Jan Hellriegel's debut album It's My Sin arrived in 1992, aided by the top five success of her first solo single, 'The Way I Feel'. The West Auckland-raised songwriter had already spent five years in all woman band Cassandra's Ears. A second solo album, the Australian-recorded Tremble, saw her being named Most Promising Vocalist at the 1996 NZ Music Awards. Hellriegel took time away from recording after 1999 single 'Melusine'. She acted on Street Legal, and began working in music publishing.
