About Chaney Sims
Chaney Sims is from Queens, NYC and was raised listening to old school R&B, Soul, Blues, Jazz and Worksongs. Steeped in these musical traditions, Chaney is dedicated to sharing their significance; revamping classics to reflect her experiences as a queer woman of color; and telling her story.
Chaney has been nominated for a GRAMMY award, as well as two Blues Music Awards, with the Heritage Blues Orchestra (H.B.O.) for their debut album, And Still I
Rise, an international collaboration that honors African-American roots music. She has also received an Award of Distinction from the Fresh Fruit Festival for her performance
in tribute to LGBTQ Jazz greats at Joe’s Pub. Chaney is honored to perform at venues around the world and to share the stage with amazing artists who incite and inspire, including Staceyann Chin, Phylicia Rashad, Keb’ Mo’, Selah Sue, Ruthie Foster, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, recording legend Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Guy Davis and the late Odetta.
