now playing:tuesday

ive got two artists for ya on today's now playing:tuesday
up first is:

Eddie Vedder - Ukulele Songs
The Pearl Jam front man is back, flying solo, on this incredible album "Ukulele Songs."  The entire album is written and performed on the ukulele....and dave and i could not be any more in love with this album.  dave plays like a pro on the Uke and i am learning....slowly. 
This album is just plain awesome.  It has the chill, mellow vibe you would expect of a ukulele only album.  Eddie Vedder's voice is still the same deep haunting sound that he is known for....so rich and yummy.  I strongly encourage you to give a test run, if you not sure, on iTunes. 
There are several songs on this album that will make an appearance at our wedding for sure!

next up is:
Ellie Goulding - Lights
This british songtress has been a huge success in the UK.  She recently won the Critic's Choice at The BRIT Awards (2010) as well as the Sound of 2010 on The BBC Sound of 2010 awards. 
Last year she toured with Passion Pit and John Mayer in their British Tour.  She was also the only live performer at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton, performing her cover of Elton John's "Your Song" as their first dance.  Ellie also recently performed "Your Song" on Saturday Night Live here in the States.
Needless to say she has made the hop across the pond and landed with a BIG splash.
Her music is very upbeat and dance-able.  Her voice has been compaired to Bjork, Kate Nash, Lykke Li, and Tracey Thorn.  I really dig her....alot.  Definately check her out on iTunes....go on...do it.

let me know if there is someone you think i should try out and feature on my tuesday posts!!
