Virtuoso electric violinists Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee launch their exclusive Swarovski crystal violins woth over £1,000,000 each to the media in-store at the world famous Harrods
The sparkling violins are a one-off pair created by Swarovski for Linzi and her band mate Ben Lee who make up the rock inspired electric violin act FUSE. Each bespoke Bridge electric violin, created to celebrate their groundbreaking album, is encrusted with 50,000 Swarovski crystals, every crystal individually hand applied and has a £1million price tag.
Hotly-tipped rock electric violin duo FUSE debuted their brand new, million-pound Swarovski-encrusted violins at an exclusive photo-call held on the iconic Egyptian Escalator at Harrods to the media.
Following in the footsteps of international superstars Madonna, Michael Jackson and Kylie Minogue, FUSE’s Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee joined forces with Swarovski to embellish each of their bespoke Bridge instruments creating the world’s most expensive electric violins ever made.
Linzi Stoppard of FUSE said, “These violins are incredible, just stunning – the light explodes off the Swarovski crystals. We love the fact that whilst they have become pieces of art, we can still play the songs from our new album ‘FUSE’ on them.
David Miller, Director of Harrods Home commented “We are delighted to welcome FUSE to our world-famous store to celebrate the launch of their debut album.” He went on to say “Harrods is renowned for enhancing its customers’ shopping experience’ and added ‘On this occasion, our customers will have the chance to catch a glimpse of these extraordinary masterpieces which will be exhibited on the fifth floor of the iconic Egyptian Escalators.”
What FUSE do can have a truly global appeal; there are no language barriers. Whilst they are very proudly a string band, listeners can sing along to the choruses that we all know. With the release of "FUSE", the duo will be bringing their unique brand of entertainment to a whole new audience, let's hope they are ready!
Linzi and Ben's background is music all the way – though Linzi is also signed to Models 1 and she and Ben have both just become Prince's Trust Ambassadors. With both having had real success individually in their careers thus far and worked with an amazing array of world-beating musical talent, their coming together as FUSE portends something really special.
