Francesca Simone becomes latest Orange Amps Ambassador

Orange Amplification has introduced guitarist and singer-songwriter Francesca Simone as its latest Ambassador.

She has played onstage with Kehlani, accompanied Beyoncé on the Formation World Tour, and recently performed alongside her at Coachella.

In Simone’s school yearbook, she was voted ‘most likely to be famous’ by her classmates. “This prophecy has certainly come true as she sets the world on fire with passionate guitar playing and knack for fusing pop, rock, and jazz to produce fat, perfect notes full of Californian sunshine,” said Orange.

“Her distinctive guitar playing is a blend of her bubbly personality and rock star shredding ability threaded through with a vibrant street style. This has put her at the forefront of popular music, and she continues to collaborate with a variety of artists and producers on projects in addition to her own.”

The Rockerverb MKIII Combo 50 Simone will be using on stage is perfectly suited to her sound. Talking about her Orange Amp, Simone said: “The first time I played through the Rockerverb I was blown away by the depth of the sound. The tone is so dynamic; it cuts through but maintains its warmth…one of a kind. Orange helps me get my signature tone that I’ve been looking for all these years. And I’m all about bright colors so the orange color is the cherry on the top!”

Last month Simone’s debut music video featuring her own composition ‘Still’ premiered on Billboard and you can see her latest Orange amps video below:
