A Ukulele's All I Need
"A Ukulele's All I Need" is a fun, bluesy, timeless tune, in which the singer joyfully tells of his wonderful bond with the ukulele.
"A Ukulele's All I Need" is the new digital single and debut ukulele release from singer/songwriter/guitarist, Jeff Saxon. This smile-inducing song celebrates Saxon's newfound musical connection with his 4-string friend and is in the spirit of timeless American songsmiths such as Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter and Randy Newman.
Saxon's melodic and chordally-rich uke work draws listeners in from the get-go, as does his impassioned, but easy-going bluesy vocal. Yet the feel-good scene-stealer is clearly the song, which even prior to its commercial release has caught the attention of the judges at the 2015 UK Songwriting Contest, who named it a Semi-Finalist in the Acoustic/Folk category (with final results still to come).
Saxon, no stranger to songwriting awards, has won Best Music Video honors at three international film festivals, including the 2012 World Independent Music and Film Festival in Washington, D.C. Those are in addition to dozens of other song contest awards he's garnered over the years. The audio release of "A Ukulele's All I Need" on iTunes (and other online music vendors) has a brand new corresponding music video, filmed in Saxon's home state of New Jersey. It can be viewed on Saxon's YouTube channel, JeffSaxonMusic.
Saxon stated that a ukulele EP or album release is also in the works in the coming months.
