Thanks for stopping by on my page!Good news! The first album of my new band ReVamp is in stores now! I hope you like it!!! Go to www.revampmusic.com for news, video's and previews :-)
The high school musical made me aware I could sing and that loved being on stage. Ever since that moment back in 1995 (or so ☺ ) I knew music would become my passion in life. In 1997 I joined a melodic metal band named After Forever. The band became more successful then I ever could have dreamed of and music became more then a hobby. I acquired most of my experience as a performer, songwriter and singer working with this band. Next to that I studied music and have been a guest vocalist on several albums and live shows.
In 1999 I started studying on the Rock Academy (like a conservatory for rock and pop music) While studying I learned more about the music industry, singing, performing and teaching. During the third year I started taking vocal lessons at the conservatory. My goal was to learn how to sing in various music and vocal styles; not rock & pop alone but also classical and any other style for that matter.
In the meantime After Forever became a bigger and better known band. In 2000 we released the first album ‘Prison of Desire’. At that time nobody had ever heard of the band yet but that soon changed after this release. The second album ‘Decipher’ made the band grow even more. This album was released in 2001 and After Forever started to become a well-known band on many stages and festivals, nationally as well as internationally.
In 2003 the mini album ‘Exordium’ was released, soon followed by the third full length album ‘Invisible Circles’ in 2004. In the same year I also graduated on the Rock Academy and continued studying (part-time) at the conservatory in Tilburg on music theatre and opera.
I also started to teach more: individual lessons, courses and workshops for singing, performing and lyric- and songwriting.
In 2005 the album ‘Remagine’ came out. After this release After Forever signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast and the Dutch team ‘The Entertainment Group’. With this brand new team we released our self-titled album ‘After Forever’ in 2007.
To make this short story more complete I made a list with events per year. Below that there is some more random info on all kinds of topics. I get many questions about many things and I tried to give answers in this part ☺ to give you a even more complete picture about me.

Shorts facts on a row:
1. Floor is a soprano and has a 4 octaves reach when she sings.
2. Floor got to know many vocal techniques during her studies but she recently got in touch with the ‘Complete Vocal Training’ from the Danish Catherine Sadolin. This method really appealed to her and she is now using this to enrich her lessons.
3. Floor wrote all lyrics for After Forever (but a few on the first two records) But next to lyric writing she also made all the vocal melodies (also for the choirs and the grunt parts) She also writes her own music and got to get better in composing during the writing process of the first album for the project Sinh. She gets to continue ‘practicing’ while writing music for her new metal band!
Floor Facts in random order ☺:
• Floor loves dogs, in particular her own French bulldog named Obi.
• She’s a true Dutch girl being 1.81 m tall ☺
• She likes to work out and tries to go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week.
• She also likes beers and good wines and recently discovered the pleasure of a good glass of whisky.
