Evanescence & Lindsey Stirling Embody Fire and Grace at NJ Show

Evanescence took a risk with their 2017 album Synthesis by reconstructing its material into elegant orchestrations that enhanced aspects of its music that are often ignored. Then it upped the stakes by bringing the production on the road with a rotating cast of symphony members at each stop. The band delivered a riveting performance during Friday Night’s (Aug. 10) date at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J., where the backing ensemble impressively brought to life the classical elements that infuse Evanescence’s music. Following the captivating set was a smart pairing with electric violinist Lindsey Stirling, a co-headliner who energetically balanced the evening.

The two acts utilized the symphony in contrasting ways. Evanescence could have been tempted to pump up the bombast at every turn since its catalog possesses a fair share of melodrama. But the full force of the orchestra was only unleashed when building up to the zenith of highlights including “Bring Me to Life” and “My Heart Is Broken,” increasing its impact.

The same could be said for singer Amy Lee, who alternated between sitting behind a piano and swaying before a mic stand as she delved into every nuance of her vocals. It would have been appropriate to go total diva, but her emotional connection to the material propelled her voice rather than all the wind in her lungs. It especially paid off when she serenaded the crowd with the practically a cappella “My Immortal.” Singing to a galaxy of cell phone lights, Lee won a much deserved standing ovation for her stirring rendition of the ballad.

Six Facts About Evanescence’s Co-Headlining Tour With Lindsey Stirling

Since Evanescence released its multiplatinum debut, Fallen, in 2003, band leader Amy Lee has taken her time in crafting successive albums. Her determination to make quality-driven music has resulted in a limited studio output that includes 2006’s The Open Door and 2011’s Evanescence. It’s a risky approach, but it doesn’t stress her too much.

“I really don’t worry about it. Maybe that sounds crazy, but I feel like too much emphasis is put on the time and maybe not enough on the products,” says the songwriter-performer. “I just want to make something great. If I can’t make something awesome that I’m not ready for or don’t believe in … I won’t make it.”

The dedication of Evanescence’s followers lets her take whatever time she thinks is necessary. “Our fan base has proven to me that it doesn’t really matter how long how it takes. They keep coming back. It’s such a beautiful thing. I hope that continues.”

So when the band dropped 2017’s Synthesis, it was a surprise that instead of delivering all original music, Lee had reconstructed material from the aforementioned albums with an orchestra. After introducing Synthesis with new track “Imperfection,” Evanescence launched a North American tour that ran October-December to support the project. To do it justice, a full orchestra backs the quartet. The run has been captured for the upcoming Synthesis Live CD/DVD that’s due Oct. 12 on Eagle Vision. Lee calls the experience so far “extremely educational and interesting.” [Source]
