Biography

Santa Ana, California, United States

Lindsey Stirling (born in September, 21, 1986 in Santa Ana, California, United States) is a violinist, dancer and composer based in Utah. A former member of the rock band Stomp on Melvin, Stirling began releasing videos on Youtube in 2007 and in 2010 competed on “America’s Got Talent”. Her appearance on “America’s Got Talent” gained the attention of cinematographer Devin Graham, with whom she has collaborated on several videos since 2010. Her YouTube channel has become extremely popular and has received upwards of 100 million views.

Stirling was born in Santa Ana, California, but spent a portion of her childhood in Gilbert, Arizona and graduated from Mesquite High School. She moved to Provo, Utah to attend Brigham Young University to study recreational therapy. She went on to perform missionary work in New York City for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Stirling returned home to Provo in 2009 to continue studying at BYU. She resided there until December 2012, when she moved back to Arizona with her family. Currently she lives in Los Angeles, California.

At the age of five, after being influenced by the classical music records played by her father, Stirling began to study the violin. She took private lessons for twelve years. When she was sixteen, she joined a rock band in Mesquite High School with four friends called “Stomp on Melvin”. As part of her experience with Stomp on Melvin, Stirling wrote a solo violin rock song, and her performance helped her to win the state title of Arizona’s Junior Miss and claim the Spirit Award in the America’s Junior Miss Finals competition. Stirling was also a member of Charley Jenkins Band for about a year.

    The new album is good, but I miss the videos, which for me were a substantial part of her performance and appeal.

    Listening to the new album and thus far in my opinion it's easily more creative and "experimental" (in quotations because it's not really experimental) than the debut. I liked the debut but aside from the violin of course, the music was very simple electronic tbh. A lot of the background dubstep/electronic music was very simplistic. This time around it's much more jarring and integrated with Lindsey's playing. Hence the different "feel" people are talking about. Aside from the title track which was very simple (even more so than the debut) which is definitely the worst song I've heard off the new album thus far, so far this is definitely a step up from the debut.
