My random music suggestion – Julia Nunes
As I’m sitting up here in Blacksburg, VA waiting for Jenn to get back from an exam, I decided I would not only update the look of my page, but also write a new post!
A while back, Jim Duncan, a key part of the reason we’re getting college football in Charlotte, posted a Youtube video of one, Julia Nunes, playing Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend” on ukulele. (btw, i always thought it was spelled U-K-E-L-E-L-E, i was wrong)
Anyway, I loved her voice and personality and was immediately drawn to watch her videos. I loved her cover of Counting Crows “Accidentally In Love” and was hooked. Now I’ve given her CD of originals, Left, Right, Wrong, a few listens and I am impressed for sure. Her lyrics can be extremely truthful and cutting, which is probably why I like her so much. Her sound is, in the best way I can say it, true. When listening, I can picture her on stage, or on a couch in a living room, but definitely not in a studio, and I like that.
So check her out… http://junumusic.com and watch the video below:
Words I mispelled while writing this post…you’re (your), immediately (immediatly), ukulele (ukelele), accidentally (accidently), and from (form). I should work on that.
