"The Ukulele Project" is the debut album from ukulele songwriter Aaron Lee. It includes 14 original tracks that all creatively and intentionally feature the word ‘ukulele’ somewhere in the lyrics. Lee is joined by the talents of Jeff Bartolini on acoustic bass and Jeff Marion on Piano and Organ, who as a trio, create a unique sound that is an upbeat combination of folk, bluegrass and country.
The album takes us on a journey, stopping everywhere from the Androscoggin River in Maine, to the Andes Mountains in South America and everywhere in between. Lee 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. The album is available for purchase at all shows and on iTunes and CD Baby.
