The two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning orchestral alternative rock band Evanescence hit the music scene with the 2003 landmark debut album Fallen. It features global hits Bring Me to Life” and “My Immortal,” also featured in the Daredevil soundtrack, as well as “Going Under” and “Everybody’s Fool.” Fallen is one of only eight albums in the history of the chart to spend at least a year on the Billboard Top 50.

In 2016 and early 2017, Evanescence lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura released their fourth album and most ambitious release to date, titled Synthesis. Released Fall 2017 on BMG, the band worked in the studio with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell.

Synthesis featured two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favorites re-imagined with a live orchestra and electronica. Evanescence launched the “Synthesis Live” tour in North America last fall. Augmented by Synthesis producer & live electronicist, Will Hunt, cellist & composer Dave Eggar & conductor Susie Seiter, the band combines their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra. The group truly delivered a transcendent concert experience.

In the over five years since the release of Lindsey Stirling 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21stcentury’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music.

Lindsey Stirling.

After bowing at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Dance/Electronic Album Chart, holding #1 on the Classical Album Chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album,” her sophomore opus “Shatter Me would not only garner an RIAA Gold certification, but it would rank as the #2 Dance/Electronic Album and #1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts.

Her literary debut The Only Pirate at the Party—co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey—became a New York Times Bestseller. Lindsey’s third-studio album Brave Enough, debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, went on to score the #1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album”.

Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.

The two artists recently collaborated on the song, “Hi-Lo” from the latest Evanescence album, Synthesis, which features a virtuosic violin solo by Lindsey Stirling.  Listen to the track HERE.

 Thus far, the media has offered high praise for Evanescence’s live show.
