Simone Locker AKA Felon is emerging as a leading light. Battling comes naturally to this feisty 23 year old singer and lyricist. Taking her name from her incarceration in Prison following an attempted armed robbery, the Felon story is a modern day rags to riches tale with an urban twist. In 2002, she burst onto the UK dance scene with her anthemic debut single ‘Get Out’. Hailed as ‘a landmark release for the new generation of urban music’ by Voice magazine, this seminal track hit the top five of three charts simultaneously and earned the plaudits of music critics up and down the UK. With remixes by Phats and Small and Luck’n’Neat, ‘Get Out’ hit number 31 in the mainstream charts whilst NME declared it was ‘the finest R’n’B record of the noughties’.

But behind the scenes, Felon had reason to believe that her intellectual property was being compromised by individuals attached to the record label. Although Universal tried to help, the working relationship with Serious became untenable. With her promotion budget slashed, TV appearances shelved and no second single forthcoming, the future for Simone Locker once again seemed bleak.

Working with JD (so Solid) has just produced the track ‘U Ain't Worth It’, whilst her collaboration with The Renegades resulted in ‘Hey’, already being plaudited by the industry. Next? New York to work alongside Ric Wake's hottest new producers.
