Steve Paul Simms is a man on the move in his latest single and lyric video Rolling — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Rolling is a celebration of freedom on the open road, the need to just go, with or without a destination,” the Toronto singer-songwriter explains. “A great driving tune based on a hypnotic guitar riff, it’s a rootsy, bluesy, upbeat tune with acoustic and electric textures … It’s a good song to howl along to.”

Rolling is the third single from his recently released fourth album Ingrid And The Messenger Boy. With his penchant for good, old-fashioned storytelling, the concept album is a charming collection of yarns and fables that hits the sweet spot between legacy and urban legend. Ingrid And The Messenger Boy features tributes to a screen legend (Anything With Ingrid), a classic 1960s songwriter (Goodbye Ellie) and an Ottawa bluesman (Blues For Back Alley John).

An actor by training and a musician by trade, Simms is a well-loved and recognized face in Toronto’s arts and music community, having been featured in more than 60 productions across Canada. A frequent performer with the Tranzac Club, Simms also boasts more than two decades of musical performances. To date, he has penned more than 200 original songs.
