Rocking violin chick Lindsey Stirling tore up the What’s Trending studio with her live performance of original song, “Electric Daisy Violin.” Lindsey also took the time to answer fans’ questions and promote the September 18 release of her self-titled debut CD and upcoming 20+ city tour this Fall.
Having originally impressed the nation as a quarter-finalist on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, this musical Utah resident proceeded to take YouTube by storm with imaginative music videos, covers, and performances like dubstep violin track, “Crystallize,” “Starships” with Megan Nicole, Zelda Medley, and “Game of Thrones” theme with Peter Hollens.
In her fan chat below, Lindsey reveals that she first started playing violin when she was six years old and practiced for a half hour to an hour a day while she was in school. “And now I feel like I play constantly,” she says.
While she was known for her hip-hop tracks on America’s Got Talent, Lindsey’s since expanded to EDM (electronic dance music), which she says feeds her soul.
Lindsey also tells us that she used to be a film major in college, “so that whole creative, film side is really rooted into my soul.” And that keen eye is evident in the gorgeous quality of her YouTube videos, which she creates along with cinematographer Devin Grahama, a.k.a. YouTuber devinsupertramp.
But when she’s not cranking out her own music, she loves traveling, good food, and dancing, the latter of which she developed using YouTube tutorials and has now become a major part of her performance style.
