STRATOVARIUS' brand-new vocalist Katriina Wiiala (a.k.a. "Miss K") spent the last four years fronting a "melodic hard rock" band called AURORA K, with whom she performed a number of gigs in addition to recording a two-song single, titled "11th Hour".
According to Katriina's official biography (posted on AURORA K's web site), the singer "had gained experience in a 3-girl-sing-along-to-playback-music show group" prior to joining AURORA K. In addition, "Katriina has never been as fanatically music oriented as some [of the other members of AURORA K] are. She listens to all kinds of music nowadays. Some of her favorites include: JAMIROQUAI, DURAN DURAN, WHITNEY HOUSTON, DESTINY'S CHILD, drum 'n' bass music..."
