Journey to the End of the Youtube Artists

Michelle Mirza, Editorials/Two Cents & That's Rad Editor

Spotify is an absolute blessing that the music lords have brought upon our world, a world where awkward chit chat with strangers is more painful than the brocolli your mom tried to sneak into your meals as a child, a world where music is an incredible ‘get-out-of-jail’ free card when avoiding social situations. Having such a wide array of songs at your fingertips is power. It’s all you’ve ever wanted. It’s satisfying. Even more satisfying than a Snickers.

So many people have invested in Spotify and love and cherish it even more than their non-existent children (myself included – sorry, little Tommy).

It’s understandable why everyone is so infatuated with it, but this is where we’re wrong. Although Spotify’s pros definitely outweigh its cons (you can stick those 15 second ads where the sun doesn’t shine), there is a whole other population of talented artists on the once loved YouTube that are just waiting to earn the recognition they deserve. I am fully aware of how much we love convenience and how the less work you have to do, the more appealing the task seems, so I did you a favor to get you started and compiled a list of some of my own favorite artists on YouTube. You’re welcome. Happy discovering!
