Bonnie Sims began singing as soon as she could walk, and has been at home onstage nearly as long. Her father, Mike Cruciger, is a banjo player, songwriter and career musician, and gave Bonnie her first Martin guitar at age twelve. She picked up the mandolin at fourteen and toured for the next five years with her father, playing in and around Texas.

She then attended South Plains College where she earned a double major in Mandolin and Vocals as well as Best Female Vocalist in 2006 and 2007 and Best Female Instrumentalist in 2007.   

In 2010, after moving to Colorado, Bonnie continued her life-long pursuit of singing and making music by starting Bonnie & the Clydes.
