From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards YouTube Musician

YouTube lets musicians cut through all the red tape of the industry and get their music directly to listeners, which has changed the music business and created a new generation of superstars. While that means there’s more music than ever to choose from, these YouTube musicians are a cut above the rest, each primed for their big break.

If you’re a brand looking for recognition for your use of YouTube, enter the Best on YouTube Shorty Award.
