The digital age has changed the face of music. It’s changed the way we listen to music and the way we make music. But one of the biggest things it has changed is the way we discover new music. YouTube has launched or improved the careers of a huge number of artists, some that you will have heard of, and some that you are yet to hear about
Lana Del Ray
You’ve probably heard of this sultry songstress. After releasing her first album, she uploaded a video for her song ‘Video Games’ which gained her so much popularity, she was asked to perform on Saturday Night Live. The video now has over 74 million views!
So he may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but back in 2007, he was an angelic-faced teen with a pretty sweet voice. After posting clips of himself singing to YouTube, he was spotted by none other than Usher, and was signed up to his label, launching him into fame. Nice one Usher…
This talented little guy went viral with his rendition of Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi at his sixth grade festival. The YouTube video caught the attention of TV star Ellen DeGeneres, and Greyson was invited onto her show, and later signed to her label.
