Aurelio Voltaire

Often described as a modern-day renaissance man, Aurelio Voltaire is an accomplished singer-performer, author, and creator of films, animation, toys, and home decor.

As an internationally touring musician for nearly 30 years, Voltaire is at the forefront of the Gothic and Dark Cabaret genres. Mixing mirth with the macabre, his music becomes increasingly sought after around Halloween. Walk through a Spirit Halloween and you’re bound to hear some of his songs from the Cartoon Network show, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Voltaire has released 13 full-length studio albums, as well as a collection of his Halloween hits.

When not touring or recording, Voltaire can be seen in his informative and hilarious YouTube series, Gothic Homemaking. Like a young Vincent Price taking over for Martha Stewart, he demonstrates how to turn a boring home into a Gothic lair. The New York Times published a feature on Voltaire, calling him, "The Martha Stewart for Macabre Homemakers" and "a lifestyle guru to people who embrace spookiness in all seasons."

Gothic Homemaking can be seen on YouTube @TheLairofVoltaire.
