Lindsey Stirling’s audience is her label, she says. These folks are also her designers, her programmers, the extras in her videos, and the fans (of course) that helped the pop classical violinist reinvent herself after she was kicked off “America’s Got Talent.”
After her disappointing showing on national TV, Stirling decided to take her music to another format: video. She kept playing her pop classical violin music, but decided to add dance to the mix, learning how to Moonwalk and glide on YouTube. And then, according to Hypebot, she began creating her own music videos, and the rest…well, you know:
“Then as soon as we put this video together, my music started to sell and people started to say how much they love it, or that they enjoyed my performing. I thought, there’s something to this whole YouTube thing. So I decided to start pursuing my own channel, and this is where it’s led me.”
Stirling’s videos have been viewed more than 148,000,000 times on YouTube.
