About Margeaux Simms
The Jamaican-Canadian, Margeaux Simms began writing songs and performing at age 14. In 2005, her group Test Drive had a striking set of production by Timberland, Danja Handz and The Runners along with DJ Khalid.

Margeaux ultimately self-released her solo EP Animal House in 2011. Joining other various electronic groups, and bands playing guitar, she eventually changed her moniker from Margo to Margeaux. She returned with a new sound and songs featuring production from various producers. The result of the production has been an ethereal crafting of electronic Hip Hop that evokes emotional swag with heavy drum beats and sultry vocals that embody who Margeaux is as an artist.

Her hit single “Start a War,” which was released last year on her HOFM label and debuted on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, has created great anticipation among music geeks from Toronto to Brooklyn to Japan and is the prelude for her forthcoming EP YDR (yellow dirty rose), which will be released later this year.
