"Adrienne Nims: A Musical Chameleon"

At an early age Adrienne Nims began absorbing and imbedding the sounds she heard around her like a giant sponge. Her gift for music was recognized, cultivated, and expanded upon from the first piano lesson she received while still in kindergarten through her mastery of the 30-odd woodwind instruments that capture most of her attention today. Born in Colorado, but raised in the Northeast, Sims experienced and performed a wide variety of music as a developing musician, taking a little bit from each musical foray and adding it to her ever-expanding bag of tricks. - San Diego Troubadour


"Adrienne Nims Live"

A jazz heavyweight, Adrienne is equally at home with Latin and African syncopations infused with irresistible grooves, driving hip-hop, and elegant, ethereal melodies that melt into your body.

Listening to Adrienne tease more range, melody out of an instrument than you would ever believe possible is vastly more than a treat, but it hardly compares with the experience of watching while you listen. A master of showmanship, she dazzles the eye with color, movement, and an array of flutes, saxophones, and other global instruments as gorgeous to look at as they are magnetic to the ear. An evening with Adrienne goes beyond sensual, beyond entertainment. Seeing her perform live fills you with the miracle of life, lifts you up out of your chair, makes you want to hold on forever to that bliss.
