There is no-one else like Lindsey Stirling. We are talking about a classically-trained violinist, from Gilbert, Arizona, entering a futuristic world of big beats and animation - imagine Vanessa Mae leaping through the pages of a Manga comic with Skrillex in hot pursuit. Her song 'Crystallize' was the eighth most-viewed video on Youtube last year, racking up an incredible 78 million views and over 3.6 million subscribers. With her first ticketed show just twelve months ago, she's now selling out dates across Europe, America, Russia and Asia. Her debut album has sold 200,000 copies in the US without the backing of a major label, and has gone Gold in Germany (over 100k sold) and Switzerland.
It is hard to believe that Piers Morgan told Lindsey Stirling the world had no place for a dancing dub-step violinist. But being voted off 2010's America's Got Talent, at the quarter-finals, turned out to be the best thing that's ever happened to her. Rejection simply strengthened Stirling's resolve to be herself. "The same reasons I was told I wouldn't succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now," she laughs. "Because it's different. Because it's something you haven't seen before..."
Stirling's debut album features twelve original tracks including viral smashes 'Crystallize', 'Shadows' and 'Electric Daisy Violin'. She has created a new musical world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica. In 'Elements' you'll hear rhythm programming and "wub-wub" bass recalling dubstep giants Skream or Benga, while 'Zi-Zi's Journey' and 'Spontaneous Me' feature all the thrilling, arpeggio build-ups of trance. On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, "dropping the beat" like some strange, electro-pastoral rave fairy
