ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NYC-based singer-songwriter Jon Braman carries and plays the ukulele everywhere he goes. His unique style of music, which combines Jon’s rapping and ukulele playing with a live hip-hop band, was born after listening to Outkast’s classic album ‘Southernplayalisticadillacmuzic’. With drums, bass, keys, horns, beatbox, harmonies and sparring with fellow MCs - the Jon Braman Band is a truly one-of-a-kind musical experience going down right now in NYC. Folkies and indie rockers vibe with the living-room aesthetic, hip hop heads and poets get hooked on the flow, and no one expects a ukulele to provide such a driving foundation. As one reviewer put it, “Imagine Outkast had a baby, and it was Jimmy Buffet.”

Dubbed ‘Father of ukulele hip hop’ in 2007 by the Washington City Paper, Braman hasn’t looked back. He has opened for ukulele world champion, Jake Shimabukuro at Gramercy Theater, is the resident songwriter for WBAI’s Artsy Fartsy show (99.5 FM), is a three-time Mountain Stage NewSong regional finalist and co-hosts’ monthly underground cross-genre musical phenomenon, 'The Melting Pot' at Pianos in NYC’s Lower Eastside. Look out in Winter 2013 for the new special-edition Internationally release of his album 'You and Me'.
