Songs and Artists that feature Ukulele
As a ukulele teacher, I am often asked to recommend songs or artists that have ukulele in them. The uke is becoming a lot more common as the years go by, and plenty of pop artists have incorporated it into their songs. Here, I present to you, some recommendations for listening! This will likely be the first of several posts, as I too am always looking for good uke tunes.
Israel Kamakawiwoʻole - Hawaiian singer and ukulele player, famous for his cover of Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Jake Shimabukuro - Ukulele virtuoso, has great videos of himself playing on YouTube
Grace Vanderwaal - Young ukulele player from America's Got Talent
Eddie Vedder - You may know him as the singer from Pearl Jam. He released a ukulele album in 2011 called "Ukulele Songs." Trust me, the songs are much more creative than the album title!
