     The band Epica, from the Netherlands,  was formed by guitarist Mark Jansen in 2002, after leaving the band After Forever.  Lead singer Simone Simons was born in Hoensbroek, Netherlands,  at the age of 12 she played flute in music school, at 14 she took pop singing lessons, but at 15 she switched to classical singing after listening to Nightwish’s Oceanborn, which is her favorite Nightwish album.  She joined Epica at age 17.

     When she was asked about her looks as one of the factors that attract attention to the band . . .

     Simone Simons said: “First of all the most important is the sound of the band, because beauty will fade one day, and I hope my voice won’t [Laughs]… But, yeah, you have two aspects of the band – the music and then the live side of it, and part of the show is also that it has to look nice, so I take good care of myself, I make sure that the fans have something to look at during the show.”
