Favorite Musicians from Youtube

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

YouTube has become this massive  platform for content creators alike. From musicians to filmmakers to cooks and everything in between, it's a social platform for videos and a place where people can flourish and show off their talents (or, occasionally, a lack thereof). Fortunately, these five girls have immense amounts of talent and should be showing it off to the world, through albums, through videos, through every possible media they can.

1. Mree

Mree (Marie Hsiao) is the female version of Bon Iver, though I don't want the comparison to strip her of her talent. She uses loop pedals like a pro, her layering in her music is ethereal, and she does it completely on her own. One girl, one voice, many instruments, and a final product that is absolute gold. Her covers of songs are so unique, her own style inserted into the already popular songs. And then when it comes to her own music, her lyrics are the equivalent of a summer day. They flow, they glide, they are so smooth when combined with her voice.

To listen to: her covers of "Blood" by The Middle East, "Michicant" by Bon Iver; her original songs "Into the Well," "Life Me Up," "Monsters," "You Are," and "Grow (Instrumental). 

2. Laura Zocca

Laura has the voice of an angel, I swear. Her voice is so soothing, so gorgeous. It's like velvet, honestly. She covers so many songs and always immediately after their releases too. But even her covers seem like originals. She just dominates, honestly. And don't even get me started on her original songs because those are honestly the best part about Laura. She's so prolific and poetic and I just adore her to pieces.

To listen to: her cover of "Out of the Woods" by Taylor Swift, shared by Taylor herself. 

3. Sarah Close

Not only did she get the chance to wear a Giambattista Valli dress (my two worlds have collided...), but she's just incredible all around. Her covers are solid (and her taste in music is incredible), her piano skills are enviable, and she even does these Q&A videos where she turns the questions into a song and it's just so perfect. She's so talented!

To listen to: her covers of "Style" by Taylor Swift, "Love Me Like You Do" by Ellie Goulding, "Take Me To Church" by Hozier, and "Not On Drugs" by Tove Lo.


Another girl with another angelic voice. She reminds me a lot of Laura Zocca stylistically, just with a piano instead of a guitar. Don't be fooled by her soft spokenness though, because the girl can sing. I love listening to her when I'm writing late at night because it's just so soothing.

To listen to: her covers of "Only Love" by Ben Howard, "Wildest Dreams" by Taylor Swift, and "Poison and Wine" by The Civil Wars.
