YouTube Treasure Hunt #11

For those of you who don't know, "YouTube Treasure Hunts" are when I go looking for unknowns on YouTube. I normally set rules that I force myself to adhere to, and for the next 10 hunts the rules have changed. Below are the new rules:

1. Search for "Original Song" in the YouTube search bar.
2. Search options set as: Videos, Relevance, Today & Music.
3. I will look through the first 7 pages of results only.
4. Anyone who sits down in front of a camera & sings an original song could be featured in the "YouTube Treasure Hunt". I do try to find lesser known YouTubers with around 100 subscribers or less, but that part is flexible as you'll see.
5. I can feature older videos from people I stumble across & related videos.
6. Unlimited searches allowed.

The last rule is the BIG change. I plan on doing about 1 "YTTH" each month, so in that time I might search 2 or 3 times. In the past I just set aside 1 day. Sometimes I didn't end up finding much talent that way. So now if I search & come up with only 3 good videos, I'll save them, then search again on another day for more. This will mean I'll be featuring MORE talent then in the first 10 "YTTH" blogs. Enough with the rambling...time for you to start listening to some new talent.

Best Of The Best #1

To date, I've done 10 "YouTube Treasure Hunts". Some of the people I featured, I ended up subscribing to. Today, I'm featuring the people who have been my favorite YouTubers since being featured in a one of the hunts. If you're looking for new talent to sub to on YouTube...these people are a good place to start. I'll be doing 1 hunt each month from now on, and there may be some rule changes. I'll give you more details on that next weekend....which is when the next hunt will probably be posted.

My Philosophy by Elliott Kimmel
Elliott has been fairly active on YouTube since I subscribed, and I haven't heard a bad song yet. His subscriber total is already growing (661 to 810), so don't be late to this bandwagon.


Save The Night by Dini Kimmel (934 subs)
Finding Elliott had a bonus...turns out his wife Dini is also a musician. She was never featured in a "YouTube Treasure Hunt", but if not for the project, I would have never found her.


Now We're Whole by Elliott & Dini Kimmel
As good as they are on their own, they're even better together. It was like finding an unknown Pomplamoose.

zerobio & jejakjemariMusic

Misanthrope's Lament (People Suck) by Glen Raphael
Since I featured Glen, he participated in "Masters Of Song Fu 6". He's only made a small jump in subscribers (30 to 39) so go check his music out.

glenra & @glenraphael

Call It A Day by Eli Lieb
When I first subbed Eli he had 101 subs...he's now up to 318. I can only take credit for 1 of those subs, but I hope he keeps gaining momentum.

elilieb & @elilieb

I Think We've Made It by Craig Bevan
Craig doesn't have much original stuff up yet, but I'm still glad I subbed his channel. His sub count went from 518 to 843

MrCraigBevan & @MrCraigBevan

Paint Me A Picture by Alina Ostrow
Unfortunately she hasn't had much of an increase in subs yet, going from 183 to 204.
