Newly added artist on YTA ~ Crystal King

Crystal King is a singer, songwriter and pianist from Houston, Texas.

She started singing and dancing on stage at the age of three, but the dancing didn't lead to much as she is clumsy on her feet supposedly.

Fortunately the singing continued and at the age of nine years old she entered a competition, which saw her being the only child placed against adults and she went on to win third place. After this she decided to take singing lessons and then went on to upload covers and originals to YouTube.

Crystal has not just stuck to singing, she has also put time and effort into charity work and has done stints of acting and modelling.

New artist now featured on YTA ~ Gigi Rich

Gigi Rich is a singer and pianist from New Jersey, but now resides in New York.

She learned a lot about having a commanding stage presence after being mentored by Gwen Stefani when she appeared on season seven of NBC’s The Voice in 2014.

Gigi’s music style is influenced by iconic artists such as James Brown, Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra and Alicia Keys, but her lyrics are influenced through personal experiences.

I personally love Gigi's powerful, soulful voice and can't wait to hear lots more from her.

New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Stassi

Stassi (pronounced like sassy with a T) is from Goleta, California. Sometimes she goes by the name Marie? I'm not sure what that's about.

I couldn't actually find a proper biography for Stassi, so I have just picked up on little bits I could find. She uploads music videos because it brings her joy and has taken singing lessons, but she claims she hasn't taken enough of them. I think she sounds great the way she is though, in fact at times she reminds me of Colbie Caillat.

Stassi has some originals on Soundcloud, but they are not actually available for download on there because she is unsure about copyrighting, but if you like one of her originals, she would probably give it to you if you asked.

Stassi doesn't seem to be a regular uploader, but has plenty of content online waiting to be checked out.

Rich Cottell explains how to professionally release your music!

So, you've written a song, you've recorded the song professionally, you've made a video for the song and uploaded it to YouTube and now you want to sell your song or make it available for streaming on Google Play Music, iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and so on, but are unsure how.

Rich Cottell explains how he professionally releases his music in this walkthrough video as he uploads one of his latest songs to music distributor Ditto Music.

There are many music distributors out there, so which one you choose is down to you. How to go about the process will be pretty much the same for all of them though, so even if you choose a distributor other than Ditto, you could still find this video useful.

New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Elle Ranae

Elle Ranae is a singer from Atlanta, Georgia, who is all about Rock Music! Although mainly a vocalist, Elle can play the guitar too.

Being bullied when she was younger, which made her super depressed, Elle used music as an escape to get through the hard times.

Elle has a tattoo of a Treble Clef and a Heart Beat that she got when she turned 18, to symbolize how music saved her life.

With only eight music videos on her YouTube channel, Elle doesn't have a lot for you to check out, but what she does have is all of amazing content and quality, and certainly worth a trip to her channel to check out.

How Alice Kristiansen records her cover videos

A few weeks ago Alice Kristiansen talked about the set up that she uses to record her cover videos. She explains how and what she used when she was first starting out, to what she uses and how she does it now with her most recent videos.

Newly Featured Artist on YTA ~ Claudia Tripp

Claudia Tripp is a singer/songwriter from Perth, Australia.

Not just confined to singing and songwriting, Claudia ia also a talented guitarist and piano player.

With a steady stream of uploads to her YouTube channel for almost four years, Claudia has a lot of content for you to check out. Her first upload was an original song called Hush Hush.

Claudia's videos and voice are flawless, so I'm shocked that she doesn't get far more views on all of her videos. Her cover of Taylor Swift's Blank Space has amassed 349,124 views so far though, which is amazing. Let's hope all of her videos start following suit soon.

Christmas 2016 Playlist

With Christmas 2016 fast approaching, it is time to have the Christmas 2016 Playlist featured on the homepage for you all to enjoy.

As new videos are added to the playlist they will automatically be placed at the top of the list and will appear as the featured video, so visiting us regularly will result in a continuously updated video to click to start the videos rolling.

