MOST RECENT

This sticker has been on my bass since '89. Pariah was an amazing band and we lost Sims Ellison way too soon. The foundation setup in his name is still going strong since '95 helping musicians in the Austin area with mental health and addiction issues. Check them out at Simsfoundation.org

What does reflection mean to you? In my new post, I reflect on my 36 years of life, and what that means to me. I also share my birthday fun with you! Curious to see how I celebrated?

Very chill night hanging at my pal Sandra Bullock's house listening to the blues all to support the SIMS foundation. 🎤🎸 (Okay, so Sandra doesn't live there anymore, but she DID and that counts for something.)

For our next #mentalhealthawarenessmonth post, we're featuring bass player and singer Sims Ellison of the Austin-based metal band Pariah (second from the left). Ellison and his brother Kyle formed Pariah when they were in high school, and they signed with Geffen Records in 1991. From 1991 to 1995, Pariah released two albums, including the one depicted here, entitled "Make Believe" (1992). After Geffen Records dropped Pariah, Ellison, who already suffered from severe anxiety and depression, took his life after a major depressive episode on June 6, 1995. In response to Ellison's suicide, his father and several others founded the SIMS Foundation, an Austin organization that provides local musicians and their families access and financial support to mental health and addiction services.
