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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
