Matthew Stead and Robert Ash are a ukulele and bass duo from the UK. They write original ukulele instrumental music with a filmic and ambient feel.
Matthew and Rob were in previous bands A Fine Day for Sailing and The Mighty Stars who were championed by Steve Lamacq on Radio One. Pop impresario Kim Fowley once called them ‘godlike geniuses of pop.’
Last year Matthew, a full time professional ukulele tutor, played a sell out ukulele show at The Phoenix Theatre in Ross as well as performances at the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival and the Ukulele Festival of Scotland. Matthew also wrote a piece for Uke Magazine on Hawaiian ukulele music and slack key.
This winter they are recording their first album for release in 2017 and will be touring the U.K. later in the year.
