Shatter me [sound recording]by Stirling, Lindsey

Shatter Me

Shatter Me

Have you ever wanted to listen to music and don’t know what to pick? Well, let me tell you about Lindsey Stirling’s latest CD, Shatter Me!, It is filled with upbeat music that gears your appreciation of the ability that Stirling has with the violin. I invite you take a journey with Stirling as she takes you through beats and melodies that intertwine to create her one of a kind dubstep songs. Join the rollercoaster of sound that takes you from smooth classical sounding pieces to more dramatic high pitched “JAM TO THIS” numbers that just make you want to jump up and rock it! I leave you in good hands with Lindsey Stirling in hopes that you too become a fanatic of her rhythms and style.

PS – By far my favorite is track 6 “Roundtable Rival”
