is This a joke?
No. I'm actually deadly serious about this. No irony to be found here.
Why A Songbook?
Because singing is powerful and singing in a group is one of the best social bonding experiences humans have. I think communities that sing together are stronger and more resilient than those that don't. It's largely a lost tradition in the United States outside of religious practice. I'd like to see more of it. Plus, I've always wanted to write a book and this is way easier than writing a novel.
Because ukuleles are cheap and easy to learn. Oh, and fun to play- a true folk instrument. Folk music today isn't on the radio, but it's alive and well and being played by people with ukuleles on YouTube.
Will there be an album?
Yes. The audio will be released in mid April. I just wanted people to experience the songs with their own voices first.
