It's a new dawn, it's a new day and she should be feeling good because violinist Linsey Stirling has proved that you can make it in the music biz on your own terms, without some all controlling record label calling the shots.
Combining her violin skills, modern attributes of pop music and her love of generic cinema and dance, Linsey Stirling has created a unique and winning formula for success and has done so, on her own terms. Many musicians have a complete vision about their work and equally their styling, but very often they have to fight for their own personal artistic direction to be accepted and approved by the corporate machine that dictates everything. Sometimes a personal vision can only be green lighted when the artist is big enough in the music world to call the shots...and even then. Without the resources of a record label, which by the way - all declined to signing her back in 2007, Linsey has been an independent artist in the truest sense of the word - doing it all without any industry backing. With no middle men to take their cut, all her monies from touring, sponsorship, direct sales and youtube revenue go to her and her crew and Forbes have recently sighted her as bringing in $6million for the year 2015. Good One Linsey!
