In 1997, the Simmonds came to attention with the song "Tears Never Dry" which he sang with Lisa Nilsson and almost simultaneously released "I believe in you" and the breakthrough was monumental. Since then, Stephen has written the soundtrack to the film "Rånarna" ("Where's My Love") and established the house band in the television success Cirkus Möller, and the hit song "Adiyeah".

Stephen also did an acclaimed guest appearances of Sarah Dawn Finer on SVT in which they performed the Christmas song "När det lider mot jul". The same interpretation will naturally feature in the Christmas show.

The show takes guests on a Christmas themed journey of soul and R&B. Stephen rarely performs concerts so this is a unique opportunity to experience one of the Sweden’s premier messengers of soul.
