Jutta Weinhold

Jutta Weinhold is a German Rock singer and frontwoman of Velvet Viper.

Heavy Metal

fter Weinhold had already sung in amateur bands in the late 1960s, she was hired for the role of "Sheila" in the musical Hair in 1969 and for the musicals Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar in 1972. This was followed in 1974 by appearances with Amon Düül II and in the television program disco with the song Cadillac ("...fahr doch weg"). From 1975 Jutta Weinhold played blues sessions with the Kaftan Blues Band. In the haze of the Hamburg rock scene, she released the LP "Coming" under her own name in 1976, followed by the album "Jutta Weinhold" in 1978. From 1976 to 1978, she was a guest musician with Udo Lindenberg; this collaboration resulted in Udo Lindenberg's first live album Livehaftig in 1979, on which she sang all the female vocal parts. In the same year, the Jutta Weinhold band contributed the opener Teddy to the sampler Mach 'nen Bogen um die Drogen, a production of the Berlin Senate. After releasing the German-language album "Volksmusik" with the band Breslau in 1982, she came under unfounded suspicion of sympathizing with right-wing ideas due to the at least misleading name and provocative lyrics.

In 1985, she founded the band Zed Yago, with whose concept albums she co-founded the genre of dramatic metal. The Zed Yago story is based on the experiences of the fictional daughter of the Flying Dutchman. Due to a legal dispute over the band name, this concept was later continued under the names Velvet Viper and Weinhold, without being able to build on the success of Zed Yago from the late 1980s.

In addition to these projects, which combine heavy metal with elements of classical music, Jutta Weinhold is a sought-after session and studio musician. Her expressive and powerful voice is suitable for rock, blues and gospel.

In October 2011, Jutta Weinhold published her first book "Die Tochter des Fliegenden Holländers: Auf der Suche nach der verlorenen PhantaSIE", which once again revolves around the daughter of the Flying Dutchman.

Jutta Weinhold has been performing with the Jutta Weinhold Band (JWB) since 2012. Band members are former band colleague Claus Reinholdt († 2018), also known as Bubi "The Schmied" Blacksmith, Zed Yago (drums) and Carsten "Sharky" Meyer (bass). The quartet is completed by Kai Reuter "Das Reuterbrett" on guitar, who also plays guitar in Jutta Weinhold's Akustik Randale.
