Rain Spirit is the first solo record of Canadian artist/producer Isaac Symonds.
At age 20, Isaac self-produced and engineered this recording of all original material. He also sang and played every instrument on the album. The result is a well-crafted, heart filled and sometimes ethereal, sonic experience.

Released in spring 2012, Rain Spirit is a full-length studio album with 12 tracks; each song features Isaac's unique arrangement of multiple voices, solid rhythms and warm textures.

Biography

Music is my passion.
I was raised in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. I've been composing and recording my own music for about 10 years.

I have always played in bands and I enjoy collaboration at least as much as solo work. When it comes to music, my interests in engineering and producing music are as strong as my interests in composing and performing.

Collapse

Collapse
by: Isaac Symonds
Album: Rain Spirit

When the sun stops giving
with no one to pick it up
we’ll survive from an instinct
that was long ago lost.

And the moon stood still
with remorse for our birth
a thousand years go by
we were nothing but a curse.

And when our time has come, I’ll hold you
all alone again at last.
And when our time is done, I’ll hold you
bracing from the earths collapse.

When the trees stop growing
and the rivers all dry up
we’ll move all our people
just to fuck it up!

We’re stuck in a lifestyle of taking,
not thinking of what we leave behind.
Now all that is left is an ending,
well how could you or I believe in something else.

And when our time has come, I’ll hold you
all alone again at last.
And when our time is done, I’ll hold you
bracing from the earths collapse.

A thousand years go by
we were nothing but a curse.

Gone

Gone
by: Isaac Symonds
Album: Rain Spirit

Nobody knows a thing
You just disappeared
No one knows why or where
You’ll never see yourself again

Take a look outside
Look up into the sky
It’s time to take a hint
Wake up and let it shine

Nobody knows a thing
You just disappeared
No one knows why or where
You’ll never see yourself again

Your heavy secret can’t fill the void
the way your love once did
Come back to us now we’re waiting for you
to turn yourself around

So far away
without a life or identity
You haven’t known yourself better than this.

Nobody knows a thing
You just disappeared
No one knows why or where
You’ll never see yourself again

Highway

Highway

window…
open so the cool air can calm me.
window…
displaying falling flakes and opportunity.
I’m hoping for that one thing to change.
I’m praying for you now.

Highway driving scenery…
I remember when it used to be mellow,
singing to our favorite song,
brought me to a meltdown.

Back Into the Night

Back Into the Night.
by: Isaac Symonds
Album: Rain Spirit

Firefly in the night sky
shooting like a star
across the land

Firefly in the night sky
tell me what you’ve seen
and where you’ve been tonight.

If I was a firefly
I would just fly
back into the night.

Firefly in the daylight
no one knows who you are
or what it’s like to be you.

Firefly in the sunlight
no one knows what you mean
when you tell them your story.

If I was a firefly,
I would just fly
back into the night

back into her light

Listen Up

Listen up
by: Isaac Symonds
Album: Rain Spirit

It’s the same old story every night
you’re all boozed up with a slurring mouth
yeah keep doing what your doing now
I can’t love you when you’re so far down

listen up I need you
you know I’ve done my best
so now I’m gone
listen up I need you

It’s so hard to see you hurt yourself
the way you act, I just don’t understand
you’re so distant you don’t hear me now
I can’t reach you when you’re so far down

listen up I need you
you know I’ve done my best
so now I’m gone
listen up
I need you