So far the playlist has only six videos in it, but over the next three weeks I am sure this will grow substantially.

Normally I keep the playlist restricted to Christmas uploads by artists that I have listed on YTA, but this year I will include any Christmas videos that I think are worthy of being included.

Saturday, 12 November 2016

New artist added on YTA ~ Alexia Bosch

Singer and guitarist, Alexia Bosch is from Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Normally I look for artists to feature on YTA that have lots of videos, especially new videos. Alexia just has seven videos though, spanning three years, with only one really recent one, but these few videos were enough to make me want to feature her because I love her singing. Hopefully lots more videos will follow soon.

One of Alexia's videos, Make You Feel My Love, from a year ago, features her mum on guitar.

Her SoundCloud has a song up that she hasn't put a video on YouTube for. So if you want to check out her cover of PillowTalk By Zayn Malik, then hit her SoundCloud link.

Jessica comes across as a really down to earth girl and reminds me of a young Mariah Carey to look at. On her channel is a great selection of old and new songs, all of which are beautifully covered.

Lena has only been on YouTube for just under two years, and has a relatively small amount of videos on her channel, most are from a year ago with the excepton of one recent one.

Olivia Thai became a YouTube Artist purely by accident. She posted her first video as a joke, but 7 years later, found her videos had amassed views amounting to over 21 million.

Olivia didn't belive in her faith and ability to be able to write good songs herself, and when she was accused of not being able to write, she enrolled in songwriting school.

Lying to the instructors that she didn't have any original material, because she thought that what she had written was 'garbage', Olivia would shrink into a corner and try to be invisible.

Twin Melody are Spanish twins Paula and Aitana Etxeberria.

At least one of them is a pianist, they might both be, I don't know, I can't tell them apart.

They will often break into Spanish, Portuguese or French at the end of covering a song, which is a nice touch, it's always nice to hear something sung in another language.

Despite covering lots of other artists songs, they also have an original song online called It Was Beautiful, and guess what... it is beautiful so check it out.

These girls are a lot of fun and infectious to watch so be prepared to be glued to their channel.

Most of Desiree's uploads are of live performances. Watching these performances shows what a great stage presence she has.

If Unbroken is a taste of what is to come, then I certainly look forward to future works from Desiree.

New artist on YTA ~ Samantha LaPorta

Samantha LaPorta, from Pensacola, Florida, is a pop singer with R&B in her soul.

With Taylor Swift being noted as a relative of hers, Samantha should feel right at home in the world of music. In fact she seems to belong there, as not only is she a singer, but she plays piano and guitar too.

Samantha gives private concerts for the children and families of the Ronald McDonald House & Nemours Children's Hospital, which has a special place in her heart.

One downside is that Samantha doesn't have a lot of content online at the moment in the way of videos for you to check out, hopefully this will change soon and we will see regular uploads. For now though check out her 'Summertime Hold On Me' video, it's great.

She also has a couple of originals up, such as My Wish and Fantastic, with more to follow I should imagine. This girl is one to watch for sure.

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

Newly added artist on YTA ~ Liv V

Normally I look for artists that have a bit of information online and that have links to all the major social sites when I feature them on here. Liv V, doesn't have either of those, but after watching her video for her latest song 'Silence' recently, I felt I just had to feature her.

Covering a young girls struggle with suicidal thoughts, 'Silence' deals with the girl finding it hard to handle silence when all she really wants is answers. In the video you witness her loneliness and frustration due to wanting/needing to know where she stands. Ultimately resulting in her walking into the ocean until she goes under, and her dress washes up on the shore as a note scribbled in a book is displayed with the words 'The silence was killing me' on the page.

Liv, from Michigan, America, is also the founder of Mission.OK which aims to raise awareness for Autoimmune diseases. Go show her some support and follow her on her Mission.OK instagram page too.

As time went on, more compliments rolled in from notable people, such as James Bay and Shawn Mendes. Even a lead role in a movie was offered to Alice, which she declined.

Alice plans to release her first EP in 2017.
