Simmy On How She Met Sun-EL & Why She Fuses Music Genres

Songtress Simmy who is signed under Sun-EL Musician’s record label opened up about how she met her label boss also the inspiration behind her juggling genres.

“I’ve learnt so much, especially that it’s not just about the music. It’s about understanding the business part of it.
“Before I was very shy and not confident about my work. That was like a year ago.
“Now I believe in my songwriting and when I sing to people they enjoy it. Just my experience with dealing with a large crowd has built a lot of confidence in me.”

Simmy, 24, is the youngest of four kids.

“I was raised by parents that are very strict, they are very old and not like your typical young parents,” she says.

“The reason my sound is inspired by old-school music is because my dad loved a lot of maskandi and country music. My brother brought that side of R&B and house music.”

And here’s how she met Sun-EL :

“We met back in 2013 through his younger brother. He asked me to sing for him and he asked why don’t we work on something. But at the time I knew I needed to finish my degree. After finishing my degree I moved to Joburg,” she recounts.
