LINDSEY STIRLING’S SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM HITS #1 (ELECTRONIC), TOP 15 MOST-DOWNLOADED ON iTUNES!

YouTube Sensation’s Channel Surpasses 137 Million Views, US Tour Selling Out – National Media Appearances Include “CBS This Morning,” “Extra,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “The Insider,” “FOX News!”


During the week of September 18th, Lindsey Stirling’s self-titled album release shot to #1 worldwide on the iTunes Electronic chart and debuted at #14 on the iTunes most downloaded list. It also debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Indie album chart. She still currently has the #1 album as well as three singles – “Elements,” “Crystallize,” and “Moon Trance” – in the Top 10 in iTunes Electronic chart.


The hot album debut is no surprise, considering that Lindsey had previously sold over 300,000 individual songs mostly by word-of-mouth, several of which hit the iTunes Top 100 as well as the top of the digital electronic charts.

Currently on a US tour supporting Lindsey Stirling, most venues are sold-out, including her performance at NYC’s famed Webster Hall and her stops in major markets like Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia and DC, with all VIP ticketing and meet ‘n’ greet packages bought out in days. In LA, a second show at the Roxy was added, and in her Arizona hometown a bigger venue was needed to accommodate high ticket demand!

Comprised of 12 original tracks, Lindsey Stirling showcases the YouTube sensation’s – over 137 million views and counting – signature violin-electronic-dubstep style. Several tracks were co-produced by some of music’s hottest talents, including the Grammy-nominated DJ Poet (The Black-Eyed Peas). Lindsey’s album is not only a big hit with fans around the world, but also with the national press: she’s appeared on “CBS This Morning,” “Extra,” “Entertainment Tonight,” FOX News Channel and “The Insider,” and will be seen on “Larry King Now” and KABC’s nationally syndicated “On the Red Carpet” among other outlets in the coming months.

Lindsey composes, choreographs, and directs all of her own original music and videos, merging unique violin stylings and electronic dub-step beats with animated contemporary dance. Her wide array of videos are all available on her Lindseystomp YouTube channel, which has more than 833,000+ subscribers.

Between her YouTube Channel, social media outlets, and strong word-of-mouth buzz, Lindsey – a classically-trained violinist – has gained legions of fans worldwide, especially amongst gamers with her unique compositions from “The Legend of Zelda” and “Skyrim.” She appeared as a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” performed more recently at video game convention E3, and has played globally in such places as London, Italy, and Kenya. Lindsey’s first headlining performance at historic Webster Hall in New York City sold out in a matter of days.

LINDSEY STIRLING
www.lindseystirlingviolin.com

YouTube sensation Lindsey Stirling is perhaps the first – and only – artist in the world to blend classical violin, modern dance, and…The Legend of Zelda?!

On September 18th, Lindsey will be releasing her self-titled debut album, Lindsey Stirling, coming off the heels of an incredibly successful presence on iTunes. Comprised of 10 original tracks, the album will showcase Lindsey’s signature violin-electronic-dubstep style – opening with “Crystallize,” her most popular piece. Lindsey has already sold over 300,000 songs, several of which have hit the iTunes Top 100 as well as the top of the digital electronic charts. Lindsey also has plans for a follow-up album of covers, putting her unique twist on everything from existing video game themes to pop music.

“My musical style is a reflection of my personality,” Lindsey shares, “and through it I hope to share my belief that no one should be afraid to be themselves.” She adds “All my songs were created to depict specific themes that I pulled from my own life experiences. ‘Spontaneous Me’ is about having the courage to love yourself for who you are.”

“‘Crystallize,’ on the other hand, is a much deeper song: the crystallization of water is affected by its surroundings to create either beautiful patterns or meaningless masses. Similarly, I believe that through our thoughts, beliefs and the environments we create, we each possess the power to make a positive change within ourselves and others.”

Adds Lindsey, “’Transcendence’ was one of the first songs I ever wrote and it to depict my own triumph over some significant trials I have faced. I feel that the lack of lyric-driven content makes my music powerful. I have put my own personal experiences into each track, but it’s for the listener to decide what the music means to them.”

Lindsey composes, choreographs, and directs all of her original music and videos -- merging unique violin stylings and electronic dub-step beats with animated contemporary dance. Her wide array of videos are all available on her Lindseystomp YouTube channel, which rings in at more than 640,000 subscribers -- and has tallied over 102 million hits. (Viewership is enthusiastic: the ice-themed “Crystallize” at 22 million; her snow-scaped “Skyrim” at 8.6 million; and the silhouette-performing “Shadows” at 7.5 million.)

Between her YouTube Channel, social media outlets, and strong word-of-mouth buzz, Lindsey has gained legions of fans worldwide. She appeared as a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” performed more recently at video game convention E3, and has played globally in such places as London, Italy, and Kenya. Lindsey’s first headlining performance at historic Webster Hall in New York City sold out in a matter of days. With her unique classical takes on such video franchise themes as “The Legend of Zelda” and “Skyrim”, Lindsey has also endeared herself to masses of gamers, who are among her most avid fans. She now looks forward to her upcoming 2012 US tour this fall which will bring her talents to 24 of the largest entertainment centers of the country – from Los Angeles and San Francisco, to Chicago, New York and Washington D.C.


A classically-trained violinist, Lindsey’s love for music began with free community concerts and the sounds of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mozart played daily in her home on an old record player. At age five she begged her parents for violin lessons. After a year of her incessant pleading, Lindsey’s mom found a teacher she could afford who would give her daughter 15-minute lessons every other week. She hoped that young Lindsey – now six – wouldn’t grow bored. She never did, and has played ever since.

Young Lindsey’s passion for the violin was matched only by her love of dancing. Having to choose violin rather than dance lessons, Lindsey decided to train for the latter in a more unconventional way: YouTube videos. She studied footwork, practiced moves and techniques, and even taught herself to Moonwalk, becoming the world’s first unofficial YouTube-trained dancer.

After moving from Santa Ana, CA to Gilbert, AZ at age eight, Lindsey continued to practice violin and dance – in unique ways. At age 16 she joined a pop-punk rock band called Stomp on Melvin to experiment with different styles of music. As a graduating senior, to earn money for college, she entered the “America’s Junior Miss Pageant” (now named “Distinguished Young Women”), the nation’s largest and oldest scholarship program for high school girls. In a competition filled with evening gowns and elegant poses, Lindsey performed violin rock songs with spiky hair, high socks, and a style all her own. When the cheering was over, Lindsey had won the Gilbert and Arizona pageants and the talent portion of the city, state and national competitions-- instantly becoming an outside-the-box role model for young girls with her message of non-conformity in art and music.

In 2007, Lindsey decided that she wanted to be a guest on “Ellen,” the hit daytime talk show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. To get the attention of the show’s producers, she wrote violin parts to the Black-eyed Peas, incorporated dance, and recorded her first video for YouTube. The video didn’t result in a guest appearance -- but did go viral online, garnering hundreds of thousands of views and a huge following of fans around the world. Soon, “America’s Got Talent” came calling, followed by an incredible You Tube career, and live performances spanning the globe – all a testament to Lindsey Stirling’s dazzling blend of violin, dance, and sprite-like personality. “But,” she explains, “my goal is still to get on ‘Ellen!”
