Violinist Lindsey Stirling Rocks Out
September 19, 2012
Have you ever seen a violinist rock out? Lindsey Stirling is not your average music icon, and the accomplished 25-year-old violinist has become an Internet superstar with her energetic and visually stunning rock, trance and hip-hop music videos that feature her dancing while playing.
"I wanted to make it fun. I wanted to make it entertaining and energetic," says Lindsey about thinking outside the box with her instrument. "Playing like a statue on stage as I used to play just wasn't quite cutting it."
"I learned to moonwalk through the Internet -- an unofficial YouTube trained dancer," she laughs.
While her music has no lyrics, the devout Mormon (who studied therapeutic recreation at Brigham Young University) says it speaks volumes: "This represents a huge part of my beliefs, my life, my stories -- but it can represent whatever you want it to represent as you listen to it because it's up for interpretation."
