It all started with Ayreon's frontman Arjen Anthony Lucassen being impressed by a recording he received from Marcela Bovio, the lead singer of Elfonía. She had joined a contest for guest artists on the new Ayreon album. She won this competition and can be heard on Ayreon's The Human Equation singing the part "Wife". Arjen wanted to create more music with Marcela after the Ayreon album was finished, so he created a new band.
Arjen also selected Lori Linstruth, Johan van Stratum, Davy Mickers, and Alejandro Millán, and started Stream of Passion. Their first release was Embrace the Storm. Because the members lived thousand of miles apart (The Netherlands, Sweden, and Mexico), the album was mostly written over the internet.
On 4 March 2007, Arjen said in an interview on his website that he was going to quit the band: Because I will be fully concentrating on the new Ayreon for at least the next year, I have no more time for SoP, so I quit the band. It would be unfair to have them wait until I'm ready, especially now things are going so well for SoP. Arjen also stated that SoP would continue without him.
A few days later, a message on the Stream of Passion website said that Lori and Alejandro also had decided to leave the band and focus on their own personal lives and musical projects. The message on the website stated that this is not the end of the band, and the remaining members are already busy writing music for a new album.
From 2007 on, the band consisted of vocalist, lyricist, and violinist Marcela Bovio, bassist Johan van Stratum, keyboardist Jeffrey Revet, guitarist Eric Hazebroek, guitarist Stephan Schultz, and drummer Martijn Peters.
In April of 2016 the band announced via Facebook that they would be separating at the end of the year.
