Anette Olzon's pre-NIGHTWISH band, the Swedish AOR act ALYSON AVENUE, has announced the addition of vocalist Arabella Vitanc to the group's ranks. According to the band, "Arabella's voice will not only do justice to the old ALYSON AVENUE material but she will also be key in the development of the new and upcoming songs we are currently busy working on."

The first ALYSON AVENUE demo track to feature Arabella, "Somewhere", is available for streaming and/or download at this location.

Two ALYSON AVENUE songs featuring Olzon are currently available for streaming on the band's MySpace page. Check out the tracks "Free like the Wind" and "I Am (Your Pleasuremaker)" at this location.

Olzon made her recording debut with NIGHTWISH on the band's sixth album, "Dark Passion Play", which came out in September 2007.
