Kina Grannis

Cute video, nice song. I listened to an interview with Kina Grannis on This Week In Music and really enjoyed hearing how she grew her career organically through her youtube page and taking the time to interact with her fans at shows and through social media. Social promotion and online marketing is the future of the music business. A business that does not need media moguls or fat cat producers, just talent and drive. Good looks don't hurt either.

Seems like she has borrowed a little bit from another youtube favorite of mine, Pomplamoose, who got a lot of attention last Christmas with the Hyundai holiday commercial.

One of my favorite covers they have done, Beyonce's "Single Ladies." Somehow those vocals gain a particular haunting quality, especially combined with Nataly Dawn's deadpan stare.
