The WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP is a soulful and sophisticated celebration of self-compassion, authenticity, emotional healing, and fearless femininity. Kimia’s poignant and relatable lyrics and heartfelt vocals are inspired by her broad cultural background and reveal resonant themes of bravery, vulnerability, and self-reflection. “I like to emphasize the things we have in common and can all relate too,” she says. “I want to build bridges, not fences.” KIMIA PENTON produced her WHERE THE RAIN FALLS EP alongside guitarist, co-producer, and co-writer Kelyn Crapp. The pair shares a self-described “nerdy” love of classical music, jazz, and literature. The two also share a tireless work ethic and an unspoken intuitive connection that began on Kimia’s previous album, Lessons from Life and Love.
Select album stunners on the new release include “Alive Again,” “Stepping Stones,” and “Where the Rain Falls.” The lush and folk-tinged “Alive Again” is a lighthouse beckoning to those lost on a journey in darkness. Kimia’s vocals manage to be sage and sensual on the track, offering the promise of a fresh start. The poignant piano ballad “Stepping Stones” is a message of gratitude to Kimia’s parents, who made many sacrifices so she could soar with opportunities. The elegant rusticity of “Where Rain Falls” recalls Van Morrison. Here, Kimia shares her gifts as a violinist, and showcases some of her finest lyrics, including the standout line “Where the rain falls, life grows.” Another treat is a recent video release of Kimia’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In the Wind.”
