Hey UUers,

Theres this guy on Youtube who is one of the greatest ukulele songwriters that I know of. He uses some super original chord progressions and his lyrics are amazing. His name is Scott Whittemore, or kangatheroo7.

http://www.youtube.com/user/kangatheroo7

Somehow, he only has 70 something subscribers. Have any of you heard him? I figure we all love ukulele music here, and I just wanted to share his stuff, since I think he is certainly one of the best. I think he should be on tour with Victoria Vox or something.

Anyone watch him?

I've got to admit, I didn't see him before, though he seems to be pretty into the Underground, too. according to his vids almost all of them are meant for UU contests...

Yeah his stuff from earlier this year is really, really cool too. I wonder how he isn't one of the more prominant uke players on youtube.

I like his style! Very unique. I subscribed to his channel, and I agree, it's odd he doesn't have more subs.

I totally agree. When I subbed him I couldn't believe how few subscribers he had. I love his song Barista Boy.

Wow, thanks for that. At first seeing him, I didn't think much, actually thought it would suck but he's really great, love his writing and playing. Inspiring to me! Can't wait to get home tonight, it's my birthday and I think my wife bought me a new kala acacia tenor!!!! YAY!
