Why they are on The Spotlight: Never has an unsigned act of any kind be armed with such power players behind them and being represented by the power players of The Collective (Plain White T’s, Desmond Child, John Feldmann, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) means they got some kind of spark and plenty of talent to boot to back it all up. The Michigan natives and fraternal twins are part and are in the front of a long line of YouTubers found by major players following the overnight success of Justin Bieber nearly three years ago, reshaping the way future music talent is scouted and courted. Armed with a fanbase and reach that some major label acts these days struggle to create and maintain of nearly 500,000 subscribers, countless Twitter followers and 100 million views on their YouTube account, the duo has brought their catchy but yet inspirational pop anthems and their fantastic covers of hit pop songs to the masses via the power of social media. Their next original video “Are You Happy Now” is being directed by Shenae Grimes of the hit CW Network show “90210”!
This is the reason The Spotlight has our lights trained on this twin sister 18 year old pop phenomenon and why Megan & Liz are DEFINITELY among the acts bubbling in 2011 and worth bear watching in 2012!
Music video: Here is their recent take on “Stereo Hearts”, originally done by Gym Class Heroes featuring Maroon 5’s Adam Levine. You’re going to find out why we have The Spotlight trained on these girls and future You Gotta Knows!
