Salad Fingers! I bow to you.

Be sure to check out Almost Islanders.

Oh.. and check out russbuss415 and ukisociety on youtube, just to name two. They are some of the best. I don't know your definition of artist.. like recording deal? But I get my uke music fix on youtube more than anything.

Ukulele Bartt should be added to that list.

There are lots of performers... check out Midnight Ukulele Disco and you will find a pretty big list of performers, many of them playing rock and other styles on uke.

You're in the UK so you must have heard of Ivor Biggun.

Mind you, he does play the Ukulele and he is an artist but he is not necessarily a Ukulele Artist!!

Cheers,
Ian.
