Despite coronavirus upending her world tour to support her latest #1 album, Artemis, Lindsey Stirling has found a variety of new ways to connect with her worldwide fanbase, including a charity outreach. To help families with dire economic during COVID-19, Stirling created the charity outreach program The Upside Fund and has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to help since it’s launch in April.

“All of us have felt the effects of COVID-19,” shares Stirling. “If this would have happened when I was just starting out, it could have been the end of my career. With so many people at risk of losing everything, I knew I had to do something. I started encouraging my fans who are struggling financially to apply for assistance through my website so that I can try to help. Those of us fortunate enough to be able to give back have a responsibility to do whatever we can to help those who are in jeopardy during this hard time. It’s time for us to come together with our communities and lift where we stand.”
Stirling has also been creating content during quarantine such as her weekly virtual series String Sessions, which recently launched as a full podcast on all platforms. String Sessions began in early May and has featured Andy Grammer, Amy Lee from Evanescence, JP Saxe x Julia Michaels, Gabby Barrett and Johnny Rzeznik of Goo Goo Dolls. This week’s episode features GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel and showcases Jewel’s latest single “Grateful
“It was so fun to work with an iconic artist like Jewel but, even more than loving the song, I love who she is and what she stands for,” adds Stirling. “In our interview, she shared a lot about her personal story, and it left me feeling so uplifted and inspired.”
Additionally, Stirling has rescheduled her Artemis World Tour for 2021. Supporting her fifth studio album Artemis, the 35-date North American outing, featuring special guests Kiesza and Mako, will begin July 3rd, 2021 in Kansas City.
