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.
