Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. Since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist has quietly and humbly become one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic, violin-driven electronic music.
After bowing at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, holding No. 1 on the Classical Albums chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album, her sophomore opus “Shatter Me” would not only garner an RIAA gold certification, but it would rank as the No. 2 Dance/Electronic Album and No. 1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts.
Attracting over 10 million subscribers and two billion-plus views on YouTube, in 2015 Forbes placed Stirling at No. 4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headlining tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut “The Only Pirate at the Party” – co-written with her sister, Brook S. Passey – became a New York Times Bestseller.
Stirling’s third-studio album, “Brave Enough,” debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, went on to score the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Albums list, and earned a 2017 Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album.
Last year, Stirling released her first-ever holiday album titled “Warmer in the Winter.” Featuring classic and original songs, it went on to become the No. 1 new Christmas album of 2017, ahead of pop music heavyweights such as Gwen Stefani and Sia.
It was also the bestselling new holiday album and the best-performing holiday album on Pandora with more than 40 million spins. Stirling is re-releasing her top-selling Christmas album this year with a few new songs as well as some Christmas classics.
She was also the runner-up on Season 25 of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” with her partner Mark Ballas and is currently wrapping up a national tour with Evanescence accompanied by a full orchestra.
