AUTUMN in February 2008 announced the addition of singer Marjan Welman to the group's ranks. She replaced Nienke de Jong, who left the band in January 2008.
Within the Dutch rock scene, Marjan is considered to be a promising talent with her warm voice and perfect timing. Her vocal contribution on the AYREON album "01011001" received outstanding reviews and shows a singer who stands her ground between a selection of highly acclaimed international vocalists.
