Bernie Sims

Ever since his earliest performances in grade school in Salt Lake City, Bernie Sims has been a singer and performer. By high school, this musical curiosity was building into what has become a lifelong passion for songwriting.

His early music career involved playing both originals and cover tunes in coffee houses and with bands throughout high school and beyond. In addition to touring the Rocky Mountain states from his home in Salt Lake City, a few of his bands opened for national acts such as Steve Miller Band and It''s A Beautiful Day.

Bernie moved to Seattle in 1974 to form the band PUSH, a versatile, five piece rock band, and played throughout the Northwest for a few years. He chose to make Seattle his home for the next several years, with a brief stop in Los Angeles, performing occasionally and continuing to write. In 1999 he moved to Portland Oregon with his wife, Carol, an artist who paints acrylics.

Bernie counts among his many influences, Kenny Loggins, Paul McCartney, Boz Scaggs, Billy Joel, Donald Fagen and Stephen Stills. The blend of these influences can be heard in Bernie''s songs, which talk about love and love gone awry, nature and man''s place in it, and the search for meaning in a world spinning too fast for most people to care about such things. Over the years as his songwriting skills developed, Bernie''s use of other tools also evolved beyond guitar, vocals and piano to include MIDI and multi-track and hard disk recording.

His debut CD "Alter Ego" was released in April of 2002 and has received rave reviews. "Steely Dan meets Everything But the Girl" said Kevin Welch, KINK/FM. Produced by Sims, the CD presents nine, fresh new songs, and features an outstanding collection of Portland players and vocalists, including Dan Balmer, Barry Aiken, Jay Koder Mel Kubik and Gary Ogan.

Take "Alter Ego" for a spin of your own.
