Muze PNote There is no irony in the title of Eddie Vedder's first full-fledged solo album: these are indeed songs performed on a ukulele, an instrument uncommon but not unknown to rockers. George Harrison was a well-known advocate of the small four-string instrument, and Vedder's hero Pete Townshend once cut a lovely little gem called "Blue Red and Grey" on ukulele, a song that could easily slide onto this gently ramshackle collection of covers, re-recordings, and new tunes. To say that this is a minor album is to dismiss its intimacy and miss its appeal: Vedder's self-imposed curse is that he takes everything very seriously indeed, so to hear him without the weight of the world on his shoulders is disarmingly inviting. He has nothing more in mind on Ukulele Songs than singing, whether it's with duet partners Glen Hansard and Cat Power or just on his own, tossing out love songs, something he generally has avoided with Pearl Jam. Vedder never has been ashamed of his bleeding heart -- it's something that grounds Pearl Jam even when they're in full-blast bombast mode -- yet it's refreshing to have a record where that heart is pushed toward the center, beating fully and proudly on his lightest, sweetest album yet. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Artist Overview

Best known as singer for Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder had his musical beginnings in the San Diego funk-rock band Bad Radio. Passed a tape of instrumental tracks played by former Mother Love Bone guitarist Stone Gossard, Vedder recorded a newly written set of lyrics, sent the cassette to Seattle, and the rest is alternative rock history. In the years following Pearl Jam's monumental 1991 debut, TEN, Vedder earned a league of followers with his distinctive baritone, but limited his solo work to two songs with Pakistani Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on the soundtrack for the 1996 film DEAD MAN WALKING. Vedder released his first solo album, a low-key, meditative soundtrack to the Sean Penn-directed INTO THE WILD, in 2007.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.76)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his uke-suffused album stands up because he adapts the instrument to his idiosyncratic needs -- see the Who-style riff on 'Hey Fahkah.'"

Spin (p.106)
- "His unadorned plucking rings sweet and simple, supporting little love songs that rely mostly on Vedder's lovely baritone."

Billboard (p.52)
- "UKULELE SONGS finds the Pearl Jam frontman matching his signature baritone and a touch of falsetto with the wistful filigree of his chosen four-string to record his tales of heartbreak and the hopeful blush of new love..."
