It's been a defining year for "ukulele hero" (Rolling Stone) Jake Shimabukuro. He's performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Rolling Stone Live (http://tinyurl.com/c6dc7a4), A Prairie Home Companion (http://tinyurl.com/7puket7) and CNN's The Next List (http://tinyurl.com/d2sxopq). On October 2nd, Shimabukuro's most ambitious record to date, entitled 'More Ukulele,' will catapult his career even further.


Shimabukuro is in the studio with Alan Parsons, engineer of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road' and Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon,' working on an album that will not only take him to the next level, but will redefine the ukulele itself. The release will be followed by a 30+ date US tour.

On the new LP, Shimabukuro will infuse his "buoyant musicianship and brisk proficiency" (NY Times) with the rock and roll technique that has earned him the title of "Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele" (Guitar Player). Shimabukuro has defied the limitations of his 4-string, 2-octave instrument with his astonishing covers of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (10 million+ views on YouTube) and "Bohemian Rhapsody."
