Vic Simms


From La Perouse in Sydney, Vic Simms was discovered by Col Joy at the age of 11 and became a child music star, releasing his first single (‘Yo-Yo Heart’) at the age of 15 and sharing the stage with Australian rock ‘n’ roll royalty. Vic’s first album (‘The Loner’), now considered to be one of the most significant albums of Aboriginal expression and experience, was recorded inside Bathurst Prison while Vic was an inmate. In 2009, ‘The Loner’ was added to the National Film and Sound Archives.
