Julia Nunes plays Auburn, NY and the Finger Lakes

Julia Nunes plays Auburn, NY and the Finger LakesMay 16th 2009  JULIA NUNES at 7:30pm

She’s a YouTube phenomenon. She’s a ukulele-wielding smartass and an incredible talent. She’s Julia Nunes – and she just woke up. Fairport native Nunes has been working her 19-year-old butt off lately. She just got back from a handful of dates opening for piano popster Ben Folds, she’s in the middle of recording her second album, getting flooded with fan mail, dealing with more than 1 million YouTube hits, and being hounded for autographs. Actress Molly Ringwald just sang her praises in a morning-show interview earlier this week.
Nunes is a serious musician with bright blue eyes, bright blonde hair, and a perpetual smirk. She has a knack for turning a phrase into something much more than your standard girl-with-a-guitar lament. Plus she’s got a big, beautiful voice – and a little ukulele. Nunes first made the scene four years ago in the informal singer-songwriter collective that came to be known as Chicks With Picks; five young women who rose above the coffeehouse caterwaul cliché to offer some refreshing, lyrically insightful, and compelling music.
Nunes’ migration to the ukulele separated her from the pack even more. Nunes was already creating a buzz with YouTube videos of her own songs played on guitar, complete with harmonies and clever, though perhaps a little rudimentary, video editing. Once the ukulele entered the equation, people really started to take notice – including the folks at Bushman, a company that manufactures ukuleles in Nashville, Indiana. The Bushman bigwigs urged Nunes to enter the company’s World Ukulele Video Contest. The prize: a new Bushman ukulele. After Nunes’ win in December 2007 the buzz went from bumblebee to chainsaw. Ben Folds was one of those people watching. The college-friendly alt-pop star dug her cover of his tune “Gone,” and offered her the opening slot on some of his tour dates this past spring. At present, Nunes has more than 27,000 subscribers to her YouTube account, which currently hosts 43 videos. Her most recent video, “Balloons,” received more than 600,000 hits in the first four days it was posted.
