Youtube is full of different ways of entertaining those who log onto the website. There are infamous cat videos, sketches, and short films, but there is also music. This is where a good majority of Youtube’s views come from. However, there are artists who started on Youtube. The video website is a great place to try and find new music because they can put out covers and original music as well. These are some of the artists who have been able to use Youtube as their stage and gain a fan base.
Walk Off the Earth is probably the most well known of the musical artists on Youtube. This was the group who did the cover of Goyte’s “Somebody I Used to Know,” which has over 164,000,000 views on Youtube. This is the video of the five of them using one guitar to perform the song. They were on Ellen and have since recorded an album. Their ability to use almost anything as instruments is what has led to the band’s channel receiving over two million subscribers. They have the same approach for their original music as well, so their fans are left guessing what they’re going to use in every song.
