Who would have thought that Lansing, MI would be a breeding ground for ukulele players? Ignore the fact that I lived there as a tot--I'm sure that had nothing to do with it. Even ignore that fact that I went to school at the Big Ten School in adjacent East Lansing.
But you can't ignore the fact that Lansing is home to Elderly Instruments (made my first uke purchase there, hmmm...), The Fabulous Heftones (Brian works at Elderly, hmmm...), and now we learn about Haily Wojcik, indie chanteuse (and uke player, natch). Her tune, "Nabakov's Butterfly," is a real standout.
Check out her official site, as well as a recent review, and her myspace page. Someday, you'll really dig her.
