Awesome - thanks for posting this in the other link, pootsie!  Great voice/music!

And thank you Unfreakable for the TF!!!!!

WOOOOO I get to look down on liters for 30 days!  Plebes!  Be gone from my sight.

She's got one a them ukeleles that don't sound like a ukelele should. CHEATER.
 
2013-07-05 12:40:19 AM  
Yes, sir.  I like it.
 
2013-07-05 12:46:16 AM  
She reminds me of Joan Baez.  Specifically, she reminds me that Joan does it better.  I'm not saying she's untalented - she is.

The internet is good at many things, but it remains inferior as an instant ukelele-delivery vehicle

Is this where I come to post videos of Kaki King or Chris Thile?

I'd pluck her steamed little juicy bun.

Legal teens are the best teens.

Not bad, but she's no Jake Shimabukuro.
 
2013-07-05 01:05:27 AM  
Awesome.

/Thanks, pootsie, and welcome to TF

I saw Jake Shimabukuro play live in Cleveland last year.  Awesome show, but he can't sing.  He joked about it, and said that's why he's instrumental only.
 
2013-07-05 01:24:53 AM  
Damn. That was great. Thanks
 
2013-07-05 01:30:38 AM  
Not my normal preferred type of music but damn does she have a nice voice!
 
2013-07-05 01:33:35 AM  
She's beautiful and can sing a treat but why does she have roadkill stuck to her head?
 
2013-07-05 02:20:21 AM  
I still like Julia Nunes.

Why not just go with the original cutie with better tone?

I can appreciate that  Zoë Bestel can sing, but jesus ..there are like 3 chord changes in the entire song. It's masturbating with technical skill.

I like The Barnkickers - One Less Tear is probably their best known from last year.

/Have a Flea Lava ukulele. When I play (poorly) it displeases the cats and dog; and I challenge anyone to keep playing when a 9mo old Shiba Inu gives you the 'I am disappoint' look. She's not fond of my piano playing either.

//Could be worse. When I play the recorder, after a while the 'cute' cat (Loki) comes running, jumps up on my lap with both ears flat, and puts a paw on the end, (really. He's done it a half dozen times.) The, uh 'not-cute' cat (his brother Odin) settles for the evil eye and scuttles to the farthest part of the house, not to be seen for several hours. (He hates my ass - I am the 'Taker to the Vet', aka The Evil Man. The only time he snuggles is when wife/kids are five minutes late with his snack/dinner.) The dog (Ms. Ren), locks onto the end of the recorder and books out of the room with it. Sigh.

///The recently acquired (gift from the wife) Pbone is right out. I think I took a year off the dog's life the one and only time I played it.
 
2013-07-05 03:22:26 AM  
Meh. That type of singing is overrated in my book. I've definitely heard better.
 
2013-07-05 03:44:16 AM  
I'm not surprised to see the "meh" comments, but...wow.

The girl is 15.  FIFTEEN.  I think, for her age and experience, she's off to a damn good start.  I like what she's done so far, and it will be interesting to hear what she sounds like/how she writes 6, 7, 8 years from now.

The girl has talent, and she seems (from reading her bio) to have her head on straight.  Talent and common sense seem to be rare in popular music these days.

Charlie Chingas: I've definitely heard better.


Dude, for a 16 year old she's doing great.   Maybe not child prodigy great, but girl's got talent - hopefully enough to get into a really good music program somewhere.

I lol'd.
 
2013-07-05 05:25:52 AM  
I'll bet she could sing the hell out of  Zombie.
 
2013-07-05 07:48:00 AM  
When did biatches singing through their nose shiat become popular?

Monico?  Back to your schoolwork, kid.

/Or maybe she meant Wisconsin.
//I like her voice.  I can't tell how well she plays ukulele

not as good as this girl from Michigan

Grats on the sponsorship, pootsie, and thank-you mods for the green this deserves.

Also, didn't think this was going to turn into a thread about ukes.

"A thread about wha'...?"

I came here to say this.
 
2013-07-05 01:28:14 PM  
must be my speakers, because like... half of the words she was singing were completely uninteligible

I've been a proud liter for 11 years. That's $660 I've saved. I'm going to treat myself to a medium-class hooker.

Fool! You could get 6 low class hookers for that!

The economy has been rough on hookers...  the cost of top shelf tail has gone way down.
