Newly added artist on YTA ~ Brandon Evans

Brandon Evans is a singer from Connecticut, United States...

...and that's all I know about him, despite searching intensively for more information to put on here.

I can say though that over the last 6 years, Brandon has uploaded almost 300 videos, which equates to about one a week, and that is extremely good going.

I found Brandon and all of his links after a loyal Instagram friend requested that I check him out.

New artist on YTA ~ London Kyle

London Kyle is singer & songwriter from Huntington Beach, California.

...and that was all I could find out about him.

Warning: Procede with caution if you decide to check his music & videos out, as some of them contain language and themes that would be deemed unsuitable for children.

That's not to say you shouldn't check him out. You should, because he sounds great.

New artist on YTA ~ Madysyn Rose

Singer Madysyn Rose is from Orange County, California. I came across her when she teamed up with Maddie Wilson for a collaboration recently.

Madysyn is not the only member of her family that has taken to YouTube to show off their talents, her dad is YouTube prankster Jack Vale.

Despite having loved to sing all of her life, Madysyn had to overcome a shyness that made it hard to sing in front of people.

Madysyn counts Adriana Grande, Jessie J, and Torri Kelly as her inspirations and would love to meet Ariana to talk about hair.

Newly listed artist on YTA ~ Shell Marie (formerly Michelle Willis)

From Zachary, Louisiana, comes pop singer Shell Marie (formerly Michelle Willis).

Shell has performed in many musical theater productions and even landed the lead role of Annie in Annie, the Musical. In addition to musical theater, Shell has sung in numerous community events and festivals.

Shell has a large selection of videos on YouTube for you to check out. Some are home recordings that are well worth watching and some are live performances that really show a true professional doing her thing.

Her video for Castle by Halsey is a must watch as far as I'm concerned.

New artist on YTA ~ Jessica Louise

Jessica Louise is an Indie R&B Singer, Songwriter and guitarist from Long Beach, California.

Her debut EP 'Voices' which was created after a successful Indiegogo campaign has production that was inspired by the sounds of The Weeknd, Jhene Aiko and Amy Winehouse.

If you like live performances then you will like the 27 minute video that Jessica has on her YouTube channel from when she performed at the Lexington in Los Angeles.

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.

Newly added artist on YTA ~ Lena Stone

Lena grew up in Carlisle, Massachusetts, but just after her 18th birthday, she relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a career as a country artist and songwriter.

As well as having a great voice, she is also a great guitarist.

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.

Most of the content on Lena's channel is original content. Hopefully as time goes on Lena will upload lots more music, whether it's covers or originals, it doesn't matter, because whatever it is, it is sure to sound great.

New artist on YTA ~ Madison

Madison comes from the North Shore of Kauai, Hawaii, but has since relocated to Los Angeles, California.

She started performing professionally at 13 years old and is a ukulele player, acoustic guitarist and electric guitarist.

On Madison's channel you will find a large selection of live performances and what she calls "Sneak Peek/At Home With Madison" videos. Some of these are covers and the rest are originals.

I particularly like the "Sneak Peek/At Home With Madison" videos.

New artist on YTA ~ Olivia Thai

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.

New artist listed on YTA ~ Rosey Cale

Rosey Cale from Pembrokeshire, South Wales in the UK, is a singer, songwriter, pianist and guitarist.

She began writing music and uploading to YouTube in 2013. 2014 saw her start performing live in her local area. Since then has continued to reach further afield with her music.

As recently as this September Rosie put her first original EP 'Creating Images' up on the likes of Spotify, Google Play Music and iTunes.

Going to her channel will take you to her small(ish) but great collection of covers and originals, and it's going to be great watching her progress from here.

Newly added artist on YTA ~ Cally Rhodes

Cally Rhodes is a singer, songwriter and pianist from Shrewsbury, England.

This young artist counts electronic and pop as her musical style.

Cally released an EP called Hearts and Gasoline this year, and one of the tracks from it titled The King has even been played on BBC Radio 1.

Check out Cally's covers on her YouTube channel, and her originals on all the usual download and streaming sites.

New artists listed on YTA ~ Twin Melody

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.

Newly added artist on YTA ~ Erica Mourad

Erica Ann Mourad is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Detroit, Michigan.

She is a member of The Euphorics, a band consisting of four members, but also has quite a collection of covers and originals on her own channel, so I decided to get her listed on here separately too.

As well as uploading to YouTube quite regularly, Erica also performs live at venues.

Erica's love of music led to her writing her own material. She also privately studies playing other instruments such as the piano and flute.
