She is a dancing violinist extraordinaire, and now an author!
Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, will publish Lindsey Stirling's memoir, The Only Pirate at the Party in January, 2016.
Why are we going to read it? Here's three reasons!
• The electronic violinist has brought to the global stage electrifying and genre-defying performances. We are so interested in her backstory!
• The memoir was co-written with Lindsey's sister, Brooke S. Passey. So it is a real insider's insight. As a child, Lindsey's family struggled to make ends meet and as a young adult in the music industry, she faced rejection after rejection all the while battling inner demons—most prominently, anorexia. And after a devastating loss on , where Sharon Osbourne told her she couldn't fill a theatre in Vegas, Lindsey had to carve out her own path. Resilience and tenacity along with creative ingenuity has led her to enchant over 6.7 million YouTube subscribers. She has over 1 billion views on YouTube, and recently took home a Billboard Music Award for "Top Dance/Electronic Album."
• Stirling is a true inspiration to musicians and fans alike and this is where Lindsey shares her story, her personal testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it's okay to be the sole pirate at the party.
'The Only Pirate at the Party' by Lindsey Stirling and Brooke S. Passey is published January 12, 2016.
