Biography

Kingfisher Sky is a Dutch progressive metal band from The Hague, South Holland.

The Story of Kingfisher Sky:

In 2001 Ivar de Graaf made one of the toughest decisions of his life: he decided to leave the successful Dutch band Within Temptation to concentrate on his own music.

Together with singer Judith Rijnveld he explored a way to combine both their influences into songs that didn’t bound themselves to a specified genre or style. With influences like Porcupine Tree and Kate Bush, but also Classical singers as Cecilia Bartoli and traditional Folk music in their mind they started recording songs in their home studio in 2005.

When they finished seven songs they approached Suburban Records. Judith and Ivar signed the deal in november 2006. Eric Hoogendoorn was the first member to join the band playing the bass guitar. In January 2007 Daan Janzing was introduced to Ivar and Judith by Ruud Jolie, (Ivar’s former colleague from Within Temptation). After a short audition on guitar Daan joined Kingfisher Sky. In March George van Olffen joined the band on keys. Because of the beautiful solo in the song ‘Through my Eyes’ on the demo and his 15-year old friendship with Ivar, Edo van der Kolk completed Kingfisher Sky.

In May 2007 the band Kingfisher Sky recorded their first album ‘Hallway of Dreams’ produced by Jochem Jacobs (Textures) and Bouke Visser (Split Second Sound). Kingfisher Sky’s debutalbum ‘Hallway of Dreams’ was released in Oktober 2007 by Suburban Records. Suburban Records introduced Kingfisher Sky to SOZ Concerts and they started headlining in The Netherlands.
