“Through the many strange events that have occurred during this pandemic, you could say the friendship between SARAH JEZEBEL DEVA and LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT was an unlikely one, but also to be expected considering their shared musical pasts. After a year of humming and hawing on what to do musically together while throwing sassy comments back and forth at one another on social media, a small idea sparked and turned into the fully symphonic track “Stolen Light ” that you hear today.”
LINDSAY Commented further: “Stolen Light is about taking back your power after enduring a long and grueling abusive relationship. Often verbal and emotional abuse is overlooked compared to physical violence, but the after effects have proven to be equally as fatal in the long run. SARAH and I bonded over our shared struggles we’ve faced in the music industry and this song is an ode to our perseverance, strength, and triumph in taking back our careers and love of singing and creating music.”
Ethereal orchestration provides a delicate and uplifting backdrop for the soaring vocal melodies. “Stolen Light” has a deeply intimate mood exploring the overcoming of personal trials and tribulations.
About LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT and SARAH JEZEBEL DEVA:
LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT is a Juno Nominated, ethereal gothic metal solo artist, harpist and founding member of the chamber black metal band ANTIQVA. SARAH JEZEBEL DEVA is the haunting, dynamic vocalist of TORN BETWEEN TWO WORLDS, and previously performed with the likes of MORTIIS, THERION, ANGTORIA, & NADER SADEK.
Juno nominated singer/Songwriter LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT is honored to have been featured as a guest vocalist on “Hail The Acoustic Destroyer” by legendary Canadian hardcore band CANCER BATS. The song is from the band’s upcoming EP You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions. All proceeds raised via the band’s Bandcamp, as well as, a portion of the proceeds from shirt sales will be donated to Water First NGO, an organization that helps to train interns in water purification in order to help their communities have access to clean drinking water.
Lindsay commented “CANCER BATS are underground kings as far as the hardcore punk scene goes so I was a bit perplexed when Liam reached out asking me to collab on a track. Once he told me it was an acoustic version of ‘Hail Destroyer’ I was like “ok, that makes more sense”. Their acoustic releases over the pandemic have been a real treat and I highly recommend checking them out!”
The band further commented ““For Hail The Acoustic Destroyer we all really wanted to capture the same energy and tension of the song but using a completely different approach from the original,” shares lead vocalist Liam Cormier. “Looking more at it being sparse and looming to convey the “heaviness”. Once that ground work was laid, having Lindsay Schoolcraft’s amazing goth tinged vocals on the track really pushes the song into a new melodic dimension, making the listener forget what the original Hail Destroyer even was.”
Juno nominated singer/songwriter Lindsay Schoolcraft has teamed up with fantasy film score composer Christopher Caouette to release the epic “I May Be One” on Bandcamp.
Lindsay commented “This collaboration, while a new venture, has been such a pleasure to create with Chris. When Chris sent me the first version I knew this song was about hope and finding justice and peace. I then created an Elven Warrior Princess character to write the song around. I truly do believe that one person can make a difference and that’s what I feel this song is about. The final touch of adding guitars and drums really brought this whole track together.”
CHRISTOPHER stands out in the Epic-Fantasy genre with his strong sense of musical storytelling with Celtic, World, Electronic, and Classical influence and raises the bar for what Epic-Fantasy music really can become.
In 2009 “Alandar” made it to the TOP 5 “Best Neo-Classical and Electronic Album of 2009” by Zone Music Reporter.
Canadian Juno nominated singer/songwriter Lindsay Schoolcraft has teamed up with Gaia Guarda to release “I Didn’t Break”, the first single off of the upcoming C Squared Underground Music Special compilation. The compilation will be released on Bandcamp on September 17th 2021 and features friends and clients of C Squared Music a new company formed by Corinne Westbrook and Curtis Dewar that helps bands with their promotion, marketing and sales. The compilation is the first album to be released under the new company’s name.
Gaia commented “I didn’t break’” was born in the depths of the uncertainty of 2020 by two stubborn musicians that decided to do a collaboration, even though they had no access to the studio due to the pandemic restrictions.
“I learned to record in my bathtub, and give a second life to a pantyhose that I had lying around as a pop filter. The fact that the production was such a big challenge makes the song even more special to us. We hope you like it as much as we do! And I do recommend that listen to it while taking a bath, so you can imagine my homemade setup!”
C Squared founders Curtis Dewar and Corinne Westbrook further commented “We are really excited to be releasing our first album under the C Squared banner. When we first formed C Squared a few months ago, we really wanted to be able to work with bands in all aspects, not just PR, marketing and management. With this compilation we will now be releasing our first album and hopefully continue to release select albums over the next few years”.
