Genre: Rap, pop
25-year-old Szim grew up in the Danish town of Søborg. She got her first guitar at the age of six, but it was first eleven years later that she started writing lyrics and rapping seriously. In the beginning, she did it mainly for her own pleasure, until her cousin told her about a local hiphop-studio in Gladsaxe. She started visiting the studio once a week through a longer period of time, where she would work in depth with her lyrics and rap-technique. Her musical quest came to fruition in 2020, when she released her debut-single “Pokus”.
Quickly she released the followup “Dårlig Til At Svare”, which went straight into second place of Bobler on Danish National Radio P3 and stayed there for five weeks straight. Danish music mag Soundvenue wrote in high praise of the single: “On her but only second single Szim serves up a delicious piece of club pop-rap. Fluently she switches between singing and rapping, while the delicate housebeat of Arto Eriksen (red. Yo Johnny) meticulously underpins her flow.”
Since then Szim has released even more singles and played countless shows both as a headlining act and as support for several high prolific acts. Her latest shows include Distortion and LiveCamp at Smukfest.
