Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen-Cabuli (born 17 August 1977), known professionally as Tarja Turunen or simply Tarja, is a Finnish heavy metal singer-songwriter.
She is a professional classical lied singer, and the former lead vocalist of the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, which she founded with Tuomas Holopainen and Emppu Vuorinen in 1996. Their combination of hard and fast guitar riffs with Turunen's dramatic, "operatic" lead vocals quickly achieved critical and commercial popularity. Their symphonic metal style, soon dubbed "opera metal", inspired many other metal bands and performers.
Turunen was dismissed from the band on October 21, 2005 (just after the performance of the band's End of an Era concert) for personal reasons. She started her solo career in 2006 with the release of a Christmas album called Henkäys ikuisuudesta. In 2007, Turunen released My Winter Storm, an album featuring various styles including symphonic metal, and started the Storm World Tour. Turunen released her third album, What Lies Beneath, in 2010. Her first live DVD Act I was filmed during this tour on 30 and 31 March 2012 in Rosario, Argentina. Act I was released in August 2012. Turunen started the Colours in the Dark World Tour in October 2013 to promote her new album Colours in the Dark. Her second live DVD was filmed during the events of Beauty and the Beat and was released in May.
In September 2015, Tarja Turunen released her first classical studio album, Ave Maria – En Plein Air. Her latest album was released in August 2016 The Shadow Self with a prequel EP The Brightest Void released on June 3.
This is what Tarja had to say about Evanescence:
Tarja opened for Evanescence in Slovakia on September 7, 2019. This is what she said about their meeting:
|Beautiful. It was really nice to meet with Amy - finally! You know it was the first time, the only time I've really met this beautiful soul. And yeah, we had a very short chat only because we were both very busy that day. I met her with her family there, we chit-chatted and talked about life. And I saw her during my show there rocking, I was also there during their show. Yeah, very nice to meet, absolutely, and I would love to meet her once again. Very soon, I really hope to see her. I wish her all the best. She's a sweetheart.|
