Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 720 million views of her videos on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.
Originally issued in 2012, Lindsey's eponymous debut studio effort features twelve original tracks including the viral smash "Crystallize," which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views.

It also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart and the Billboard Classical Album Chart and peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard Top 200.
