cause I don’t wanna be treated like a peace of meat! I guess i’ll try and do some buisness, make music and avoid the other”. Through going to the studio she meet artist Manager Big Trev, engineer Courtney Rose and producer / singer songwriter Nick Stezz - C-Mone then chilled in the studio for a year doing a bit of sound engineering, song writing and voluntary work. Once C-Mone started writing songs it got deep,”I was writing about seven songs a week - a recognised song writer in the studio I wrote for singers, but wanted to push the lyrical”. In 1997 she saw some guys in a cipher, being a tomboy C-Mone saw the ultimate lyrical challenge and part feminist quest, “I’ve been rhyming since”.
C-Mone Spent 4 years in outdaviille 1997- 2002 appearing on records and performed around the country. Being 21 C-Mone decided it was time to step up, go to a next level - solo femcee land.
