Save a life – Austin music
DAILY Music  October 12, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...The show highlights the symbiosis that exists between Austin musicians and the homegrown non-profit.

Friends of SIMS Wanna Be Your Dog
Locals cover classics for musicians healthcare provider
DAILY Music  December 14, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...This bit of Stooges redux arrives on the new Friends of SIMS compilation, both a fundraiser for the SIMS Foundation, a vital non-profit supplying musicians with addiction and mental health services, and a tribute to the charity’s namesake inspiration, Pariah bassist Sims Ellison, who took his life in 1995. Sims’ brother and bandmate Kyle, who’s logged time as a touring guitarist for Ministry, Meat Puppets, Butthole Surfers, and Roky Erickson, conceived and orchestrated the album with a simple premise: Austin artists covering his favorite rock & roll songs...."

SIMS Profusely Thanks KGSR
Postmarks  May 13, 2008
"...While many fans of this annual gem may not know it, their purchase means peace of mind for Austin’s musicians. Proceeds benefit the SIMS Foundation, an organization providing individualized mental health and addiction-recovery services for Austin’s musicians and their loved ones since 1995. KGSR could have easily sold this annual compilation for profit, scattered the proceeds among many deserving causes, or even tooted their own horn a bit more..."

Every Day of Your Life
Remembering Sims Ellison, and profiling the SIMS Foundation
Music Story  July 7, 2000, by Margaret Moser
"..."God never closes one door without opening another," says an Irish aphorism, and a local columnist mused in print that a counseling service geared toward musicians would be an appropriate way to remember Sims. Inspired by that, the SIMS (Services Invested in Musicians' Support) Foundation incorporated just over two months after Ellison's death...."

Music Story  November 29, 2002, by Andy Langer
"...Such is the scene every March at the Austin Music Awards, when KGSR's Jody Denberg and Peyton Wimmer pose for their annual photo-op. That, of course, is the occasion of KGSR's donating proceeds from sales of its annual Broadcasts CD to Austin's SIMS Foundation, a nonprofit health care organization providing low-cost mental health services to local musicians..."

Death Takes No Holiday
Mourning two Austin players.
DAILY Music  October 1, 2007, by Margaret Moser
"...Over on his website, his family and former wife and friend Tina posted notice along with a link to three suggested recipients for memorial donations in lieu of flowers. The Oak Hill House, SIMS Foundation, and Animal Trustees of Austin are the chosen organizations, and fine ones they are. I talked to Bosworth on the phone for a while that day but she was terribly shell-shocked by the news, having recorded with him before..."

Columns  April 19, 2002
"...Recent letters to the Chronicle, regarding the SIMS Foundation's inquiry response time, indirectly asks the question: "Is the SIMS Foundation a dependable organization providing acceptable health care services to the community of arts?" From my experience with the Foundation, the answer is: "No." The Foundation does not, as originally intended, provide timely response to those in immediate need of assistance, nor does the Foundation provide information about mental health issues including cause, effect, physicians, and treatments. All this was part of the original Charter and Mission Statement of the Foundation...."

Max Crace & the 1998 Austin Guitar Calendar
Music Story  November 21, 1997, by Andy Langer
"..."It's not unusual for me to go two or three days without sleeping," says Crace. "Only this time, I've set a new personal best -- six and a half days." Not only does Crace's latest project preclude sleep, there's no payday at the end; as photographer and designer of the 1998 Austin Guitar Calendar, the SIMS (Services Invested in Musician Support) Foundation's latest fundraising project, Crace is donating his time..."

'Tis the season to give 'til your ears ring
Music Story  December 10, 2010, by Margaret Moser
"...Few nonindustry organizations are more synonymous with Austin music than the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and the Services Invested in Musician Support Foundation; they're the conjoined twins of Austin music outreach. They tackle the double whammy of keeping the local community in shape physically and mentally...."

Time to get suicide out of the bars and back in 'Heathers' where it belongs
Music Column  July 9, 2004, by Christopher Gray
"...As their slack-jawed friends and loved ones struggle to make sense out of their untimely departures, one especially salient question has surfaced more than once: Where is the SIMS Foundation? Begun in the wake of Pariah bassist Sims Ellison's tragic 1995 suicide, SIMS (Services Invested in Musicians' Support) ostensibly exists for this very purpose: offering at-risk musicians and others in the scene tangible, clinical help – at a greatly reduced cost. So what happened?..."

Council Watch
The delicate business of funding substance abuse programs for musicians.
News Column  November 12, 1999, by Jenny Staff Johnson
"...leaders of our "live music capital" economy? Or a drugged-out drag on the rest of the city? That's the Big Social Question raised by the recent political wrangling over how to liquidate the resources of the recently defunct Music Industry Loan Program. The funny thing is that all parties in the dispute -- the Austin City Council, the Austin Music Commission, and the SIMS Foundation -- agree that a one-time city subsidy for mental health and substance abuse treatment for musicians is an admirable thing..."
