Sarah Marie Young
A friend of mine mentioned that her niece sang and played the ukulele at her sister's wedding and pointed me to her Soundcloud page. I thought since she was nice enough to point me to the page I'd take a listen. I expected to hear a girl and a ukulele. I did not expect to be completely blown away.
Ever fall deeply in love with a voice at first hearing? I just did.
Sarah Marie Young won the 2011 Shure Montreaux Vocal Competition armed with a baritone uke and the most impressive set of pipes I've heard in a long time. I'm postively intoxicated. Ukulele fans will enjoy her work on Too Late to Say Goodbye, or on Simple Love (video above), but hang around and hear her full range of styles.
I'm cutting this short to go listen to more. Link
