Will Sims with the Amber Eyes


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.
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.
Sims’ music has been featured on radio stations in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina as well as online radio stations and podcasts.  He has played shows in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and the Carolinas, and opened for several national acts including: Saving Abel, Adema, 12 Stones, Smile Empty Soul, Charm City Devils, Otep, Taproot, Hurt, Kip Winger, Faster Pussycat, Almost Kings, and The Dreaming. Will Sims is sure to impact you in more ways than one with his music.

Will Sims plans to release his debut album, 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.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
