Biographical Notes

Chuck Simms was born in Grand Bank, NL, a beautiful small town on the Burin Peninsula. From an early age, he loved to sing. His father would play the accordion and he would sing along with his mother. Chuck left the Island to work with the coast guard in Saint John, New Brunswick, for four years. There he met Camile LeBlanc of the Bunkhouse Boys, a well known musical group. Camile taught Chuck to play the guitar and from then on music was his first love.

Simms left New Brunswick and moved on to Toronto, playing his music wherever he went. He worked at several different jobs but always returned to music. Chuck's unique voice, along with his special talent for writing his own songs, combined with his pleasing personality to make him a favorite with his many fans. His music is a variety of Irish, Newfoundland and Country. He has traveled across Canada from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island and as far north as the Yukon. His music is also played in Europe and charted in Australia, although he has never traveled there.

In May of 2000, Chuck and his wife Ellen moved back to Newfoundland where he makes his home by the salt water. He spends several months of the year in Ontario performing at the many festivals and flea markets. He is a member of the Classic Country Music Reunion (CCMR) and has performed on the main stage at their reunions and jamborees in Trenton, Ontario.
