New Jersey native Alice Kristiansen has made a name for herself on YouTube. She puts her own spin on your favorite songs from artists like Lana Del Rey, The Lumineers, and Ed Sheeran. Those covers have earned her over 470K subscribers, and over 41 MILLION video views.
But as we all know, no ‘cover artist’ is content with just turning out their renditions of other artists’ songs. The goal is always to get to a level where their fan base will continue on with them to the next chapter… original music. And trust me, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Yes, people may care about your cover, but do they care about YOU as an artist?
I got a chance to chop it up with Alice the other day. We talked about everything… how her big break came from Ashton Kutcher, to how Lana Del Rey inspires her musically. She also told me about some awesome compliments that have come her way from people like Astrid S and Shawn Mendes. Check out the full interview below.
Of course I had to play ‘Famous 4heads’ with Alice as well. After having a little bit of a rocky start, I gotta say… she was probably the best YouTuber at the game that we’ve had in-studio up to this point!
