Ukulele Player and Songwriter Aaron Lee is touring to support the release of his new album titled The Ukulele Project, which includes 14 original tracks that all creatively and intentionally feature the word ‘ukulele’ somewhere in the lyrics. In the studio, Aaron is joined by the talents of Jeff Bartolini on acoustic bass and Jeff Marion on Piano and Organ. He currently performs both as a solo act and with his trio.

Aaron stumbled across a ukulele in his parents’ basement and was quickly drawn to it for it’s unique sound and portability.  As it happens to be the perfect size to strap on a backpack or a bicycle, the ukulele was always there when creativity struck, and Aaron began writing and performing ukulele songs.  After several favorable reviews, he decided that this unique collection of songs deserved to be heard by a wider audience, and began work on recording the album.

The Ukulele Project takes us on a journey, stopping everywhere from the Androscoggin River in Maine, to the Andes Mountains in South America and everywhere in between.  Aaron introduces Kaylee Ukulele, who likes to “sit between the dunes and play her ukulele”, proclaims that Arkansas should be known as “the ukulele state” and lets us know what happens if you break his ukulele.  We are invited to begin our day by waking up with a ukulele, dance a ukulele waltz, and finish our day with a ukulele lullaby.  The record is guaranteed to make you laugh and will leave you with a smile on your face and a ukulele song in your head.
