|Birth name||Simone Barreto Saback|
|Born||25 February 1956|
Simone was born in Bahia and raised in Brasília. She began composing as a teenager, revealing innate musical talent of eclectic style. In the late 1970s, she accepted the invitation from Alvim Barbosa, then director of Sala Funarte in Brasília, to perform her first show, thus beginning her career as a singer. For four years she performed several shows praised in the Brazilian capital and throughout the country, performing three seasons at Sala Funarte. However, soon after she decides to move away from the stage and dedicate herself to journalism and showbiz, maintaining her artistic activity as a composer and writer.
In 2002, the increasingly intense musical partnerships make her move to Rio de Janeiro. In that decade, she bursts as composer in the voices of Zélia Duncan and Frejat, with the song Mãos Atadas. The recording was homage from Zélia to Cássia Eller, with whom she used to sing the blues on the musical scene of Brasília, in the early 80's. From then on, her compositions have been recorded by many singers, among other artists, by Fábio Jr., Leonardo, Dillo Daraujo, Ronaldo Barcelos, by the duo Zélia Duncan and Simone and by Ana Carolina, who released the hit Vai.
In 2012, the unpublished song Flor do Sol – composed thirty years before in partnership with Cássia Eller and recorded on a simple cassette tape – was released as a single by Porangareté label. The track, reworked by Chico Chico (Eller's son), with his participation and Cássia's former musicians, was officially released on TV Globo's "Fantástico", to celebrate the day Cássia Eller would have turned 50.
In 2016, Simone Saback releases another single: Mãos Atadas, in the voices and guitars of herself and Cássia Eller's. This track is also based on the recording of their rehearsal on a simple cassette tape, and carried out at Simone's house in 1982. The record was digitized and arranged by the Brazilian musician Dillo Daraujo.
