History

The project was announced June 5, 2007, the same day that both The Gathering and Anneke van Giersbergen issued separate announcements that van Giersbergen would leave the band in August.

She and her new bandmates laid down some basic tracks for the first album at the Waterfront Studios in Rotterdam and recorded overdubs at The Void in Eindhoven, as well as in her own home studio. Several of these songs were made available on the band's official web site. A track, Ice Water, has been said to feature a string arrangement by Jeffrey Fayman. Additional vocals for the track Lost and Found were done by Kristin Fjellseth, who also wrote the track Sunken Soldiers Ball. Heleen de Witte is said to play flute on unspecified tracks while Timothy Conroy provides some trumpet work. They released their first album called "Air" at the end of 2007, mixed by Jon Anders Narum.[1]

For the week ending July 2, 2009 (first week of release), their second album Pure Air entered the GfK Dutch Charts at No.42, her highest ever chart position.[2]

A third album, titled In Your Room, was released on October 30, 2009.[3]
