Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, Ariz., Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 8 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.4 billion views on her YouTube channel, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.  Lindsey’s self-titled debut album includes the viral smash “Crystallize,” which has racked up over 150 million YouTube views.  The album reached #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Chart and Classical Album Chart, earned her a 2014 Billboard Music Award nomination for “Top Dance/Electronic Album,” and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA.  Lindsey’s 2014 sophomore album Shatter Me, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and has sold over 332,000 copies to date in the US alone.  The album includes a collaboration with Halestorm lead singer Lzzy Hale on her smash single “Shatter Me,” which has over 54 million views on YouTube.  The album took home the 2015 Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album” of which Avicii, Disclosure, Calvin Harris and Skrillex were also nominated.   Her critically praised 2015 US summer tour included headline shows at venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, which she sold out, New York’s Central Park Summerstage and the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.  To date, Lindsey’s tours have sold over 500,000 headline tickets worldwide.  Lindsey also ranked #4 on Forbes Magazine’s inaugural “YouTube Millionaires” list in November 2015, on which she is the highest paid female.  In January 2016, Lindsey released her first book with Simon& Schuster, a memoir called “The Only Pirate at the Party.”  Co-written by her sister Brook S.
