Top 10 YouTube Musicians


The Top Ten

1 Lindsey Stirling Violinist

I love Lindsey! She's so talented, a great dancer, and my woman crush! I dream of being like her someday (maybe not the dancing, I have two left feet)!

I started to play the violin because of her. I'm listening to her right now. Absolutely fantastic. - CatnissNevergreen

An amazing, creative, intelligent, inspiring, and talented artist. Lindsey has no equal on the planet.

Amazing. Period. - Ohno

2 Pentatonix

Pentatonix is changing the way we listen to music. The bass and percussion are by far the best of any a cappella group ever, and the lead singers can more than just carry a tune. Watch just one of their videos and you will soon find yourself scouring the internet for every clip you can find.

Pentatonix never fails to entertain. I first discovered the greatest A Capella group ever through their "evolution of music" medley one day, and I have been hooked on them since! They inspire me to improve my already-angelic voice, and they are just so amazing!

I've been a fan of these guys since the sing off! They are my biggest inspiration for what I do and I hop I can work with them someday! - MusicGazer

Just perfect

Those guys are amazingly creative and a blast to listen to. Their ability to weave themes from classical music into their covers of popular songs adds more depth to music.

They combine classical music and contemporary hot trends, on top of that every video is shot amazingly with attention to intricate details, a simple delight to watch. Cheers from Canada!

Piano guys. That's all that needs to be said to fix the world, the environment and everything

I love them! They catch my attention every time! Listening to their Rachael Platten one right now!

Amazing musician hosting also other musicians with very nice skills and real nice quality videos. His songs are covers of others' famous songs with really nice audio equipment when recorded. The videos are also professional and they are real fun as well.

This guys is absolutely incredible! I would love to meet him and just see how he produces his music and videos. I think he deserves to be much higher in the list!

Kurt's the best with anything he plays and he is my absolute favorite and his voice...oh god I fell in love with I every time

Only one word "amazing"

Honestly and amazing songwriter and multi-instrumentalist

He can basically play anything with strings like a total pro!

His guitar is like a keyboard but less limiting

8 Jared Dines Jared Dines Jared Dines (Born October 6th 1992) is an American musician from Washington, who is best known for his success and works on YouTube based on the Heavy Metal genre. He is also the vocalist for the band Dissimulator and the drummer for Rest, Repose and has a strong following of 1 million subscribers as more.

I like him very much - useful yet funny vodeos. - Metal_Treasure

Currently the most subscribed Heavy Metal YouTuber (Or at least from what I've seen). Although his newest material is Deathcore (Which I'm not a fan of), his comedy antics (Usually based around on music) and metal covers on popular songs makes him likable. In addition, he's also a pretty nice and honest guy in person so that's a plus :). - CrimsonShark

9 Kina Grannis

Beautiful music and lyrics all the time.

She's plain perfect. She should be in the top ten! :(
She's so amazing and talented and her voice has so much quality.
She makes the most creative music videos like "In Your Arms"

She's great!

14 Andrew Huang

I don't even have the words to explain the level this guy is on. He is a music making machine who bounces from genre to genre with incredible ease. He puts out content twice a week and always manages to make me either laugh, cry, think critically, or all the above. He deserves way more subscribers!

He should be #1. Have you seen his videos? - Mcguy215

He's just so awesome and makes me happy. Olive him.

He is the most subscribed musician on YouTube and should be at the top of this list!

He's great! He makes really good covers and he's always silly and funny. I especially like his original songs like "Olive You" and "What Does It Take".

27 Megan Nicole Megan Nicole Megan Nicole Flores, simply known as Megan Nicole, is an American singer-songwriter and actress and model who debuted on YouTube in 2009.

Come on! Number 8? Megan Nicole should be at least in the top three! Think about it: she's gorgeous, has an amazing voice, plays four instruments, and is so nice!

COME ON! Number 12? Seriously? Megan is awesome with her covers and more awesome with her originals! She is such a nice musician! Love her and her music!

29 Alex G Alex G Alexander Giannascoli, better known by his stage name Alex G, is a multi-instrumentalist from Philadelphia who started his career as a bedroom singer/songwriter, building up an audience through a series of DIY releases on Bandcamp.

He is awesome... Isten and just love his compositions. Especially "one more night of maroon 5 with severa;l other collaborators... Chrissy costanaza and julia had given a great go..

30 AJ Rafael

His songs are all so amazing. It seems like every time he picks up a guitar or sits down at a piano a song deserving to be in iTunes's top ten pops out and he makes a video out of that.

His music is easy to connect to and his songs could easily make it to the top of the iTunes charts if it played on radios.

This guy is an amazing singer. I have all of his songs. He deserves to have all ten of the top songs on itunes. Serously. When I hear him sing I smile uncontrollably. He should be number one, and Alex Goot should be two.

41 Cimorelli

They're incredibly caring to their fans and will interact as much as they possibly can via dm's on twitter, liking pictures and commenting on Instagram and eve snapchatting a bunch of fans as well. They make their songs based on the type of music which would have helped them when they were younger, to help with confidence or self acceptance. They left a big record label because they were being told to do things they didn't want to do!

They're now working without a label and are still being able to produce an album! Just with the help of their family, friends and their fans! They're incredible and their family in general are just amazing and so supportive of their choices and moved across the country for them to continue their singing career!

If you haven't heard of them you should definitely check them out!

They are six girls and they are so amazing! They harmonize so well and they are just incredible! I love these girls so much and they do a ton of covers!

Their covers are the best. They all are sisters and how they sing is just incredible :) I love them

45 Peter Hollens

His content is super diverse. He does Christmas music, Popular songs nowadays, songs from movies, songs from video games as well. Some of his most popular videos include his Disney Medley, Skyrim Theme, and I see Fire from the Hobbit

Peter is truly amazing and I think should be higher up this list. His range blows and his tenor is ripping

Best solo artist on YouTube. He has an amazing range and does great renditions of popular songs. He is severely underrated

Hallelujah has over 1.5 million YouTube views
