Who's Who of Delerium Guest Artists

Some time after Karma came out, the track "Silence" became hugely popular, quite possibly due to the fact that Sarah McLachlan sang on it as a guest artist. I suspect the reaction in Nettwerk probably went along the lines of "Cool! Guest artists = success! Let's do an album with every track having a guest artist!". And so Delerium began their guest artist phase.

This phase has so far consisted of Poem and Chimera "But," you may be asking "Who are all these people who have guest artisted on these albums? I haven't heard of some of them before!" If so, I've taken the liberty of preparing this page so that you won't have to bother doing all the research!
