Chelsea Wolfe is a singer/songwriter and eponymous full band started in 2009 out of Los Angeles, California. Her style has been described as “doom folk”, and her music has been described as a “specific brand of drone-metal-art-folk”. She joined us for our 5GB series before her show at the Rock & Roll Hotel.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
I’m pretty sure it was Hal Ketchum at the California State Fair. My childhood consisted of a lot of country music.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
My favorite shows are the ones where the sound/atmosphere/mood are all just right. Regardless of if everything is just right though, I always try my best to lose myself in the songs and give all of myself to the audience. I’m really grateful that folks come to my shows and feel the music.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
I played La Route Du Rock in France a couple summers ago and watched Blonde Redhead from the side stage during their set. They are so beautiful and are one of my favorite bands so that was a real treat.
Gig you would most like to play?
I love to play festivals with a lot of amazing bands.. and it would be an honor to open for Blonde Redhead of course speaking of them!
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
am having a dream tour at the moment playing with one of my good friends who also happens to have a great musical project, King Dude.
Catch Chelsea Wolfe at Rock & Roll Hotel.
