On September 29, 2005 -- exactly 6 years after Do As Infinity formed -- the band split up.
But that's not the end of the story...
Unlike Ryo & Dai (who released their solo CDs in July 2005), Van waited to make her solo debut. When she finally resurfaced in March 2006, the world was surprised.
Gone are her hard rock roots from Do As Infinity. Van's new style of music has a jazz/pop feel to it. And her songs are slower than before. Her debut album, "Farewell", couldn't have a better name...
But one thing that hasn't changed is her gorgeous, powerhouse voice. Her new style may take some getting used to, but soon you'll find yourself enjoying her songs. They have this magical way of growing on you. Maybe it's 'cuz of Van's voice...or maybe it's 'cuz of her lyrics. You be the judge...since I'll provide you with enough samples, translated lyrics, information and downloads to do the job. ^_^
