1+1=1 (2010)
The Art of Letting Go.. (2007) EP



Simon Rain is a singer and a songwriter based in Stockholm, Sweden.

His debut album 1+1=1 has just been completed in July (2010). It is a self-produced effort, with all music and lyrics written by Simon Rain. Lyrically, the songs deal with the existential topics of singularity, purpose, relationships with others and oneself, love, loneliness, etc.

The sound varies from flamboyant pop-rock (The Screen, Child) to colorful, mesmerizing singer/songwriter melodies (Alone, 1+1=1, Visions).

The songs Rain and The Screen have been featured in national music contests like Metro on Stage and Svensktoppen Nästa, with a considerable number of votes and positive reviews. The Screen was selected among the top finalists at Svensktoppen Nästa (2010) and presented on P4 SverigesRadio, Stockholm.

The album 1+1=1 comes three years after Simon's first original EP- The Art of Letting Go..(2007). The single Coming Home was placed at #18 (out of ca 2000 songs) at the Metro Music Challenge (2008) music contest.

Simon Rain's involvement with music dates back to when he was five years old and had just started taking lessons in cello and ear-training. After more than eight years of classical music, he decided to switch onto the guitar. He continued developing his skills through college. After graduating from university with a business degree and a short employment, Simon was accepted, as the only guitar player for the year, to study jazz performance at the Prins Claus Conservatoire in Groningen, Holland. Under the New York Comes to Groningen program, he studied with prominent jazz musicians and teachers such as Brian Lynch, David Berkman, Ralph Peterson Jr., and others. Discovering his love for singing and composition, Simon moved on to follow his own musical journey as a singer/songwriter.
