A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, Arizona, Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. She 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. Her self-titled debut album includes the viral smash “Crystalize,” 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.
Her 2015 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 United States alone. The album includes a collaboration with Halestorm lead singer, Lzzy Hale, on her smash single “Shatter Me,” which has over 54 million views of 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 third album, “Brave Enough,” is set to be released via her own label, Lindseystomp Records. Recorded in Los Angeles, the highly-anticipated album will feature a number of high profile collaborations, including Christina Perri, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, ZZ Ward, Rivers Cuomo, Grammy® Award-winning hip-hop artists Lecrae, Dan + Shay and critically acclaimed musician Robert DeLong, who produced the album track “Prism.” Blending electronic music with a diverse number of musical genres that include pop, alternative, rock, country and rap, “Brave Enough” displays Stirling’s impressive ability to push her own musical boundaries while continuing to embrace her own unique signature sound.
“I wrote this album while I was searching for the courage to be vulnerable,” said Stilring. “I wanted to tear down the walls I’d built around my heart and each song represents a step of my journey.”
A brand new music video for the album track “The Arena” was released in late June via Lindsey’s YouTube channel and has gained an impressive 4 million views.
Her critically praised 2015 U.S. 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, Brooke S. Passey, the book debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list. Additionally, Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique, and then wait for the world to catch-up.
