Biography

Søren Nystrøm Rasted (born Søren Rasted on June 13, 1969 in Blovstrød, Denmark) is a Danish musician, producer and songwriter. He plays keyboard, guitar and sings backing vocals. He is one of the four members of Danish-Norwegian pop band Aqua, and is married to the Aqua vocalist Lene Nystrøm.

Rasted and Claus Norreen were voted, in the US, two of the ten best pop songwriters/producers who have ever come out of the Scandinavian pop scene.

Søren Rasted married Lene Nystrøm on August 25, 2001 in Las Vegas. After living in London for many years, the couple moved to Denmark in 2004, to live there permanently. On November 6, 2004, Lene Nystrøm gave birth to their first child, a daughter named India. The couple had a second child, a boy named Billy, in spring of 2006.

Rasted is probably the most successful songwriter to ever come out of Denmark. He is a member of the Danish pop-dance group Aqua, with as many as 10 top 10 hits. He and his fellow band member Claus wrote and produced the two Aqua albums Aquarium and Aquarius. Aqua was formed in 1994 and split up in 2001, but reunited in 2008. The band sold more than 28 million records worldwide, and appeared in the Guinness Book of Records as the only debut band with three “self penned” Number One hits in the UK. Rasted has received more than 140 Gold and Platinum albums (and received a Diamond album in Canada for 1. mill sold albums), including awards for best songwriter/producer. Aqua announced their comeback (as a live band), in 2008.
