Dion “Spread” Simon is a very energetic, friendly, sociable and funny individual who loves to entertain.
From a very tender age Simon started singing in the church choir in his former hometown, Charlottesville Tobago. Growing up in a very musical family, Simon would go with his grandparents (who were both choir leaders) to choir practice. He also took part in his high school calypso competitions. He later formed the group ‘Sentinels’, in which he was the lead singer and musical director. There is where he developed performance skills. Simon’s persona off stage and on stage is a brilliant contrast. Simon is well known for his ability to woo the crowd and get audiences moving.
Simon moved to Canada in 1995 and in 2000, Colour Quest was formed in which he was one of the founding members. He hopes to bring joy and happiness to people’s lives through this beautiful thing: music.
