On the Air
A base of alternative rock mixed with chunks of indie, blended to perfection and topped with randomness is the recipe for WAUG's mix. Tune in for everything from Weezer to Kaki King, Coheed & Cambria to Del the Funky Homosapien. If it's good, we play it on WAUG.
Before gracing the Rozz-Tox stage, Sima Cunningham and Charles Rumback stopped by the WAUG studio on the evening of April 23rd. In the newly renovated studio, Sima, along with Charles, played some old favorites and new songs which will be featured on her upcoming EP. Sima also discussed politics, what it’s like to be a musical artist in Chicago, and reflected on the many musical projects that influenced her and ones that she had touched.
Sima Cunningham is a Chicago native that takes influence from the genre of blues, rock, and folk. Starting at the age of 15, she’s been using music as her vehicle for emotional expression. Along with her accompanying guitar, Sima’s crooning voice reaches out to listeners and speaks more than words can do. Previously named a “Woman to Watch Under 30” by the Chicago Sun Times in 2008, Sima has also recorded with several other bands including singing backup for Chance the Rapper. Be on the lookout for her upcoming EP and stay connected by following her Twitter and Soundcloud pages.
