Lindsey Stirling Biography

Lindsey Stirling (born on September 21, 1986) is an American violinist, musician, dancer, performance artist, and composer. In 2010 she competed on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent. Stirling is noted for her versatility performing music from country to hip hop.

At the age of 23 Stirling was a quarter-finalist on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent where she was known as the ‘Hip Hop Violinist’. After Stirling’s performance, Sharon Osbourne said, “Wow… we love you Lindsey!” and Piers Morgan called her performance “Electrifying!”.

At the age of 5, after being influenced by the classic music records played by her father, Stirling requested the opportunity to learn and play the violin.

Stirling was classically trained through private lessons for 12 years. When she was 16, she joined a rock band with four friends called Stomp on Melvin. As part of her experience with Stomp on Melvin, Stirling wrote a solo violin rock song, and her performance helped her to win both the title of Arizona’s Jr. Miss in 2005 and the talent category of the National Jr. Miss Pageant. As of May 2, 2012, Stirling is 5’3″ tall.

Stirling attended BYU, where she met cinematographer Devin Graham in a film class. The two began a relationship and frequently collaborate on videos.
