Simms was born in San Francisco, California, United States. When she was about 11 years old she moved from California to Tampa, Florida, United States—where her father was relocated for work. In Florida she learned to play the guitar from her brother, Tommy Simms. She began writing songs at the age of 14.
The Voice (2012)
Simms was a contestant on the 2012 season of reality television show The Voice. She sang the Beatles' "Oh! Darling" for her blind audition and chose to be a member of Team Cee Lo. Simms advanced to the live rounds after defeating Sarah Golden in a duet. In her first live show, she performed "Roxanne" by The Police, which the judges/coaches enjoyed.
During the quarter-finals, Simms covered "Cryin'" by Aerosmith. She was the only female contestant to advance onto the finals, edging out Jamar Rogers, after covering "It's A Man's Man's Man's World". Simms' cover of "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" reached #70 and also attained positions in three other charts on Billboard.
For the finale, Simms sang Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" and placed second behind Jermaine Paul.
Shortly after finishing The Voice, Simms was signed by Cee Lo Green, her coach on the show.
