The Only Pirate at the Party by Lindsey Stirling

Book Review

The Only Pirate at the Party is the inspiring story of Lindsey Stirling. While some of her hurdles in the music industry are well known, she’ll also reveal internal struggles she’s overcome in her journey to success. Readers will watch as she transforms throughout the book, forging her path in the music industry. She’s not your average performer. The sincerity and humor she brings to this memoir are heartwarming.

Lindsey Stirling’s music is just as unique as her personality. Readers will have a chance to see her journey through childhood and the family driven relationships that helped cement her values. She is a genuine down to earth person and reading about how deeply she cares for those close to her is enlightening. If you are part of her tour crew, you are treated like family. And there are plenty of stories within this memoir that will make you laugh at the antics on tour.

But along the way, there will also be the occasional people who spark insecurity and doubt in her mind. And there will also be some surprising reveals about fellow performers who look down on Lindsey Stirling. Some even put her into challenging situations that made her question her worth as a musician. It angered me how petty certain individuals could be. Music is such a unique experience to listeners and there is such a wide variety available. It doesn’t matter what genre of music is played, not everyone has to play a certain way. Music allows people to embrace their creativity and be who they are through their songs.

If you enjoy memoirs or are a fan of Lindsey Stirling’s music, grab a copy of this book. This is a quick and entertaining read, filled with memorable moments. And if you have the chance, grab the audiobook version of The Only Pirate at the Party. Lindsey Stirling herself narrates and brings an added depth of emotion to each chapter.

All or part of this book review may be used in marketing, I only ask that you reference Behind the Pages if you choose to do so.
