He is the father of a 16-year-old son and a known abuser of acoustic guitars.

When Bob Sima (pronounced sEYE-ma) opens his mouth to sing what comes out is far beyond the human sounds of a warm and soulful voice. Beyond the songs, beyond the voice, beyond the stories. Yes...there’s more. A lesson, a nudge, a reminder, of the simple splendor of this place and these experiences we all share. The unique beauty is his presentation of these ancient messages - the conversations he has with the master teachers of the universe - in music that lives and breathes across generations. Bob has been called “Eckhart Tolle with a guitar” and his music truly heals and expands the heart. What draws you in is his ability to share these insights in a way that grabs your listening ear, inspires your beating heart, awakens your inner spirit, and transforms your most intimate desires. He is a poet, observer, scribe, and healer - all divinely bundled as a singing, songwriting transformative energy. His gift of music is a magnifying glass to the soul, each song sincere and worth repeating for a lifetime. The seemingly casual fashion that Bob makes his guitar speak is not coincidentally right in rhythm with all of the toes tapping, tears dripping, and hands clapping in the room. Bob truly moves his audiences - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Bob is a different kind of musician and songwriter, with distinctive dreams and aspirations for his audience. Bob is more influenced by the likes of Rumi and Gandhi than he is by Dylan and Springsteen. Part of Bob's music mission states the following: "Each and every song I channel begins as my personal conversation with Source delivered as life lessons of spiritual growth and transformation. Just as these conversations birth expansion, awakening, and remembrance in me, I share my gift to soften the hardest of hearts, widen the narrowest of smiles, loosen the tightest of grips, lighten the heaviest of loads, and thin the thickest of walls of as many souls as I can possibly reach." Bob is a nationally touring and award-winning singer-songwriter based in Annapolis, Maryland.
