Biography

With a soulful, unique style Nicki Sims performs with warmth and passion. No stranger to the music scene, Nicki's dynamic stage presence and heartfelt live performances have been appreciated worldwide. Weather touring with Europe's foremost pop/rock group (Didier Gatsby et les Lunitics) or Grammy and Academy Award winning group (The New Christy Minstrels) or America's premier folk-singer Glen Yarbrough, or winning the Songprize International Songwriting Competition, Nicki's musicianship, energy, drive, and positive attitude have always been the perfect combination for success in all his endeavors.

Songwriting and arranging are second nature to Nicki, and through his workshops with Buddy Kaye and Harriet Schock, he has developed an excellent ear for melody and song structure. His association with songwriting legend Jerry Leiber has also sharpened his skills in the areas of workmanship, originality, and the universal appeal which is present in all of Nicki's songs.

Lyrics

I Whisper a Prayer

Written By: Nicki Sims

(VERSE)
I Whisper A Prayer to your warm body
I Whisper A Prayer to your soul
No other lover can make me holy
Nobody haunt's me like you do

(CHORUS)
Baby can you hear me
Cause I've been crying all night long
And baby can't you hear me
You know i'm feeling so alone

(VERSE)
Please take this white rage from my body
And turn it into something fine
And take this pounding from my head
So I can feel good all the time

(CHORUS)
Baby can't you hear me
You know I,m crying all night long
And baby can you hear me
Cause I've been feeling so alone

(BRIDGE)
What if I told you I could walk on water
Would that be enough to change your mind
What if I told you your the wild eyed daughter
And your kind of love has made me blind

(VERSE)
I Whisper A Prayer to your warm body
I Whisper A Prayer to your soul
No other lover can make me holy
Nobody haunt's me like you do

We Are Americans

Written By: Nicki Sims

(VERSE)
When I was just a boy I once had a dream
About a man who was strong and proud and free
He was always part of the winning team
Down at the soldier field Chicago ball game
He would do anything to feed his family
When I look into his eyes I see a little part of me

(CHORUS)
We are Americans living on our hopes and dreams
We are Americans always fighting to be free
We are Americans looking toward tomorrow
We are Americans and our dreams are all we've got

(VERSE)
The years have gone on by now I am a man
Time to be moving on good-bye Mom and Dad
As I closed the door I heard Mama say
God bless my son and God bless the U.S.A.
He would do anything for lady liberty
When I look into his eyes I see a little part of me

(CHORUS)
We are Americans living on our hopes and dreams
We are Americans always fighting to be free
We are Americans looking toward tomorrow
We are Americans and our dreams are all we've got

Set List

I like my original sets to last about an hour.
Known in L.A. as the "Human Jukebox," I have a vast array of "cover songs" learned from thousands of hours of doing "cover gigs". Cover song and style are taylored to each venue and audience
