Wingspell is a musical project creating “Renaissance Faerie Gothic” songs, founded by Toronto-based vocalist and composer Chagall Sierra. The sound features ethereal soprano vocals, shimmering pads, distorted guitar, and rocking drum beats! Lyrically, the focus is on love, nature, and loss.
Inspired by the progressive rock of Blackmore’s Night, the neo-classical of Dead Can Dance, and the driving symphonic metal of Within Temptation and Nightwish.
Our Musical Goal: “When the Faerie and Angelic realms collide, and otherworldly music is born of a union both blessed and damned: this is the resulting mystic birth. Haunting love songs – classic, modern covers, and originals,” says Sierra.
Influences: Blackmore’s Night, Within Temptation, Dead Can Dance, Angels of Venice, Nightwish, Lothlorien, Leaves’ Eyes, Lacuna Coil, Evanescence, Beatles, Tool, Deep Forest, Sarah McLachlan, Enya and many more amazing artists.
Genres: Gothic Rock – Synthpop, Symphonic Metal, Celtic Metal, Classical Chamber Music (Neo-Mediaeval), Ambient, Darkwave, Hard Rock.
