Joost van Gisbergen played guitar in several hardcore and punk rock bands. As a member of For A Few Dollars More, Striving Higher, Downslide, MM and Operation Phoenix he performed live throughout Europe and played on five CDs, an LP and three seven inch EPs, which were released on well-respected indie labels such as Crucial Response and Engineer Records.
Although he had enough outlets for his hardcore and punk songs, it always frustrated Joost a bit that he never got to do anything with the more mellow songs that he'd written under the influence of personal favorites such as Elliott Smith, Cat Stevens, Warm Sounds, The Beatles and The Beach Boys.
From the late Summer of 2010 on, Joost started recording some of his own songs with the help of Nina Kurt (additional vocals), Fourteen Twentysix-frontman Chris van der Linden (production and additional instrumentation) and Tim Antonius (production). You can find the results of several recording sessions from throughout 2010 and 2011 on this page.
