Istanbul, April 21 () - Popular U.S. violin virtuoso Lindsey Stirling will perform in Istanbul for the first time in July. She has entered a futuristic world of big electronic beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over half a billion views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold-out tours worldwide.
Her self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks, including the viral smash hit “Crystallize” which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views.
In 2014, she released her new album “Shatter Me” which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. The album has sold over 350,000 copies in the U.S. without the backing of a major label, and has gone platinum in Germany and gold in Poland and Switzerland.
Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She is famed for taking “requests” and has recorded unique versions of the themes from “Phantom Of The Opera” and “Game Of Thrones,” the computer games “Zelda” “Pokemon” and “Skyrim” as well as pop songs by Michael Jackson and Rihanna.
She uploads them all to Lindseystomp, a secondary YouTube channel packed with music videos and short comedy films, many featuring her alter-ego - a superfan named Phelba.
She will take the stage at Zorlu Center PSM on July 14.
