Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey Stirling (born September 21, 1986) is an American violinist, dancer, and songwriter. In 2010, at the age of 23, Stirling was a quarter-finalist on season five of America's Got Talent.

Lindsey uploaded a live violin cover of My Immortal to YouTube on July 31, 2013.[1]

In 2017, she made a guest appearance on the Evanescence song Hi-Lo playing violin. This is the second Evanescence song ever to feature an external artist (the first being Paul McCoy on Bring Me To Life).

Amy: She is amazing. I can't WAIT for you to finally hear Hi-Lo, and the amazing new life she brought to the song!!!


Episode four of Inside Synthesis features Lindsey in the studio recording Hi-Lo. Amy speaks about how she thought of Lindsey after talks of a guest featuring on the song took place;

Vin1.jpg Amy: We had a piece in one of the new songs that felt like it could use one more thing, and we talked about the possibility of having a guest and I thought of Lindsey right away. She's the very definition of somebody who doesn't fit inside of a box. She really paved her own path. I respect that so much. It's very interesting that we've never, like, met, because I think creatively we have a lot in common. Vin2.jpg

Lindsey talks about her admiration for Amy Lee as an artist in the episode;

Vin1.jpg Lindsey: Not only do I love [Amy's] voice and her music, but I love that she is so incredibly- you can tell she's very creatively involved in her craft. You know, you can just feel that about certain artists, and I can feel that with Amy in the work that she does. Vin2.jpg

Amy and Lindsey finally met each other when Amy attended Lindsey's Warmer in the Winter show in Portland, Oregon on December 19, 2017.[2]

On March 5, 2018, Lindsey uploaded a short video to all of her social media accounts labelled "Dreams coming true, Summer 2018", and the video featured Lindsey jokingly talking about being a "casual" Evanescence fan, with the camera panning out to band merch covering the walls as well as Lindsey wearing an Evanescence t-shirt and gloves. Her phone then rings with Bring Me to Life as her ringtone with text from Amy Lee saying "What are you doing this summer?", the screen then cuts to the Evanescence logo with the words "Summer 2018".[3] The next day Evanescence confirmed that they will indeed be touring with Lindsey in the Summer. The tour dates were posted for the United States and Canada which will take place from July 6th until September 8th.[4]

Lindsey and Amy held a live Facebook Q&A on April 30, 2018 where they answered fan's questions about their upcoming tour.[5]

In 2019, Amy Lee sang on the song Love Goes On and On from Lindsey's album Artemis. Then in 2020, Amy and Lindsey performed a special rendition of Evanescence's new single, Wasted on You.

On August 14, 2020, Evanescence's single Use My Voice was released that features guest vocals of Lindsey Stirling and several other female vocalists.[6]
