Who is Will Sims?
Baltimore-based alternative rock and pop artist, Will Sims, creates themes that focus strongly on both romantic and social relationships, and the difficulties faced in our modern society. His rich, powerful music reaches out to connect on a personal level while still maintaining infectious components that make his songs stick in your head.
Sims’ music echoes the work of the 90's alternative rock movement by incorporating various genres of music as a palette to paint different styles of imagery into his music. The vocal styles of Rob Thomas are woven into his work, which are vocal melodies that both compliment, and are complimented by, the music. The diversity of his voice allows him to traverse from high energy, Foo Fighters-esque rock songs, to soft, Goo Goo Dolls style ballads that reach for deeply buried emotions. His songs also have a grand scale to them, built to fill arenas in a similar scale to that of a U2 or Oasis anthem.
Will Sims plans to release his debut solo EP, May Never Be Forgotten, after releasing the single “Amber Eyes.” A combination of pop, rock, and dance, "Amber Eyes," draws inspiration from Kick era INXS, and David Bowie's Let's Dance record. The song hints at the dangers of the game of love and the excitement that comes with meeting someone with whom you feel a strong connection. Another track off the debut EP, "Will You Remember?" makes you wonder if your failed relationships ever really meant something.
Through his music, Sims tries to answer questions about how relationships work and the roads people take to get to where they are. He aims to reach out to those who are struggling to let them know that they can make it through the hard times because others have been through the same ordeals. With music that is catchy, fun, and occasionally emotional, Will Sims aspires to make a connection with his audience in a way that will be as timeless as his music.
