WCW Featuring Charlotte Wessels of Delain

“It’s just really weird that the gender of one person in the band defines what kind of music you make! I think that it’s one of the things that really indicates that the bias is still there.” 

 

Today’s woman crush is Charlotte Wessels.  This Dutch beauty is the lead singer for the symphonic metal band Delain.  Not only is Wessels a beauty, but she has the brains to match!  Did you know she has an Art History degree AND a master’s in Gender Studies?!  

In a 2017 interview, Wessels stated that she is not a big fan of the term female-fronted metal.   “It’s just really weird that the gender of one person in the band defines what kind of music you make! I think that it’s one of the things that really indicates that the bias is still there.” 

Originally trained as a jazz vocalist, Wessels has branched out to classical vocals stylings. 

Delain is scheduled to release their upcoming EP “Hunter’s Moon” on February 22nd, 2019.

Delain has also released US and European tour dates for 2019.  Be sure to check their website to see a show near you!
