Elise Ecklund (born: February 18, 1997YouTuber that makes YouTube videos about playing music, mostly playing covers of famous pop songs on her ukulele, Kidz Bop, and TikTok, the "cursed app" that she was forced to create to beat an imposter's follower count. She can play the ukulele, guitar, and didgeridoo.), is an American
Elise created her channel on the February 11th, 2015—however, her first upload was on March 11th, 2016, which was a guitar tutorial of the song 'Youth' by Troye Sivan. Her viewership gradually increased as she uploaded more and more consistently.
As her channel grew, so did her content range; she began uploading vlogs—mostly music related, but some straying from that topic, such as attempting to live twenty-four hours on her balcony, handcuffing herself to her sister for twenty-four hours, and cutting off part of her hair.
Elise holds the world record for writing the shortest song to ever be officially released; 'I Suffer More,' released on May 31st, 2019.
She has three brothers and two sisters, one of which is Eden Ecklund, who lives with Elise, frequently appears on her videos, and has her own active YouTube channel. Elise has also taught Eden and her mother to play ukulele in the past. She also has a dog named Sunshine, who she adopted in 2017.
Elise and Eden moved out of her parents' house in Bartlesville, Oklahoma in 2019 and moved into an apartment in Tulsa, Oklahoma, along with their dog, Sunshine. In 2020, after a carbon monoxide incident in the apartment building, both Ecklund sisters moved into a new house with Sunshine.
Elise has a boyfriend named Bryan, whom she met in October 2019 after an intense Jojo Siwa concert. She didn't address him until June 2020, when she introduced him on her channel.
Elise's channel began with ukelele and guitar tutorials of songs by popular music artists such as Twenty One Pilots, Melanie Martinez, and Halsey, later expanding her range to artists like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, and Panic at the Disco.
Once her YouTube channel really began to grow, Elise began writing songs using comments from her Twitter account, YouTube comments—both positive and negative, Instagram comments, and related concepts. She has also used an online lyric generator to write joke songs for her to sing, inhaled helium to make her voice higher as another joke, and has done a couple of speed-songwriting videos.
Elise has written many officially released songs, including I Suffer More—the world’s shortest song, I Hope My Ex Is Happy—an emo song about break ups and romance, Oof—a song written over the 'oof' sound effect from Roblox, which is a recurring joke on her channel, and many more. She uploads her official songs onto iTunes and Spotify.
