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

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

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)

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').

A free sampler containing ten full length tracks can be downloaded here from CD Baby.

Future projects include an album sung in Latin.
