Elise Ecklund is a YouTuber who hails from Oklahoma.
She’s probably most famous for officially releasing the world’s shorted song
The young Bartlesville muso is popular with a tween audience for creating fun, inspiring videos and original music.
She plays the ukulele, the guitar, the Australian-Aboriginal didgeridoo, and even a kazoo.
In 2019, the soft-voiced songstress joined the Hal Leonard European tour.
One of the most influential women on the ukulele YouTube circuit, Elise has gained a whopping 1.9 million subscribers. And her most popular video has been viewed 14 million times! (P.S. It’s this one)
But there’s more to this young Oklahoma jewel than a pretty voice and purple hair.
She’s got talent, she’s got style, she’s got the internet hanging off her every word. Here’s what she’s been doing so far.
The Origin Story
Elise Ann Ecklund was born on February 18, 1997, in Wichita, Kansas.
She has five siblings—two sisters and three brothers.
Elise grew up in Arizona and Oklahoma, attending Mountain View High School in the Marana district of Tucson.
When she graduated from high school, she went on to study at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, before pursuing a Master’s Degree in Political Science.
She didn’t graduate, instead returned home to teach piano and try her hand as a content creator.
In 2019, Elise and her sister Eden made the move out of their parents’ house.
They moved from Bartlesville to Tulsa, Oklahoma, with Elise’s dog, Sunshine. Not too long after the big move, the pair were forced to move again, because of a carbon monoxide leak in their building.
They moved into a house with a yard for Sunshine the dog.
If Elise’s sister’s name is familiar, there’s a good reason.
Eden Ecklund is also a YouTube content creator in her own right. She’s most well-known for her quirky storytime videos and vlogs—although she also plays the ukulele and piano.
Eden got her start on her kid sister’s YouTube channel, after seeing how lucrative life as an influencer could be.
Elise’s older sister is often the victim of sibling pranking, with Elise going so far as to fake-uninvite her sister to her 2021 wedding.
The dynamic duo also has a sister named Chantel.
Chantel is featured in some of Eden and Elise’s videos but prefers life out of the spotlight.
Chantel studied Human Development and Family Science at Oklahoma State University.
Elise’s brothers don’t feature in her videos at all, although Brit is responsible for some of the editing.

Ecklund discovered that British grindcore band, Napalm Death, were the world record holders for the shortest song in the world, with You Suffer. The song had four lyrics and was 1.316 seconds long.
In May 2019, she beat that record.
Possibly for no reason other than to hold a world record for something, Ecklund released a song with a 35-second official music video. The song itself is only 0.875 seconds long and only has three lyrics.
And that is how Elise Ecklund’s I Suffer More became the shortest song ever released.
Love Is In The Air
In October 2019, after meeting on the Bumble dating app, Elise went to a Jojo Siwa concert with Bryan Landry.
The pair hit it off, and in June 2020 she introduced him to her massive following.
One thing led to another, and the pair got engaged on New Year’s Eve that year.
On the 17th June 2021, Elise posted a photo of her and her official husband on Instagram, captioning it “best day ever with the love of my life.”
The loved-up pair tied the knot at the Spain Ranch in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Elise employed the services of J Gwyn Rainey for her photography, MLB Artistry for her makeup, and Hannah Miller Artistry for hair.

Elise launched her first video—a cover and tutorial of Troye Sivan’s Youth—in March 2016. Her channel grew organically, and so did her content variety.
From vlogs to challenges to playing pranks on her sister, Elise was broadening her horizons.
The move paid off.
By 2021, she had close to two million subscribers on YouTube.
She posts tutorials for both ukulele and guitar, breaking down acoustic renditions of songs by Ed Sheeran, Twenty One Pilots, Halsey, Billie Eilish, and Taylor Swift.
As her popularity grew, so did the number of trolls in her video comments.
Instead of falling prey to the negativity, she turned the tables on her haters by writing songs using only the comments section of her videos. She used a mixture of positive and negative comments to create a musical narrative, and these songs became her most popular content on YouTube.
