When we first saw violinist Lindsey Stirling perform, we almost had to have our jaws realigned! This superstar is anything but your everyday classical violinist. Lindsey’s electronica and dub step-infused violin playing (yeah… seriously) has resulted in multiple chart-topping hits, two highly successful albums, sold-out tours worldwide and millions of YouTube views! Oh, and did we mention she was actually voted off of America’s Got Talent in the beginning? We caught up with Lindsey recently and she shared just how alike we all really are in our paths to success, as well as what it is that keeps her moving along her road to the top.
