Hello Everyone! It’s Monday so that must mean music! Today I have something fun for you!…I showcase  deets on classically trained violinist Lindsey Stirling, who is absolutely incredible with her futuristic sounds of electronic big beats and animation! Plus, we get a behind the scene peek at the preparation video, that shows Lindsey and her team preparing for her “Flash Mob” spontaneous performance for her newest release Master of Tides! Also check out the very cool actual music video!

Taken from  Artist Lindsey Stirling’s bio “after being told  the world had no place for a dancing dubstep violinist; and being voted off 2010’s “America’s Got Talent” at the quarterfinals…she uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.

Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 675 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.
Lindsey’s self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks; including the viral smash “Crystallize,” which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views. The album has sold over 350,000 copies in the US without the backing of a major label, and has gone platinum in Germany and gold in Poland and Switzerland. The album reached number one on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart and the Billboard Classical Album Chart and also peaked at #22 on the Billboard Top 200.
On April 29th, 2014 Lindsey released her new album Shatter Me, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, her highest charting album to date. The album features 12 new songs written by Lindsey and includes collaborations with lead singer Lzzy Hale from the Grammy winning band Halestorm and The Voice runner-up Dia Frampton of Meg & Dia. “I really dug deep and poured my heart into Shatter Me,” said Lindsey. “Everything from the artwork to the music shares a cohesive message that I hope will inspire others to push their own boundaries.”
It is hard to believe that Piers Morgan told Lindsey Stirling the world had no place for a dancing dubstep violinist. But being voted off 2010’s “America’s Got Talent” at the quarterfinals turned out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Rejection simply strengthened Stirling’s resolve to be herself. “The same reasons I was told I wouldn’t succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now,” she laughs. “Because it’s different. Because it’s something you haven’t seen before…” Since the show, Lindsey has flourished as an artist.
Raised in a Mormon community in Arizona, Lindsey studied classical music rigorously as a teenager. Lindsey’s love for the violin would not let go, and it became a comfort throughout her struggle with an eating disorder during her early adulthood. Through this passion, Lindsey has created a new music world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica.
On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat” like a rave fairy. Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She is famed for taking “requests” and has recorded unique versions of the themes from “Phantom Of The Opera” and “Game Of Thrones”, the computer games “Zelda,” “Pokemon,” and “Skyrim,” as well as pop songs by Michael Jackson and Rihanna; She uploads them all to Lindseystomp, a secondary YouTube channel packed with music videos and short comedy films, many featuring her alter-ego – a ‘superfan’ named Phelba.
A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.

IndieWritersReview’s Music Monday Spotlight! The Synthetic Dream Foundation

Happy Monday All! Today I am throwing the spotlight on The Synthetic Dream Foundation, hope you enjoy!


a fun plus 101


a fun plus 101

Harsh, experimental, and beautiful music, video, and art.

The synthetic dream foundation formed in 2005 by composer Brett Branning (Abandoned Toys and Ephemeral Mists). Though in that short time frame has gardened a pallete of sound which is comparable to the glittering of phosphorescent life on the bottom of a cold, blackened sea. From harsh, brooding, mechanical beats to dreamy, neo-classical mirages, and dark ambient masterworks which shift through and absorb cold, alien landscapes. TSDF is not limited by genre, but instead compelled by the infinite possibilities that electronic advancements bestow upon the musical and artistic forms.

Aiboforcen’s track “shadows (the synthetic dream foundation mix)” to be released on Alfa Matrix.

Soman “skin deep (the synthetic dream foundation mix)” for the label, DeathWatch Asia. V/A.

IndieWritersReview’s Review of The Donor (Part Two) by Nikki Rae

Hey Guys:) I just wanted to share my thoughts on the newest release from the very talented Paranormal Author Nikki Rae! So check the book and deets below!:)



a fun plus 102



Nikki Rae is a writer who lives in New Jersey. As an independent author, she has appeared numerously on Amazon Best Seller lists and she concentrates on making her imaginary characters as real as possible. Nikki writes mainly dark, scary, romantic tales, but she’ll try anything once. When she is not writing, reading, or thinking, you can find her spending time with animals, drawing in a quiet corner, or studying people. Closely.


a fun plus 101


When Casey joined, she never imagined she would meet a man who not only helps her pay the bills, but has been nothing but a gentleman.

As the nose bleeds make way for worse symptoms, Casey can’t help the feelings she has for Jonah, despite how he may never return them. And he’s been keeping things from her. Big things. How does he make his money, and who is that girl in the picture?
With the clock ticking, can she find the answers she’s looking for?

a fun plus 101

The Donor (Part Two) left me wanting more at the end! Jonah and Casey’s story tugged at my heart. These two lonely, broken individuals each hold the piece to the puzzle that would heal the other. I liked finding out what brought Casey to the place she was now in and I hurriedly flipped from page to page, wondering what would happen next…what would finally (hopefully) bring them together…the end completely was unexpected and now I cannot wait to read Part 3!

The novella was well written and another example of a great read from this talented author!

IndieWritersReview’s Music Monday Spotlight! The Clockwork Dolls

Hello Everyone! Today’s Monday so that means music:)  I am throwing the spotlight on The Clockwork Dolls! This very talented band’s music has been described as “electronic music mixed with heavy Victorian influences”.

Please take a look below!


a fun plus 101



Dramatis Personae

The Clockwork Dolls were formed in 2007 and released their debut album Dramatis Personae in 2009. The album was described as “electronic music mixed with heavy Victorian influences”.

Band Members:

  • Allison Curval – Composition and Keyboards
  • Helene De Fer – Vocals and Lyrics
  • Johnny Benson – Violin

When Banners Fall

The Clockwork Dolls returned in 2012 with an altered cast. Their second album, When Banners Fall, featured a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks.  When Banners Fall was heavily influenced by the music of the 1940’s and WW2, a significant departure from the neo Victorian or ‘High Steampunk’ setting of their first album which could be described as dieselpunk.

Band Members:

  • Allison Curval – Composition, production, second guitars, keyboards
  • Colette Lovelace – Lyrics, vocals
  • Trinket Bramage – Vocals
  • Christopher Bass – Guitars
  • Martin Irigoyen – Mastering
