A new Ukulele phenomena and revival has been happening all over the world and has now hit the University campuses, beaches and homes across the UK. This small 4-string guitar has been riding high on a wave of popularity of late and has become a symbol of laid back, relaxed and good will vibes.
The Ukuleles are a fresh new young and exciting band who are capturing a musical moment in history. Logan a self taught player discovered his love of the instrument at a very early age when he lived in Hawaii, he honed his skills and mastered the instrument very quickly after watching the Hawaiians finger movements as the strummed. When he returned to the UK he explored other instruments but would always come back to the simplistic and soothing sounds of the Uke.
Fast forward to 2012 and Logan was at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton when he spotted Martha who was performing with her Uke on the ACM stage. He felt an immediate connection, they were introduced and very quickly formed a firm friendship over many days on the beach strumming and jamming with friends. Martha had already gained a reputation as a credible singer and Uke player on the Internet and festival gig circuit. She picked up a Uke after watching her hero Jack Johnson in concert and fell in love with it.
With Logan’s credible and authentic Hawaiian grounding Logan saw a unique opportunity to team up with Martha and a ukulele playing band of friends to form a band to represent the current culture of what is happening today and throw in some new ukulele songs too. The Ukuleles were born.
