Simon Wilcox (b in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian musician and artist.
Wilcox is the daughter of Canadian rock musician David Wilcox and British artist S Sadia. At the age of three, she was placed with a female friend of the family in Ottawa, Ontario while her parents went on tour. She grew up in Ottawa, seeing her parents on a sporadic basis until she turned 17, when she moved to Toronto.
In 1996 while attending the Ontario College of Art and Design, Wilcox played a prominent role in the gothic rock group Exovedate’s second CD. The album was very well received by college, university, and underground radio, notably charting in the top 10 on the University of Toronto's FM station CIUT-FM for three months in 1997. While Wilcox is cited as a remaining and important influence on this band, it was her unfettered solo albums Mongrel of Love (2000) and Smart Function (2003), which firmly established her as an important Canadian musician.
Simon currently divides her time between the UK and Toronto.
