The release of their debut-CD For Who You Are in june 2002 on Reflections Records proved they're on the cutting edge of emotion, intensity, passion, power and melody. Reactions have been great, reviews are raving, they've been on the cover of several magazines, were picked to get an Essent Award and apppeared at Jan Douwe Kroeske's 2 Meter Sessies.
