History of ASMR – Early ASMR Artists

***List of Early ASMR artists on YouTube from 2009 – 2012***

How is the start date of a YouTube ASMR artist determined?

  • The start date of an ASMR artist is based on the upload date of their oldest, verifiable whisper/ASMR video.
  • It is not determined using their YouTube  “joined” date because they may have started uploading non-whisper/non-ASMR videos on that date.

Notice someone missing?

  • Just send me a link to their first whisper/ASMR video via asmruniversity@gmail.com
