Charley of Bird Announced Land sings a song and plays her ukulele.


  1. Is it just me, or does the recent wave of ukulele videos on BoingBoing resemble the South Park episode where everyone starts playing Peruvian pan flutes? I guess if they hold off the guinea pig rampage, it’s worth it.

  2. #1 you beat me to it. I first heard this (lovely) song and thought “Reminds me of Jolie Holland”. Then I thought “Come to think of it Jolie Holland reminds me of Billie Holliday”.

    It’s an interesting trend. Much like the British Shoegazers of the 90’s who sounded like. Well. Just like they were “there”, only in the background, leaning against a wall out of sight.

  3. have you ever considered that perhaps the “billie holiday style” is just the way she sings and not conscious emulation?

    lovely song!
