Sharon Janny den Adel is a Dutch singer, songwriter and fashion designer, best known as the lead vocalist and one of the main songwriters in the Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation. She has been a performing musician since the age of 14, and is a founding member of Within Temptation, along with Robert Westerholt, in 1996.
In 2017, den Adel announced on a Dutch TV-show, the first single for her solo project My Indigo, also entitled “My Indigo”, would be released. According to her, the project was originally not intended to be released for the general public as it was for her a form to deal with personal problems, and also a writer’s block for composing with Within Temptation. After two years composing for herself and with regained inspiration to write with her former band, den Adel decided to share the project publicly.
