About Lindsey Stirling
Born 1986 in Santa Ana California, Lindsey Stirling would
spend her childhood in California and Arizona before moving to Utah to attend Brigham Young University. She would eventually
move to New York as a missionary for the Mormon church in 2009, shortly before bursting onto the worldwide stage in 2010.
musical talents would be developed from a young age, studying violin from the age of five. She would take lessons for more
than ten years throughout her childhood, influenced heavily by her father who had a taste for classical music. She would perform
in a small group titled Stomp on Melvin throughout high school, which would be her first step on the path to becoming a major
performing and recording artist. She would win Arizona's Junior Miss competition, aided and abetted by her musical prowess
as she wrote and performed a solo violin rock song for the judges.
Lindsey would make a strong showing on the reality
TV series America's Got Talent. She would portray herself as a hip hop violinist, mixing elements from classical with other
contemporary genres such as electronica and rock. She would advance to the quarter finals before being voted off the show
with scathingly mean admonishments from judges Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne, including that she would not be able to fill
venues as a solo act. Stirling would be upset with the results, but her spirits would not be dampened as she continued to
pioneer her signature style, eventually teaming up with cinematographer Devin Graham and putting out a series of music videos
for her songs.
Lindsey would gain traction on YouTube, and would eventually spread to other online mediums such as Pandora,
Spotify, and Last.FM. Her musical style would expand to include the increasingly popular dubstep genre, while still retaining
her roots in hip hop and classical. She would collaborate with some of the largest artists all across the music industry including
The Decembrists, LMFAO, Peter Hollens, John Legend, and Pentatonix. Her momentum would continue to gain as she signed a deal
with Lady Gaga manager Troy Carter and set out on a sold out North American tour, to be followed by the first worldwide tour
of her career.
Lindsey Stirling would release a series of YouTube singles at the start of
her career, years before embarking on the difficult task of recording and releasing an actual full length album. She started
with her debut video "Spontaneous ME" in 2011, with her channel eventually garnering over 500 million views and 4 million
subscribers. Another hit single, "Crystallize" would be the eighth most viewed video of 2012, punching in at 42 million views
for the year.
2013 would be a great year for Lindsey as she signed with legendary managing house Atom Factory and her
self titled 2012 album would be certified gold, being the second best selling artist on the classical crossover charts. She
would also gain widespread acclaim with the single "Radioactive", winning a YouTube Music Award.
Lindsey's second album
would be released 2014, titled Shatter Me. It would be carried by the single "Beyond the Veil" and would peak at #1 on iTunes,
further cementing Lindsey's position as a unique and surging figure in the classical crossover genre.
