Seventh Harmonic was formed by Caroline Jago in 1999, initially as a solo instrumental project, but in time evolving into a three piece with violinist Éilish McCracken and various vocalists. The band gradually made waves on the international ethereal scene, although the powerful and experimental nature of the sound did not fit entirely into that genre. After self-releasing three albums and making appearances on national UK TV and radio, the founder members decided to take a break and focus on their involvement with other projects, including Sol Invictus and Sorrow. However, in 2009, the attention of Sweden-based Arcana vocalist Ann-Mari Thim was caught, whose lyrical vision and soprano vocals perfectly matched the transcendental nature of the music. This new partnership with Caroline brought the full power of their neoclassical sound into dramatic focus, and the newly expanded live band were immediately asked to play a number of European festivals, which saw them experimenting with old and new songs before finally defining their rich bombastic sound, complete with breathtaking visuals.
This was finally unveiled on the new album, entitled 'Garden of Dilmun'. Based on three concepts of the muses, the wheel of the year, and the seasons of the heart, the CD comes with a lavishly illustrated 16 page booklet. Released in May 2011 on Out of Line Records, it has received rapturous reviews, with Zillo christening it 'Neoclassical/Heavenly Voices album of the year'. The album is available from all major retailers, the band's website and Facebook page, and direct from Out of Line Records - http://www.outoflineshop.de/
