uni and her ukelele / Bio

Uni, the neo-vintage pop chanteuse/raconteur gathered up kickpants, a rockhawk and magical ruby slippers for the first time in 2004 and her 20’s punk movement has been gathering strength ever since.

On the world tour beat and in the recording studio she competes for the limelight with her prima Donna ukelele ‘Sally Luka’. Originally a singer/songwriter for over a decade, when she met the bawdy Uke she swallowed her pride and joined up for the raucous phenom that became known as Uni & her Ukelele, and having second billing has only made Sally more indignant. Having opened for the likes of James Brown, Huey Lewis, Kids in the Hall’s Scott Thompson, Ray Charles, The Four Tops, Tower of Power, Coco Taylor, Sean Hayes and Jollie Holland to name a few, Sally has had a taste of fame and Uni is now forced to take her to the top.

Uni’s lo-fi folk-pop, first album “My Favorite Letter is U” dropped in 2006. Total Classic!

Her recent EP “I’m On My Way” introduced her rock-ability with hits like the title track and “Twinkle Twinkle”.

Next she formed “Uni & the Ding! String Trio” who’s album “As Gold” which is truely phantasmagorical brilliant.

Everyone loves covers right? Uni and her Ukelele now has a cover album featuring her friends from all over the world! U can get this cd from her or at her shows.

What could Uni and her Ukelele do next? She put out a best of album called “U Comp”! All her hits are available on one album. All the artwork was donated by loving fan-friends!

2010 has been a big year for Uni and her Ukelele! She is finishing up yet another album and has been on tour in the States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand!

This performer’s, pan-demographic appeal is most likely a product of her impeccable synthesis of fantasy and reality, and her ability to juxtapose seemingly incongruous moods and aesthetics. Pundits are often her heard to muse: “That chick f*$kn’ rawks!
