Julia Nunes: YouTube Ukelele Superstar

In January, I made a little ukelele post featuring a fun rendition of “Build Me Up, Buttercup” by a YouTube user named jaaaaaaa.

Turns out? Her name is Julia Nunes, and she’s done pretty well for herself. She’s played with Ben Folds, toured around a few spots in the UK, and is slated to perform at Bonnaroo.

I love seeing things work out well for folks, through YouTube. I guess it’s because there’s so much schadenfreude online, it’s nice to see something positive for a change.

More of her songs/videos can be seen on her YouTube page.

  1. I’ve actually become a decent fan of Julia and Danielle Ate the Sandwich since your posting on that. Good stuff.
