Prepare for some pre-holiday motivational mantras…

Lindsey Stirling is the definition of a one-woman powerhouse. With over 10 million YouTube subscribers and over 1.7 billion views on her channel, Lindsey defines ‘influencer’ so much so that Forbes magazine ranked the 31 year-old at number four on their inaugural ‘YouTube Millionaires’ list. Most importantly she is YouTube’s highest female earner. Go girl!

Lindsey’s YouTube channel aims to bring back classical music to the contemporary social media age with emphatic violin performances being posted alongside personal testimonies. If YouTube domination wasn’t enough for the performer her autobiographical memoir became a New York Times bestseller with a very moving account about her battle with anorexia.

We caught up with Lindsey fresh from her run to the finals of Dancing with The Stars and mid USA tour, because Miss Stirling doesn’t do anything by halves…

YouTube gives YOU the power to be your own boss…

“For me YouTube is about making things happen I want to happen. When I was trying to break through as a performer I was going to all these talent agencies and talent scouts and I couldn’t get anyone to listen to what I wanted to do. So I turned to YouTube to make it happen for myself. It’s an amazing platform where you can create your own destiny. We are part of a generation who can create their own content and control our own path and that is something to be celebrated!”

I am a feminist because we as women have something unique to share…

“Feminism in the past has had a really bad reputation. We are not trying to be better than men we are just trying to say, ‘hey look, as women we have this unique perspective and we have something to bring to the table.’ We are not better than men, we are equal. The age we are living in is so cool as we are rising up and standing up for what is right and we have more to offer if men and women work together. I think women have something so special and unique to share.”

Everyone has the ability to be a role model…

“I feel that everyone is a role model – whether you have a sister or a friend for instance – everyone has that opportunity to be of influence to others. I have a crazy career where people listen to what I say and when I get up on stage I want to create art I care about and create things people are inspired by. If you have millions of people watching of course there is a certain pressure but no one should take the idea lightly that we all have the power to influence those around us.”

My holiday album is a one stop Christmas shop…

“You’ve got big band, orchestral elements, singing and more – it’s fabulous holiday album as it gives you all the Christmas feelings in one place.” SOLD!

How to throw the most EXTRA Christmas possible…

“First of all get all your friends and family around. Secondly eat as much food as possible and let your diet go, Finally, make your own traditions – that what makes Christmas for me – traditions you can return to every year. My family do matching Christmas pyjamas on Christmas Eve and we are big into board games in my house too – I am so competitive!”

Lindsey’s album Warmer In The Winter’ is out now
