Fresh Face: G Simone

5 MINUTES WITH G SIMONE
An O.G. #GirlBoss In The Entertainment Industry


By Calynn M Lawrence




Have you ever met someone that was cool beyond their age? Someone that spoke such truths and packed such a punch that you could not help but admire them? I have. That’s Miss G Simone. She’s every bit of awesome with a slither of street and somehow that comes together as the fabulousness that is her persona. This article is just a quick 5 minute interview that I had with her.


Who are you? GSimone is a music industry maven, who’s career has roots stemming back to the nineties. I have released many well received projects such as my songs “I Know, You Know” and “Music For The 90’s.” My EP, “My Music, Your Conversation”, revealed a sultry and
melodic sound that is quintessential old school R&B.


Today  I reimagine my musical vision through Hip Hop / EDM on my new single “Queen From the Ghetto.” This track is far more than sonically pleasing, it has a message. “Queen From The Ghetto” embodies my mission to uplift and encourage people to thrive, regardless of background; all while providing an up-tempo beat and catchy lyrics you can dance to.


Introduce yourself in 3 sentences or less? Often praised for her complex lyricism and unique voice, Simone G. Parker—perhaps better known as “GSimone”—is a singer, songwriter, producer, executive and entrepreneur.  


Why did you get started doing music?  When I was 16, I would always sing in the car around my friends and they would say “you have a nice voice.” So, by 19 I was writing poetry and songs then I started recording with a guy named Sam who I worked with at an insurance company in Queens. We did a few songs and videos and sent the music to several Record Companies, most were rejections or just no response. I would continue to write for several years after.


What is your favorite thing about doing music? Writing songs. I envelop myself into a story and imagine how the listener will feel when they hear the lyrics.


How would you classify yourself? Genre wise. Or do you not have a genre?
Music is recived diferntly now a days, its hard at tome to catogories because all the genres are combining there musical greatness to create  Sometimes it’s Hip-Hop, EDM, Pop, Reggae, R&B, Jazz I love all Music.

What are some goals of yours? To write songs that heal people, inspire people, help people.


Upcoming projects? I am currently working on my 7 song EP titled “Arrived”, to be released in late November along with a new book “Identifying Your F.A.I.T.H.”


What is one thing you hate about the music industry? No no no, I don’t hate. If you hate you hate yourself first. The industry is the industry. There’s nothing to not like, it’s just something to master.


Talk a little bit about the concept of "girl power" or being a #girlboss ?


can we use lady boos here I can expound on the acronym love and develp yourself, or is girlpower part of your brand?
Maybe we should hash tag (lady boss). I have an acronym for LADY - Love And Develop Yourself. That’s what it’s all about, the discovery and development of who you are.


Tell me some of your favorite artists? I am a fan of all artist,  Ms Hill, Ms Badu, Alicia Keys,  Detra Nada , Ms Malato, Dynasty the DY, Mary J Blige, Little Mo, Michelle, Carbi B, Sza, Sade, Lady Luck, Jazz (Tami Romans daughter) Jada Kiss,  50 Cent, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, J Cole, Common, Sarah  McClachglan, Will I Am, Neo, Pit Bull the list goes on and on.


What inspires you? My family


Enjoyed the interview? I know you did! ;-) Here’s where you can find Miss Simone G. Go check her out :)

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
