ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Some sharp funny, charming and devilishly catchy ukelelism. Ukelilli's up there with the two Georges (Formby and Harrison) for championing the diminutive guitar and I thoroughly recommend her." (Simon Pegg, star and co-writer of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, "Scotty" from Star Trek)

Ukelilli is a singer-songwriter with a comedy/folk/pop sensibility, hailing from the D.C. suburb of Chevy Chase (no relation). Now living in Los Angeles, Ukelilli has been building a passionate cult following thanks to her adorable persona and quirky repertoire of songs. At a Ukelilli show you’re likely to hear everything from a punk ukulele anthem, to an ode to the films of Jean-Claude Van Damme, to a twisted loved song called “I Love You So Much (I’d Prefer It If You Were Not Dead).”

Ukelilli has recorded 7 albums, 4 of which are currently available for sale through iTunes, CDBaby, and at stores all over LA, including the famed Ameoba Music. Since 2006, she has sold more than 6,000 tracks online. Her music video, “Vote for Obama,” was a YouTube viral hit in the last election. (Obama has so far declined to comment on Ukelilli, but Washington scuttlebutt has it he’s a fan.)

She has played in clubs all over LA, including a standing monthly gig at El Cid, one of the coolest venues in Silverlake, and was a special guest of The Ukulady on the Hippodrome Shuttle, which tours Downtown ArtWalk LA.

Her music has been featured on the soundtrack of a Zappos commercial, the international festival-winning short film Cracks, indie feature Natural Victims, and the “Intern Journal” on The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou DVD.

Ukelilli has an international fanbase and has been invited to play at Ukelear Meltdown, England’s largest ukulele festival, in February 2010.

SUPER SPECIAL THANKS FOR THIS CD to John, Zak, Gage, Eva and most of all Gary for his magical producing of this wacky compilation of Ukelilli brain thoughts. Also, thanks to the Kinks, Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel, and Ozzy. And, of course, extras special thanks to friends, family, loved ones, and FANS!

Ukelilli is simply the coolest woman on the planet. I was going to say she is Kimya Dawson with humour and smarts but that detracts from the uniqueness of her music. I think what's unique is that her music is inspiring, she makes life sound a ticklish spicy adventure.

My favourite songs on this album are "It makes me think the worst of you" which elegantly and truthfully describes how you find yourself staring at a stranger you thought was a soulmate. The cover of Crazy Train is magnificent.

When will Ukelilli become as huge as she deserves to be? I think 2009 is going to be her year.
