Simon Kvamm (born 18 February 1975 in Silkeborg) is a Danish-Faroese actor and singer. He is best known as one of the founding members of the Danish rock band Nephew, where he is the lead vocalist and keyboard player. He is also well known for his acts in the Danish cult show Drengene fra Angora. He is also part of pop duo De Eneste To alongside Peter Sommer.
Kvamm graduated from Silkeborg Gymnasium in 1994. He trained and studied to become a journalist at the Danish School of Journalism in Aarhus, but did not end up completing the training. He had a spell as a football player with Olympia Århus København.
Simon Kvamm is best known as one of the founding members of the Danish rock band Nephew, where he is the lead vocalist and keyboard player. The band had their breakthrough in 2004 with their second album USADSB, and had several hits in Denmark such as Igen og Igen, Superliga, En Wannabe Darth Vader and Movie Klip, which have won them several Danish national music awards, including 6 GAFFA awards (two of which were Best Danish Singer and Best Danish Band). In 2010, Simon formed the duo De Eneste To (literally The Sole Two in Danish) with his good friend and colleague of many years, Peter Sommer. The duo's first album, self-titled De Eneste To, had immediate success and was certified platinum in January 2011.
He is also known from the Danish comedy series Drengene fra Angora, where he plays the demented Dutch cyclist Pim de Keysersgracht, the motorcycle gang member Baune, one of the three Russians from joke hours Gagarin, and the studio host Simon (when he's Simon, he's mainly himself). Simon credits his acting with helping to develop his stage persona and create songs. He considers himself a musician first and an actor on the side.
Kvamm is married to journalist Stine Ellerbæk, and together they have daughters Elinor Kvamm Ellerbæk (born December 2, 2006) and Alice (born in 2011). Simon has a four-years younger brother, Stefan Kvamm, who is an anthropologist and musician in the underground band The Wong Boys.
