There are several artists with the name Gretchen: 1) A Christian female-fronted Gothic metal band 2) A Brazillian singer. 3) A German duo founded in 1998 in Berlin. 4) A Canadian surf/noise band from Calgary. http://gretchen.bandcamp.com/ 1) The gothic band Gretchen's sound has a somewhat ethereal but upbeat rock sound described as a cross between several different artists. However, they excel with a style all their own, balancing heavy guitar tones and ethereal melodic melodies with mature song writing and catchy hooks.
