Simon Wilcox - Smart Function
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Simon Wilcox - Smart FunctionAnother child of a rock star. In Wilcox’s case, her father is Canrock guitar god David Wilcox, who played with country-rock pioneers Great Speckled Bird and whose “Rockin' the Boogie” became an anthem for Canada’s Olympic gold-winning figure skaters. Unlike most celebrity offspring, Simon isn’t a bored brat who takes talent for granted. Raised by family friends, she worked hard at her craft and reveals a dark, intriguing character here on songs like “Kissed” and the hypnotic “Mommies & Daddies.”
