Former Cradle Of Filth keyboardist / backing vocalist turned solo artist Lindsay Schoolcraft has checked in with the following update:
“Let’s just call a spade a spade; you know I’m a huge Evanescence fan and I’m pretty sure if you like my music, you are a big fan of them, too. Well, the day has finally come! Thanks to my dear friend and co-collaborator Gaia Guarda, we combined our sounds to cover the song ‘Cloud Nine’ from The Open Door album.
You know I’m a HUGE nerd when it comes to cover songs, so I promise you this sounds not much like the original at all. We replaced the guitars with distorted cello and harp just because we can.
To get a first listen and own this track right now, join my my Patreon at Darkling Tier and up. ‘Cloud Nine’ is my 40th exclusive song on this platform. I hope you’ll join the album making fun and grab all this rare music while you still can!”
Lindsay recently checked in with the following:
“This one is rather special because it’s the result of community. Community of musicians and community of fans.
The track was originally something I orchestrated that didn’t make a cut a few years back, but I loe how on Patreon I can just throw up my lost demos and the community there decides what path I go down next. I definitely have not been on the heavy train much the past few years, but it was time to change that.
The minute I came across this demo I knew it had to be another duet with the one and only Sarah Jezebel Deva and along the way the lovely and talented Mustis lended his piano talents (I’m still over the moon about that). I also couldn’t have done it without the super talented team that came on board.
Anyways, due to marketing school I’m labeling this as my heaviest solo track yet: Blackened Gothic Metal. But you can decide that for yourself. It’s rather perfect for this time of year.”
