Sim was born and raised on a small farm just south of Abiquiu, New Mexico; about an hour and a half south of Colorado. Sim was raised alongside his older brother surrounded by acres and acres of open land and extended family where he and his wife now raise their two boys; just 100 yards from the house he grew up in.
With a distinctive voice, which quite simply, doesn’t sound like anyone else in country music today, Sim’s heart-felt vocals and his lyrics paint a picture of pain, love, and the struggle between. Balkey radiates an edgy intensity that brings out the best in every song whether it’s a vulnerable ballad or uptempo party anthem. Sim infuses lyrics with a warmth and authority that draws the listener into every song and makes it memorable.
Sim’s country roots shine through in his 2015 release of the album Messin’ Around that is strong and undeniably country. His single “How ‘Bout We Do That Tonight” hit the Texas Regional Radio scene in 2015 and quickly plowed into the Top 100 on the Texas Chart. Sim Balkey has an energetic live show playing over 100 nights a year with an ever-expanding schedule. Keep an eye out, Sim should be coming your way soon.
