Latest Featured Artist on YTA ~ Steven Martinez

Steven Martinez is a country/pop, singer/songwriter, originally from New York City but is now located in Boston, Massachusetts.

He taught himself how to play guitar at 13 years old. That and his love of music led to him learning how to play drums, bass and piano and several other instruments.

Steven found himself producing and engineering music from his project studio for highschool friends, which led to him getting hired as a Sound Tech at a summer camp, and ultimately led to him getting hired to produce an EP for a 2000+ member church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Todays Featured Artist - Hannah Trigwell

Hannah Trigwell is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Leeds, England, UK.

Her career started at the age of 17 on the streets of Leeds, where she could be found busking. This led to her being encouraged to start uploading her music to YouTube.

Despite this humble beginning, Hannah has now had two Number one singles in Laos and Vietnam and performed at The Isle of Wight Festival 2016 playing to sold-out crowds alongside Jess Glynne, Jake Bugg, Lawson, Boyce Avenue and more.

New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Lexi Lauren

Lexi Lauren is a singer and songwriter from California, USA.

Lexi has only been uploading videos to YouTube for 4 months, but already has over 20 for you to check out. Twelve of those are Christmas videos though, as she cleverly counted down the 12 days leading up to Christmas with a festive song each day (with the exception of one day that she missed for some reason).

Prior to uploading to YouTube, Lexi could be found uploading covers to Instagram, and those first few covers did well, possibly encouraging her to start posting on YouTube too.

Latest Featured Artist on YTA ~ Natasha Hicks

Natasha Hicks is a 13 year old, singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist from America.

She is very new to the YouTube scene and uploaded her first video (City of Stars - La La Land) in February this year. At the time of writing it is the only video that she has up, but if future uploads can be based on how good she sounds in that first video then I am sure she will be providing viewers with great videos for years to come.

Natasha started taking music lessons about 2 years ago, but only started to take music very seriously about 2 months ago.

New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Sarah Brown

Sarah Brown is a singer, songwriter, pianist and ukulele player from Cardiff, Wales in the UK.

Being a regular on the live circuit keeps Sarah busy with her music and she can be found performing in and around the Cardiff area quite often.

Sarah is not just confined to the live circuit though, as her music has been played on BBC introducing, BBC Radio Wales, Kiss FM and local radio stations all over the UK.

Latest Featured Artist on YTA ~ Annelie

Annelie is a singer, pianist and ukelele player from the United States, but I think she might be Swedish due to a little sign off in her YouTube bio that says "Ha det Gott!!".

As well as being a musician, Annelie has another passion in life, which is gymnastics.

Annelie has been uploading to YouTube since April 2015 and has 34 videos up to enjoy so far, although some of them are very short versions of covers.

I feel there could be plenty more videos to come as time goes by and that they will only get better and better.

New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Shae Brock

Shae Brock is a singer, guitarist and piano player from Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Her YouTube channel isn't exactly overflowing with content, but it is definitely quality over quantity, because the content that she does have on there is amazing. There is a selection of live performances, as well as some really excellent official music videos.

Shae was once featured on the cover of a magazine called "So Scottsdale", with a really cool write up about her inside. The article can be downloaded here: Download a copy of Shae Brocks featured article in "So Scottsdale!" magazine

Despite the lack of content on Shae's channel, I am in no doubt that there will be plenty more interesting stuff to come, and I for one can't wait.

The Featured Artist for today is Summer Beale

Summer Beale actually goes by the name Summer B when she uploads music.

She isn't particularly a regular uploader to YouTube, in fact she only has five videos up. She has four videos on musical.ly, one of which has done extremely well, but the place to really find her covers is on Instagram, where she uploads roughly one a week.

Summer's first upload on YouTube, which was a cover of Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes, has gained an amazing 110,128 views to date.

I have taken a gamble on featuring Summer on here, hoping that she will upload lots more on YouTube in the future, because she really deserves to be heard more.
