Since I haven’t posted in a while figured I’d say Hi and let y’all know October has been a really great month and though my life isn’t by any means perfect I’m very happy right now. So here’s a few little highlights and if you’ve got something you’re grateful for or if anything at all went right today I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment or message me xx 💚 #October11thisagreatday #queencitycollectivecoffee #LA #Friendship #DenverCO #Newjob #learningandgrowingeveryday #lovemyfriends #lovemyfamily #enjoyingthesnow #Onestepatatime #Justhappytobealive #Feelinggoodashell

I thought for my last video at 23 I should pick a song that could best sum up how I’ve been feeling on my journey, and I definitely felt like this was fitting. This song reminds me of places I’ve been and chapters I’ve closed but something that’s been consistently coming up is, I know my destination, I know who I want to be, what I want to be, and what I hope to accomplish the vision is still alive in my head. But I’m just not there yet, and as much as I’d love to speed up the process, to find a 12 step program for everything I want to achieve, I just gotta let things happen the way they’re meant to and do what I can. I never thought I’d be where I am, I never imagined this part, or the one before it, but I’m here, I’m in it, and I’m grateful for it. Love y’all so much, thank you for the love and support, imma be MIA for the weekend and I’ll see y’all when I get back. 💚💚💚 #24 #birthdaymonth #reconnectwithyou #love #DanielCaesar #Streetcar #LeoSeason #Grow #CJSimsSings

I really have to thank my parents for having such diverse taste in music and influencing who I am today. One of the moments I remember to this day is my dad and I slow dancing to this song in my living room. I love the words of this song and the pure message it holds, but most importantly I love the amazing memories I have when I hear it and all those times we danced in our home singing about how we loved each other. Those are the things I hold onto most, life keeps going, I’m in a new state and I’m a year older but no matter what when we hear that song it brings us together. #Allthislove #eldebarge #Birthdaymonth #LeoSeason #24onfriday #grow #bruceleeroy #LennyWilliams #Oldsoul #intimeyouwillseethatlovewontletyoudown

Since I missed the other day i figured I’d give you guys more than one video, except this time I thought I’d give you another one of my songs I’ve been working on. The catch is I’ve actually been working on this song since 2016. Long story short I met this producer in Sydney who really helped me on my own writing journey when it seemed no one else would and changed my entire perspective when it came to music. He reminded me of what I loved about music and to be quite honest if there was anything I’ve ever been addicted to it’s definitely being in a studio. I’m still learning to this day, I only came up with two songs I was completely proud of and essentially begged him to not give them to anyone else because I wanted them for myself. But I’ll be honest at this point in my life I finally am up to writing for someone else and only keeping the songs I feel sound like Me. Hope y’all like this one and maybe one day I’ll be able to play you the full thing.

If I’m guna work on being myself and pushing my growth, then I have to say that I listened to a ton of my voice memos before deciding to record this...and maybe I’m just having a bad day but I thought they all sounded like shit. So I finally just opened the blinds let the light in, listened to a song or two and I opened my notebook to this song...I have the entire thing written out (which if you know me is usually rare) yet I haven’t sang it once. This is just the chorus but today it finally made sense. I don’t have a copy of every song I have written, and some I hope never see the light of day, but if I’m guna do what I said I would then it’s looking like I’m guna put up shit that makes me more uncomfortable than singing someone else’s song wrong.

cj_sims_. Definitely have a soft spot for La La Land although I still wish they

Definitely have a soft spot for La La Land although I still wish they ended up together at the end, I can finally admit I appreciated the realness. We can be stupid sometimes and realise at the last moment that we missed our chance with the person we loved the most. I believe that if you did everything you could and it didn’t work out then it’s okay that you didn’t end up together. I also believe that you can fall for more than one person but it’s ultimately up to you in the end to choose the one you want to be with. Every ending comes with a beautiful and extraordinary beginning. Every beginning has its end. Why not make the most of it and not live with “what if’s”. #CJSimsSings #cityofstarscover #LaLaLand #Cover #LeoSeason #BirthMonth #Creativity #AllwerelookingforisLove #16till24 #lifegoesone

I’m usually one to pick any song I can belt to because that’s kind of my vocal sweet spot. I figured a good challenge for me would be to try and control myself. I think what I appreciate about songs like these is that you can’t help but feel something when you hear them. Call it sad or melancholy if you will but they’re honest and sometimes people avoid these dark places because it’s hard to let yourself feel everything but that allows for healing. If you know the words or have a moment to look them up I’m sure you have a story of your own to go with the lyrics. I’ve got a few stories of my own and sadly not many happy endings but I’m better because of it. I’m not afraid to say the words anymore but I’m more so afraid of never feeling it at all and never being loved in return. Xoxo #CJSimsSings #ILoveYou #BillieEilish #cover #grow #creativity @billieeilish I love you, and I’m inspired by you every time.

I’ve always loved miss Lauryn Hill and everything she does. Been working on this one for a while and I wanted to share it with you all for my little creativity birthday session. Been singing this song since I was a kid and suddenly people I’ve never known can hear me. Such a crazy thought but I’m sticking with it and challenging my soon to be 24 year old self. I’m attempting to set some new goals and to push myself as this new year begins. I don’t want to be the same person I was and I’m ready to grow. Love y’all thank you for the comments and thank you for supporting me! #BirthdayMonth #LeoSeason #CJSimsSings #KillingMeSoftly #Cover #Creativity #16days #letsdothis #LaurynHill

Hello all it’s been a while🙋🏽‍♀️ I’m slowly but surely finding my footing these days. I was inspired by another vocalist I followed to do a bit of a creative revamp and post a video of me singing for the next 16 days since my birthday is on the 16th. I’m going to do my best and sing it live each time. I might need a bit of help so if you want to send a request or two and a bit of encouragement it would be much appreciated. Do what you love everyday no matter what. 😘 Love you all! Xoxo #CJSimsSings #SomewhereOvertheRainbow #BirthdayMonth #Leoseason #Cover

