    SPENCER SIMS- Artist Bio Spencer Sims is a born and raised Chicago-native who’s brought a soulful and experimental sound to the rap scene since he started rapping in 2012. A triple threat performer, songwriter, and producer, Sims has a prolific output and has recorded over 100 tracks in 2021 alone. His first year of streaming yielded him over 120k streams on Spotify, and another of his self-produced albums is set to release within the next year(2022). When asked what he’d like to bring to the music scene, Spencer Sims says, “I want to push the boundaries and blur the lines within the genres we know and love. I want to open the listeners mind to a side of the music scene that is not tapped into often. Vulnerability, openness and transparency over some of the most interesting and forward thinking production I can come up with is what I hope to deliver on every album and single.” “Growing up in Chicago in an environment that can be so hostile at times I try to give the listener a unique experience full of both ugly truths and reassurance that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I PROMISE i am the producer/artist for you, I will treat every job I get with the same care that I would give my own music. LET'S MAKE SOME IMPACTFUL MUSIC.

    I am a dedicated, cooperative talent looking to explore and grow projects of various categories and sizes, from big to small. I have an adamant belief that there is no art I can not tame. My best work is in poetry, where Scholastic awarded me a Silver Key in 2022, and Young Chicago Authors recruited me for a writing program culminating in a live performance the following summer. My digital illustrations and photo work have landed me in local community college art shows, and I also performed in September 2022 for a poetry festival in Chicago's legendary Printer's Row. I'd love to help pilot or man the crew of any work you have to offer. Feel free to call on me!
