New Featured Artist on YTA ~ Jade Katya

Jade Katya is a singer from London, England, UK.

Having turned down the chance of signing a record label contract with Danny P Pierre (who was working at Sony EMI records), due to feeling intimidated by the whole process because of her young age, the complexity of the contract and not having any managerial guidance on such matters, Jade now feels she has gained the confidence and right kind of attitude to take herself to the next level and take the leap of signing a contract.

Caity Copley is a pop/rock/jazz singer and pianist from Los Angeles, California, USA.

Despite only uploading 13 videos in almost 4 years, with the most recent being 4 months ago, Caity's channel is well worth a visit because the content is great.

Caity counts Sara Bareilles, Adele, Jon McLaughlin, Katy Perry, Parachute, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz among her influences.

Artists' Birthdays now added to their listings

I'm always trying to think of new ways to drive people to the website, in the hope that they will find links that they never knew artists/bands had, and also in the hope that they will discover new artists/bands that they might like.

So, I've (slowly) spent the last couple of months checking out all of the pages of the artists that I have listed on here, trying to find their birthdays. I didn't find as many as I would of liked to of found, but at least I found some. They are now listed underneath the artists links on the artists pages.

It's always great when an artist does this sort of post, because not only are they wanting to put music out there for other peoples pleasure, they also want to put information out there that they feel could help others.
