Lindsey Stirling releases memoir!
You may know her from America’s Got Talent (where she was rejected in the quarter finals) or you may know her from her amazing YouTube covers and collaborations (like her cover of Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive with Pentatonix), or you may just know her because she’s so different from most musicians in the spotlight today. She’s a popular pop/EDM violinist.
Now you might also know her as a writer, as her new memoir The Only Pirate at the Party has just been released. In the book the classically trained violinist discusses her success, and the failures along the way that lead her to where she is today (7.5 million followers on YouTube, over a billion views, and two original full-length albums, among other things.) She also discusses personal struggles that have affected her throughout her rise.
In case you haven’t heard of Stirling before, here’s a little sample of what she does.
