More About the OUS Project:
The Original Ukulele Songs Platform started in November 2016 initially with a Facebook page to gauge interest in people wanting to write and perform original ukulele based songs. Within 6 months the FB page had over 1000 members and this has risen to over 2500 members from literally all over the globe.
I then set up www.originalukulelesongs.com where artists can apply have an individual page to showcase their material. We now have 55 artists listed here including Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Manitoba Hall, Victoria Vox, The Small Change Diaries, Victoria Vox and Zoë Bestel.
The next phase for OUS is to showcase live platforms for OUS artists. I am delighted that GNUF 2017 will be the first ever live international platform for OUS with a terrific array of talent. GNUF is a natural partner for OUS as we both share a love for creative original new music.
