Steampunk Hands Around the World 2016 – My Favorite Things: Lindsey Stirling Music Videos

Welcome to my third contribution to Steampunk Hands Around the World 2016 – My Favorite Things! If you’re not familiar, Steampunk Hands is a month-long blogathon in February when steampunks from all over the world come together to talk about the genre. This year’s theme is My Favorite Things. CLICK HERE for the master list of all the blog posts!

For my third Favorite Thing, I’d like to talk about Lindsey Stirling, specifically her music videos. If you haven’t heard of her, you probably don’t spend a lot of time on YouTube. Lindsey Stirling became a sensation a few years ago, appearing on America’s Got Talent. She didn’t win, but her YouTube videos went viral. Why? Because she composes and plays original music on violin, as well as doing covers or medleys, and she dances (quite well!) while playing said violin. It’s very impressive, and if you ever get the chance to see her live, I highly recommend it!

Here are a couple of her videos that are particularly Steampunk-y. The first, “Shatter Me” is especially powerful, as it’s about Lindsey’s struggle with self-acceptance and self-love. The second, “Roundtable Rival”, is simply badass 😉

  1. Roundtable Rival is my favourite song by Lindsey. I have her albums on repeat in the car, and my daughter (8 months at the moment) loves her music too!
