5 YouTube Musicians To Add To Your Playlists

Are your Spotify faves starting to sound a little old? You’re in luck. Today we’re talking good sounds from good people, all of whom have started and continue to grow their music careers on YouTube.

To keep this list from being hundreds of artists long, the musicians on here will all be people that we believe deserve to see way more success than what they have on the platform so far.

So pop in your headphones and get ready for some sick tunes.

Orla Gartland

Not only a talented guitarist, Gartland has serious vocal skill. Debuting her channel back in 2009 with a cover of Hey Ya by Outkast, Gartland has come a long way to establish a loyal fan base of 135K subscribers on YouTube.

 Some of our favourite covers from Gartland include: The Sound/Somebody Else Mashup and Torn, but some of her best work lies in the creation of her original music.

Stranger is definitely an original track worth having a listen to as is pretty much everything the talented songstress creates.

In Love With A Ghost

A Lo-Fi pianist with quirky tracks of varying lengths is what you can expect from In Love With A Ghost. With 333K YouTube subscribers after only two years of consistent uploads, the musician’s talent speaks for itself.

If you’re looking for an album to listen to while studying or just winding down, all the latest Lo-Fi sounds come together in gay story; a collection of tunes released last month.

Do yourself a favour and add these songs to your playlist if you’re stressed, or honestly if you just want to grace your eardrums with pure bliss.
