In recent weeks I have only come across Amanda Palmer who is formerly from the group The Dresden Dolls but has become a solo artist, or as announced on her blog on Tuesday 26th, may now have a new band called “8 in 8” and have just finished recording a new album.
I have been attracted to her talent and also to her interest in of course the Ukulele.
I have come across some cool videos (below). She is a very talented lady I must say. She has been involved in theater as seen from her musical production The Onion Cellar.
A few years ago Amanda bought a $19 Ukulele to use as a gag while playing Radiohead’s Creep but this developed in to more of just a gag and Amanda fell in love with the Ukulele just like Eddie Vedder, and released her own downloadable Ukulele album entitled “Amanda Palmer Performs the Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele.”
