Alwa Glebe is a german artist who is already established as „dark chanteuse“ with her two highly acclaimed solo albums. Not only the german VOGUE magazine is fascinated by her voice: "Dark are the passions that matter on "Will-o´-the wisps" but the cool-clear singing of the Chanteuse Alwa Glebe develops a pull of her very own style" also the New York Virus Mag compared her to Marianne Faithfull, Grace Jones and Nico in one breath. She is currently working on third album. © 2018 STF-Records / © 2018 Cuptose-Records

Biography: Alwa Glebe, born 1960 in Hanover, is involved in the music scene since the late Seventies.

Since the mid-eighthies she spent time to live in San Francisco, Glasgow, Hamburg, Nuremberg and Greiz where she worked on several music and art projects. She is acting as an independent artist.

 "Alwa Glebe possesses the voice of an apparition. The feeling of an abrupt passenger standing still in the opposite direction of traffic during rush hour, simple and confrontational. The only thing that can offer a rivalry for her unique talent is herself. A perfect portrait of desolation." (Michael Wozny, Virus Mag, New York)

 "The voice of an angel, a dark angel" (Jim Kerr, Simple Minds)

 "Like a dark journey into a morbid-fragil Cabaret" (Kym Gnuch, SONIC SEDUCER Music Magazine)

 "Dark are the passions that matter on "Will-o´-the wisps" but the cool-clear singing of the Chanteuse Alwa Glebe develops a pull of her very own style" (Bernd Skupin, VOGUE )

 "Another dimension, a peculiar music, a realm of itself...distinctive!" (Doru Atomei, Kogaionon Underground Magazine, Romania)

 "As can be seen from Alwa Glebe's migraine inspired work, migraine experiences can also be transformed into works of art without the artist's conscious choice to do so either on her own decision or acting  on someone else's request. Moreover, her work shows that such migraine-inspired artwork can achieve other functions than expressing and communicating the experiences that occur as signs and symptoms of  migraines of sufferers' reactions to the disease: as a matter of fact, all of the functions that have hitherto been attributed to good art by  artists, philosophers of art and art scientiests. That is, migraine-inspired art is art." (Dr. Klaus Podoll, NEUROLOGY OF MUSIC, London)
