"Country Music Club of Switzerland"

Award winning Training Rider, Songwriter, Band leader, and a member of the Texas Music Association, since 1974 with countless events appeared - Rene (pronounced: Reen) Sims. We can hardly believe that Rene is more than 30 years in the business and plays, nevertheless, only since her 16-th year, the guitar. The lady looks substantially younger still her present career successful. "Music comes from the heart and the soul", it brings Rene easiest of all. Recently her album "It's About Time", songs from deep down, all as to the life taken, without klischees not to put under Country, Blues or other catagories, but simply and movingly Texas Music. Her love to the Lonestar State becomes clear over and over again, "Frosty Mornin' in Texas" is such a proof; just as "Trick-A-Lin of Rain". But Rene not always was in Texas. She followed a Love to Louisiana, stayed there, received Success with riding academy in DeRidder. The song "Louisiana" tells the story. Nevertheless, she has moved back again in her beloved state where she is often invited by numerous songwriters, events, and festivals.

"Bruno Michel CD Review"

Prämierte Dressur Reiterin, Songwriterin, Bandleaderin, Gründungsmitglied der Texas Music Association, seit 1974 an zahllosen Events aufgetreten – wer Rene (sprich: Reen) Sims sieht, kann’s kaum glauben, dass sie über dreissig Jahre im Geschäft ist und doch erst seit ihrem 16. Lebensjahr Gitarre spielt. Die Dame sieht wesentlich jünger aus, als ihre bisherigen Karriereschritte vermuten lassen.

„Musik kommt aus dem Herzen und der Seele“, bringt es Rene auf die einfachste aller Formeln. Entsprechend kommt ihr Album It’s About Time daher. Songs mit Tiefgang, allesamt aus dem Leben gegriffen, ohne Klischees, nicht einzureihen unter Country, Blues oder sonst eine Kategorie, sondern schlicht und ergreifend Texas Music.

Ihre Liebe zum Lonestar State wird immer wieder deutlich. Frosty Mornin’ In Texas ist so ein Beweis, genau so wie Trick-A-Lin Rain. Aber Rene war nicht immer in Texas. Sie folgte einer Liebe nach Louisiana, blieb dort hängen, betrieb eine Pferdepension samt Reitschule in DeRidder. Der Song Louisiana erzählt die Geschichte. Trotzdem hat es sie wieder in ihren Heimatstaat zurück gezogen, wo sie oft an den zahlreichen Songwriter Events und Festivals zu Gast ist.
