These musicians are using their talents and the power of music to help us relax during this weird time.
It’s understandable to be feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment, and with the constant stream of news updates, it’s quite easy to get lost inside your own head. Well, what better way to find a moment of zen than to sit down and listen to some relaxing tracks performed by YouTube musicians? We have collected four amazing tracks to help give you a bit of peace at this difficult time.
Prepare to be amazed by the talent!
First is musician and YouTuber Daisy Clark, who regularly posts covers and original songs to her growing audience. Not letting the lockdown blues stop her, Daisy has posted an original song called stuck with you. She calls the new track “a song about two star-crossed lovers in quarantine, or just about missing ur pals and ur fam”. It certainly offers a soft moment of peace during a chaotic time.
Daisy has also been putting on live streams to help keep us entertained. If you need a good wind-down at the end of the day, we suggest checking out her videos.
Next is New Zealand musician/creator Iris Zhang, whose recent cover of Lauv’s Modern Loneliness manages to encapsulate what we imagine a majority of people are feeling right now. Iris is able to add her own personality into the cover with a hauntingly gentle and soulful performance. This beautiful track is a perfect accompaniment to get you through hard times when we just want to feel our emotions.
Iris might not have an enormous YouTube following just yet, but she is certainly an artist on the rise and worth checking out.
It would be pretty hard to write about creators making music on YouTube and not mention dodie, one of the driving musical forces on the platform.
dodie has recently shared a collection of unfinished demos to both of her channels, as well as penning a track to wash your hands to. One video in particular to check out is the recently released all my daughters, a nostalgia-fuelled exploration of the past. No doubt many of us are feeling nostalgic for the past during this lockdown, and dodie captures the feeling beautifully.
Finally, we have a creator we’ve only very recently stumbled across, who has just under 200 subscribers on YouTube. Ayrton Jimenez is an up-and-coming force in the world of online music – truly a hidden gem. The recent video for his original song One Of A Kind is influenced by the blues and demonstrates an incredibly uplifting voice with incredible guitar playing skills. Treat yourself to something that less than 200 people have heard and give it a listen.
A feel good song is definitely needed right now.
These creators are music to our ears!
There are so many more amazing creators we could have highlighted (and might in the future), but these four musicians are offering a bright ray of positivity with these soothing lockdown tracks. We hope they’re able to provide you with hours of music to keep you grounded this time!
