STIRLING’S SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM HITS #1 (ELECTRONIC), TOP 15 MOST-DOWNLOADED ON !
During the week of September 18th, Lindsey Stirling’s self-titled album release shot to #1 worldwide on the iTunes Electronic chart and debuted at #14 on the iTunes most downloaded list. It also debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Indie album chart. She still currently has the #1 album as well as three singles – “Elements,” “Crystallize,” and “Moon Trance” – in the Top 10 in iTunes Electronic chart.
The hot album debut is no surprise, considering that Lindsey had previously sold over 300,000 individual songs mostly by word-of-mouth, several of which hit the iTunes Top 100 as well as the top of the digital electronic charts.
Currently on a US tour supporting Lindsey Stirling, most venues are sold-out, including her performance at NYC’s famed Webster Hall and her stops in major markets like Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia and DC, with all VIP ticketing and meet ‘n’ greet packages bought out in days. In LA, a second show at the Roxy was added, and in her Arizona hometown a bigger venue was needed to accommodate high ticket demand!
Comprised of 12 original tracks, Lindsey Stirling showcases the YouTube sensation’s – over 137 million views and counting – signature violin-electronic-dubstep style. Several tracks were co-produced by some of music’s hottest talents, including the Grammy-nominated DJ Poet (The Black-Eyed Peas). Lindsey’s album is not only a big hit with fans around the world, but also with the national press: she’s appeared on “CBS This Morning,” “Extra,” “Entertainment Tonight,” FOX News Channel and “The Insider,” and will be seen on “Larry King Now” and KABC’s nationally syndicated “On the Red Carpet” among other outlets in the coming months.
Lindsey composes, choreographs, and directs all of her own original music and videos, merging unique violin stylings and electronic dub-step beats with animated contemporary dance. Her wide array of videos are all available on her Lindseystomp YouTube channel, which has more than 833,000+ subscribers.
Between her YouTube Channel, social media outlets, and strong word-of-mouth buzz, Lindsey – a classically-trained violinist – has gained legions of fans worldwide, especially amongst gamers with her unique compositions from “The Legend of Zelda” and “Skyrim.” She appeared as a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” performed more recently at video game convention E3, and has played globally in such places as London, Italy, and Kenya. Lindsey’s first headlining performance at historic Webster Hall in New York City sold out in a matter of days.
