Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 675 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.
Lindsey’s self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks; including the viral smash "Crystallize," which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views. The album has sold over 350,000 copies in the US without the backing of a major label, and has gone platinum in Germany and gold in Poland and Switzerland. The album reached number one on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart and the Billboard Classical Album Chart and also peaked at #22 on the Billboard Top 200.
For as long as she remembers, music has played a huge role in her home. Every week her dad would play his favorite classical records which would magically transpire to me. It was then, at the age of 5, she begged her parents to let her play the violin.
After a year her mother enrolled her in a class and Lindsey never looked back. Her parents saved up every cent they had to watch her talent grow. And, she has promised and gives them all she can for their sacrifice.
Lindsey Stirling's violin has continued to bring color and adventure into every phase of her life. She brought it to NYC as she served and began to love the people she met and performed for. It's the reason why she plays, for the happiness of anyone who stumbles on her music.
