Lindsay Schoolcraft is a singer, songwriter, harpist, and pianist from the city of Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. She was discovered and recruited by British extreme heavy metal band Cradle of Filth in 2013 and promoted to full-time membership in 2014. Since then she has embarked on many world tours and appears on albums “Hammer of The Witches” (2015) and “Cryptoriana: The Seductiveness of Decay” (2017) both released under Nuclear Blast Records.
Lindsay has received her musical training from vocal instructors, the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto), and at York University in 2012 where she had to cut her studies short in order to join Cradle of Filth. She continues to study abroad in the fields of business, musical theory, and harp playing. Occasionally she coaches select vocal students, but composing for her projects and making guest appearances remain a top priority.
In addition, Lindsay is also a co-founder in the classical meets black metal ensemble Antiqva. Alongside co-creator and guttural vocalist Xenoyr (Ne Obliviscaris) they are joined by a powerhouse of established heavy metal musicians. They are currently composing their debut release when schedules align. http://www.facebook.com/antiqvaofficial
Lindsay’s stage persona caught the attention of Belzebubs’ creator JP Ahonen in 2018. Inspired, he modeled the character Skvllcraft after her.

Lindsay contributed her vocals as said character on their album “Pantheon of The Nightside Gods” (2019, Century Media Records). Skvllcraft in seen in the animated music video for “Cathedrals of Mourning” and makes multiple appearances in the comic strip series.
