nion

Dutch artist nion has released several albums: 'Lost In Love' (2007/2012), 'The Void' (2009), 'Quest' (2011), 'Sonnets by Susan Evance' (in two volumes) (2016) and, most recently 'Thy Delightful Shade (2017).

From the project 'Thy Delightful Shade', a first single was released in 2013: 'Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee', after the poem by Emily Bronte. Thy Delightful Shade is an ongoing project in which the artist intends to set English poetry to music. Further single releases in 2014 were 'The Deserted House' (Alfred Lord Tennyson), 'The Tree' (Anne Finch) and 'Times Go By Turns' (Saint Sir Robert Southwell), and recently 'Ode To Pity' (William Collins). The album 'Thy Delightful Shade' has been released in February 2017.

'Sonnets by Susan Evance', explores the melancholic poetry of this forgotten 19th century poet. 26 of her sonnets were set to music.

The first three albums are more mainstream, although 'Quest' has also been described as a torch song album.

Also released are compilation albums, one containing new remixes from the albums 'Lost In Love' and 'The Void' ('Extended Remixes 2013') and one containing reworked ballads from the first three albums, as wel as four new tracks ('Ballads 2007-2014'). In 2015, a compilation of all single releases to date was added, titled 'Singles 2007-2014' (in two volumes).

A free sampler containing ten full length tracks can be downloaded exclusively from CD Baby, as well as extended play versions of the singles 'Tonight' and 'The Phoenix', both containing three bonus tracks.

Future projects include an album sung in Latin.