So if I had to condense what my last few weeks in New York were like I’d say this about covers it. But those first two videos I was singing to myself without realising it, and although I didn’t want to post that first one I felt it necessary because I don’t honestly let people see me cry and I’m usually vulnerable with a smile. But they were good tears and they had all the shit I’ve been holding onto in them so even though i tried to stop them I took the hard route and let them fall. — The NYC Finale: Happy/sad tears, small moments spent around people I loved, a few stolen moments of me doing the thing I love in the midst of my craziness, and taking myself on a little adventure just because. — I’ll miss those few who I got the chance to know and do life with, I’ll miss my little Aussie cafes, and I’ll miss my Vans family for sure. But I’m at peace with my decision, I’m happy to be back where I belong, and I’m ready for this part of my journey to flourish and be everything it was supposed to. Thank you for the lessons, I’m good, and I’m happy to let all that go. To whoever needs this, don’t wait for one day when & don’t wait for a new year to do something for yourself. It’s okay to move on, it’s okay to go back, it’s okay to appreciate where you’ve been or to know that something or some place is just not for you, but don’t get stuck or believe that you’re not able to start over or to do something you love. Whatever you’ve been putting off all these years it’s time to start doing it and I mean RIGHT now. There are burdens you’re carrying that don’t belong to you, and you need to give them back to whoever or whatever you picked them up from and walk forward without the extra baggage. You got this, it’s okay, and everything is going to work out just fine. #iloveDenver #Coloradogalatheart #thankunext #itstime #movingontobetterthings #ghostin #home #findyourcornerofthesky #letitallgo #dream #dontholdback #yougotthis #newbeginnings #lessgo #cjsimssings

To my dearest @coin thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to travel more than I normally would. I’ve always wanted to see the world and tour every inch that I can. I first fell in love with you guys in Nashville TN, and I followed to Athens Georgia, then to the beautiful LA and each time I’m constantly blown away. You guys were nothing short of amazing and I will forever cherish the memories we’ve made. Also after hearing so much about Malibu i decided we needed to make the trip and i have no idea how anyone could forget about her cause she’s stunning. So thank you thank you thank you. Sweet @lilywonkuh my darling sister I couldn’t be more grateful knowing I had someone to share these moments with and I wouldn’t know who else would help me experience LA and all it’s glory. Thank you for sticking by me all these years and for singing Malibu at the top of your lungs with me. It wouldn’t be the same without you. My heart is so full and so excited for all the wonderful things that will come in our futures. I’m proud of you and I’m ready to see the rest of the world with you because it wouldn’t be the same if you weren’t there to push me and help me open my eyes to all the possibilities. I got to visit all of my favourite movie sets, meet some gorgeous human beings, and remember how much I love music. I am beyond excited to come back this summer and know that this is only the beginning. Till we meet again my love💚 #malibu1992 #COIN #californialove #travelersheart #LA #Lostboys #cjsimssings #aussieaussieaussieoioioi🇦🇺 #joy #iswearilived #Letsdoitagain #foreverfam #proud #inlove #iwantitall #talktoomuch #welcomehome2019

Hey friends/Fam Happy 2019! Life update-ish: 1. Continuing to dye my hair every shade of blue/teal/green I fancy 2. Still singing just sadly not always able to practice the way I’d like. 3. Working for Vans which has been the best retail job I’ve had in a WHILE. 3. Freezing my ass off so staying home a lot these days but having great dance parties with Mum (she’s the bomb) 4. Attempting to get healthy both mentally and physically and drop 10lbs (well 10 more 😂) 5. Celebrating my favourite place in the world cause I’m Aussie at heart wearing my beautiful gifts and eating Vegemite/TimTams/Milo all day. 6. Trying to do something new/exciting every chance I get 7. Cleaning out every area of my life to make space for the important things Love you guys a lot. I’m guna try to post more and get my YouTube in shape too ha! Stay tuned, say hey, & watch the story to see how the day to day is going & laugh !

I think it’s easy to dress something up and make it seem as though it’s a grand gesture of creation, but at the same time to take that same thing strip it back till it’s bare and put it out for the world to see is something far more difficult to achieve. I’ve been trying to do this more and more, both for myself and those around me. Not that many years ago I’d sing these songs behind closed doors, very well knowing that no one would ever see or hear this. Me without makeup in nothing but a T-shirt and shorts, belting out these songs that regardless of my age I felt like I’ve experienced and let what I’ve felt or am currently feeling flow without trying to cover it up. Everyday after work I’ve been belting out as many songs as I can because I’ve yet to find the words that accurately describe how I feel and a melody that captures the emotion. And I do this in hopes that I’ll be better/ready for the day I’m not just singing to my four walls. I don’t know what you need to do to remember the dream you have and to make it feel more tangible but whatever that looks like for you DO IT. Make what’s left of 2018 count and take 2019 in your hands. #cjsimssings #AllIAsk #ChasingPavements #Keepingthedreamalive #herestothefoolswhodream #herestothecreatives #letsdothis

Started the year with GOY (@gangofyouths) and ending it just the same. Remembering to do the thing I love with people I love as often as I can. There’s always a way and it’s always worth it no matter what. I’ll keep daydreaming of the moment that I’ll get to headline something and experience that feeling of people caring about anything I have to say or “sing” but till then here’s to another adventure. To the few of you that take the time to read this or have simply been there consistently I thank you, these unseen years are the ones that count most to me and the days frankly I’ll always be grateful for. Here’s to 2019 may I live my dreams...may we all live out our dreams.
