I also love these wise words of Amanda Palmer:

Thank you so much for your faith and love. Let’s do this!
Simone Waddell is, first and foremost, a fine friend. I've done several distinctly different projects with Simone - a tour, some recording sessions, some production shows. She brings a degree of professionalism and commitment to the table every time. These serve as a great example to up and coming artists, and also put seasoned professionals on notice (LOL). Apart from singing so well and writing great songs, she also possesses a survival 'essential' that you can't learn at any music school: a sense of humour. Sam McNally - keyboard player, recording artist, composer, producer
Oh my, talk about someone I can relate to! One of the hardest working people I know. Always seeking ways to push and inspire people and continually refining her own craft as an incredible singer. Loyal and committed to what she believes in. A fighter who has had to endure more battles than anyone I know, and yet, Simone continues to somehow rise up. She is an amazing person, an amazing friend and someone I admire greatly. I wish you were all so lucky to have someone like her in your corner. Thank you Simone, from so many people who you mean so much to. Michael Carpenter - Record Producer, Sound Engineer, Songwriter, Musician, Singer, Lecturer in Recording Arts
Simone is a beautiful whirling dervish of energetic creative talent. She has come back into my life to record an album at my Tone Ranger Studio after many years in the gig world since her studies at Southern Cross University, Lismore. The studio environment bares the souls of all participants and Simone would stand as one of the most focused artists that I've worked with. Jim Kelly - Guitarist/Producer, Tone Ranger Studio
Simone you have mentored me for years and I have learnt great techniques from you. Every audition preparation that I have worked on with you has been a success. I enjoy every session I have with you especially our songwriting sessions. The Lion King audition preparation is something I will always remember. Thank you for being part of my dream. You are a great singing teacher and a friend to cherish for life.

Simone is multi-talented. A great singer, songwriter, actress, teacher and mentor. She has even worked backstage in technical production. All these abilities have assisted me in producing successful major events and onstage productions. Simone has an 'old fashioned' work ethic and gives total loyalty and respect to her colleagues.
Pauline McFetridge - Executive Producer
Simone has a charming personality and is a delight to work with. Her recordings are a testimony to her extraordinary compositions and soulful voice. Simone is be an exceptional performer in a variety of styles. Her abundant talent is matched by her maturity and poise. In my many years of working in the music industry, Simone is one of the most outstanding vocalists I have ever encountered. I give my highest praise to her. Donna McElroy - Berklee professor, Grammy nominee, Dove Award winner, vocalist on multiple gold and platinum records.
Dr Warwick Carter
Simone has such a beautiful instrument yet her commitment is one of her best assets! You can be an extremely talented musician and still not make it into Berklee but Simone has a that rare combination of musical ability and commitment. I was so impressed upon hearing her sing, I offered her the chance of a musical lifetime to complete her degree at Berklee on a scholarship. Dr Warwick Carter - former Dean of Berklee College of Music.
Deborah Torres Patel
When I first heard Simone's "Born To Win" I was moved to tears and blown away by the message and the inspiration it brings! I taught the song to a large women's conference in Singapore and often play it at my Find Your Million Dollar Voice program around the world. With a recent international project, I had no hesitation in selecting Simone to oversee the entire Australian team. She booked the recording studio and sang marvellously. She also sourced other world class singers to record backing vocals, organised professional shoots, booked the cast, the transport, the catering - and returned all the footage back to us in Hollywood in record time!
