Starting out, the idea of living the artist life was the last thing on Sims's minds. Black American music(i.e jazz, Hip hop, Blues) played a huge role in Romel's adolescent years leading to a career in music. After doing local gigs with multiple bands throughout Cincinnati, Oh, Romel realized the only way for him to evolve as a performer was to hit the road. Over the Past handful of years, Sims has logged thousands of gigs — with the occasional festival appearances — in cities across the country (Chicago, New York & Houston).
" The music is beyond me, it heals, connects, & is the manifestation of creativity. Whether I'm composing an orchestration or improvising in the moment I take joy in it, ALL OF IT. I honor my culture for its embrace on my music & I thank other cultures for allowing me to learn their music and properly respect these rich traditions & innovations. It's communal from the music to the people by the people." - Romel Sims
