David Choi / Jeff LeBlanc
David Yong Choi is a Korean American musician and YouTube video producer living in Los Angeles. On YouTube, he has more than 900,000 subscribers, 102 million total video views, and more than 13 million channel views. As of November 2011 he is YouTube's 15th most subscribed musician and 62nd most subscribed user overall.
Choi performs a mix of original songs and covers of pop hits. He released his debut album, Only You, in October 2008. His second album, By My Side, was released on May 19, 2010. His songs and tracks have been heard on NBC, FOX, VH1, MTV, A&E, E!, Travel Channel, Style, PBS, Food Network, and Disney, as well as in commercials internationally.
His humorous song "YouTube, A Love Song" has received more than 2.6 million views. The music videos for his singles "Won't Even Start" and "That Girl," which are posted on both his and producers Wong Fu Productions' YouTube channels, have received a total of over 5 million views. He also posts nonmusic videos such as vlogs on his second channel. Choi often appears in online videos with fellow YouTube personalities, mostly playing a humorous character with a very straight face (his prominent trait). Some YouTube personalities, like Shane Dawson and Wong Fu Productions, use Choi's music in their videos.
Jeff LeBlanc is using his college degree a little differently than he first envisioned. His immediately familiar-sounding blend of pop and acoustic rock quickly took him from dorm room concerts at Sacred Heart University to a 60-date tour of colleges across the country, where he was praised as everything from "the new John Mayer" to an artist "perfectly in tune with his audience." His debut album, Signals, has scored praise from the likes of Clear Channel, Sirius/XM Radio, Seventeen Magazine, and AOL Music.
After graduation, he hit the road, headlining venues across the U.S. and also opening for artists like the Goo Goo Dolls, Ingrid Michaelson, Matt Nathanson, Augustana, Brett Dennen, Jon McLaughlin, Lee DeWyze, and Third Eye Blind.
