The Charismatic Voice

Aug 3, 2022

This week, we continue this conversation with Disney queen turned vocal beast and Arch Enemy frontwoman, Alissa White-Gluz. 

We take a deep dive into her vocal technique, specifically differentiating how she approaches harsh and clean vocals. We talk about veganism, why she thinks about her vocals like painting, and how she thinks about her voice in vivid textures and colors. It’s amazing how those scary and beautiful sounds are produced by one of the greatest animal lovers on the planet.

Alissa also walks us through how she chooses her costumes and gear. Find out why heels aren’t for every singer, and why YOU should purchase the new Arch Enemy album which releases on August 12.

Tune in because this episode features some of the best advice I’ve ever heard on how to select a good microphone!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How she conceptualized the demon headdress
  • How heels can negatively impact singing
  • The parallels between painting and phonation
  • How to create harsh vocals without engaging your true vocal cords
  • The two throat tubes: larynx vs. esophagus
  • Alissa’s video game character Queen Beast
