Yes, I love baritone ukulele, specifically the Kala KA-B baritone ukulele wot I bought recently. I’ve been playing it so much lately that it’s starting to feel weird whenever I pick up my Martin acoustic guitar now! I managed to snag myself a rather nice hard case for my uke for £28 off ebay the other day – it arrived this morning
Other than playing a lot of ukulele, I’ve also been recording and gigging a lot. I played a show in Mansfield the other weekend, that was a lot of fun, and I got a great reception – so much so that I’m playing at the venue (the Intake Club) again in a week. I’ve also got a show on the 8th in Long Eaton, and then lots of Nottingham shows booked for May. Oh, and of course there’s my Glastonbudget festival appearance then too, which I can’t wait for! Check out the ‘shows’ page on my site for more info on my gigs.
Recording wise, I am working on material for the new album, it’s all very early stages, but I’ve got so much material ready I just wanted to start getting stuff down, even though another release is a long way off yet! Here’s a video of me recording some bass for a track called ‘Remember Me’:
And as many of you already know, I’m releasing a cover of Katy Perry’s hit single ‘Hot n Cold’ as a digital download this month, via iTunes, my website & Amazon MP3. More details on that to follow, but for now you can watch the music video here:
Lastly, I posted a video blog to Youtube today, where I talk in depth about some of the stuff I have mentioned here, as well as my September tour and a few other things. ‘Ave a gander at that here:
Hey everyone – nearly time for Christmas! I for one am rather excited, I have bought lots of cool presents for people, which I can’t wait to give to them! Plus I’m also getting a new acoustic, a LOVELY Martin DXK2AE:

My first bit of news today is that I’ve changed my website store from Bigcartel to Bandcamp. Why, you ask? Well, Bandcamp I feel gives me that extra bit of flexibility, plus no limitations (Bigcartel is crippled unless you want to pay 10$ or more a month, which I feel is a bit extortionate.) The new shop can be found at http://marcreeves.bandcamp.com/ , this URL for the shop will soon be changed to www.musicstore.marcreeves.co.uk to help streamline the whole navigation process.
I’ve also updated a few bits and bobs on the website, so check it out at www.marcreeves.co.uk . I’ve added Facebook ‘like’ buttons to most of the pages, to make the place feel more homely for you FB nuts out there!
That’s pretty much it, other I’m now on the bill for tonight’s Christmas Acoustic Rooms show at the Rescue Rooms, Nottingham.
I hope you all have a brilliant Christmas and New Year!
All the best,
