Striling will embark on a Christmas tour next month
Platinum-selling electronic artist, violinist, and multi-talented entertainer Lindsey Stirling is excited to announce “Crystallize,” the Lindsey Stirling Signature Yamaha Violin. The exclusive design partnership combines the quality of Yamaha instruments with Stirling’s world-class musicianship and creativity, bringing her lifelong dream of creating a student violin to fruition.
The Lindsey Stirling “Crystallize” Signature Yamaha Violin was crafted with careful attention to detail and includes unique features such as a tailpiece engraved with Stirling’s hand-drawn logo and a jeweled fine tuner, which pays tribute to her original song “Crystallize,” one of Stirling’s most viewed videos on YouTube with over 250 million views. The limited edition model includes Wittner finetune pegs for easy tuning, a hand graduated spruce top with antiqued oil varnish, Thomastik Dominant strings, and a quality Brazilwood bow made with horsehair for creating impeccable sound, in addition to a suspension case equipped with an accessory compartment, a digital hygrometer, and a thermometer.
The Lindsey Stirling “Crystallize” Signature Yamaha Violin will ship in early December in time for the holidays.
“I still remember when I got my first full-size violin. I was in 6th grade and I immediately felt like I could play better, I was more motivated and I felt like I had been given my first wand; I was now a violin wizard,” shares Stirling. “That violin took me on many adventures all the way through college. As a violinist, it is so important to have a good instrument and I am so proud of this violin that I have created with Yamaha! It is a high-quality instrument, and my hope is that it will make my fans and the violinists who wield it feel confident, motivated and magical in their playing.”
In other exciting news, Stirling has also announced Intentional Beauty by Lindsey Stirling with bellapierre, her first foray into the makeup and beauty world. Stirling’s Citrine Palette is available now. The 12-color eyeshadow palette is infused with Citrine crystal, known for facilitating positive energy, creativity, intuition, and abundance, and features a variety of highly pigmented, pressed-powder eyeshadows ranging from velvety mattes and shimmery neutrals to bold metallics, all formulated with natural and cruelty-free ingredients.
“I wanted to create a makeup that is deeper than skin. When we wear positive intentions, we glow from the inside,” Stirling explains about creating the palette.
Stirling, known all over the world for her unique, futuristic violin-driven electronic music and exquisite live show, is also gearing up for the return of her annual Christmas tour. The Lindsey Stirling Christmas Program, her fourth holiday outing, will showcase Stirling’s favorite seasonal tunes as featured on her chart-topping and critically acclaimed holiday album, Warmer In The Winter, set against dazzling festive costumes, a troupe of talented dancers, lots of holiday cheer, and much more. The 22-date trek runs from November 26th through December 23rd, stopping throughout the Midwest and East Coast; see below for dates. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster, including various VIP Packages and access to Lindsey’s VIP Ugly Sweater Christmas Party.
Warmer In The Winter, Stirling’s first-ever holiday album, was initially released in 2017, with a Deluxe Edition following in 2018. The chart-topping albums feature classic and original songs, along with special guests Becky G, Sabrina Carpenter, Trombone Shorty and Alex Gaskarth (from All Time Low), and have sold nearly 400,000 copies and been streamed over 195 million times, collectively. Since she was unable to hit the road in 2020, Stirling brought the holiday cheer home to fans and families worldwide via her live-streaming special Lindsey Stirling: Home for the Holidays. The hour-long ticketed special, which she independently created, produced, and financed, blurred the lines between concert and Christmas special, drawing over 100,000 views.
The Lindsey Stirling Christmas Program follows Stirling’s massive summer headlining Artemis US Tour, which received rave reviews and concluded last month with a special virtual tour date via Moment House. The outing featured tracks off her latest chart-topping album Artemis, including “Underground,” “Sleepwalking,” “Masquerade,” “Between Twilight” and “Love Goes On and On” featuring Amy Lee, as well as this year’s standalone single “Lose You Now” and other hits from her extensive catalogue. Stemming from the instrumental-only track “Guardian” off of Artemis, Stirling’s recent emotive pop hit about loss and grief “Lose You Now” (BMG) with artist, producer, and songwriter Mako has amassed over 10 million global streams, including more than four million views on the song’s beautifully moving music video.
