    So this is the band that I thought of when I listened to the OP. The Rutles! And, I think this is another that hasnt made the seasons yet! Shocking!!

    Did CeeJay bring this once??????

    This one just about did me in. You have no idea. If I was brave enough to post the outtakes.......................

    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    I wish I am gifted with a singing voice like many of you here ! Green with envy !

    Instrumentals are welcome, Brenda!!!!!! (Mythinformed has posted a fine one this Season already). Singing is purely optional!!!

    When I joined the Season, I intended only to play instrumentals. I hadn't sung anything in front of anyone since I was a kid. Way just led on to way, I guess.

    Anyway, since you're new to the Seasons, you could post any instrumental you'd like this week. Jes' sayin'.

    Lizban is--or was, because I don't know what happened to her--a South African singer/songwriter who also plays guitar and keyboards. I guess I would put her music into the power pop/hard rock category. I don't remember how I first heard of her; it was a long time ago. In 2010 she released an album on Bandcamp. She created a Facebook musician/band page for herself which she updated occasionally, and even created an official website as many musicians do. She also created a YouTube channel which still has the few videos she uploaded to publicize herself. Then she disappeared.

    The last update to her Facebook page was on March 17, 2014. The last activity on her YT channel was 6 years ago when she "liked" an Evanescence video. Her official website has been long since gone. I haven't been able to google up a trace of her anywhere on the internet, except for those few places I've mentioned. You can still see photos of her on her old FB page and you can see her videos on her YT channel, and you can still listen to the full album on Bandcamp.

    This song is more down-tempo than most others on the album; I guess this was her power ballad. The title of the album is Talking To Myself.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Another phenomenal evening of listening for me. Thank you so so much for the great songs you've brought and the way you've made them seem as if they'd been written for you and your ukes. Beautiful stuff.


    A listen for tonight. If anyone here hasn't heard Ted Hawkins, well, he's really something special. Here's my favorite by him. I don't think I've ever heard anyone bring him to the Seasons.

    <TCK>This popped up in my side bar on YouTube one day...and let me tell you, some of that stuff is zero good, but I saw the capture image...looked at the fellow who was playing and thought to myself "self...go watch that" so I did. Now, I have a lot of music, it is an addiction of sorts, and true to form I am always looking for that next "fix."
    This was it. It was as if a train had just rolled through my living room and knocked me (and Annabelle) straight off the couch. I was blown away. Now sure...he sounds like Steve Earl so it is a no brainer, but there is something in the way he WRITES that is super compelling. His songs are sad. Really sad. Sometimes things are sad and I am sucker for that kind of realism. Anyway- Here is his version of the song, one that I think is well worth watching for anyone who ever loved the sound another person could make.

    And here is my excuse to show you guys his version if you hadn't seen it already. Thanks for the opportunity to play it.

    Nightwish! I don't think I could ever possibly translate one of their songs into ukulele.

    Wow! Never hard of this guy. What a great job he did on a Webb Pierce classic. Very difficult song to sing.
