“ Simone Teleases' For the Love is a genuinely sensual album that expertly captures a tale of love and loss. The album's production value is impressive and offers a different song that captures any feeling that you could feel about love.”

Born and raised in Oakland, California, Simone Telease found her love for music at a very young age. Her parents introduced her to a vast array of songs and albums, so it was not hard for Simone to fall in love with artists like Amel Larrieux, Brandy, and Amerie. Shortly after, she joined her elementary school choir which eventually led her to begin singing and writing her own songs. She would often spend hours in her room writing songs and singing aloud until her parents told her to quiet down.
At the age of 23, Simone left everything she once knew and moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue her dreams of becoming a household name in the music industry. She first gained exposure to a broader audience in 2019 when social media influencer, Norman Freeman, posted a snippet of her single “Dishonest” on instagram. The song became an instant success overnight, garnering over thousands and thousands of streams.
