Though he was originally born in Oak Park, Rane simons mostly grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois called Makanda. That's also where he joined my first band with some friends from high school who convinced him to start learning guitar. Half of them ended up going to college in Champaign-Urbana where Rane joined a couple other bands and began developing a passion for singing and songwriting. On a train back to Chicago after seeing a total solar eclipse in his hometown of Makanda in August 2017, he met his girlfriend who has been a big source of inspiration for him to write, record, and produce my first EP. He released Synchronicities exactly a year later!
