Here’s another one of my original songs. It’s called “You gave me a voice” and it raised one particular questions that I will try to answer today.
2nd Austrian Ukulele Festival
I know I’m a little late to the party, but setting up my blog took a bit longer than I expected (been working on it since June), sorry for that. But I still want to do a little recap of the 2nd Austrian Ukulele Festival, even though it already happened in May.Continue reading “2nd Austrian Ukulele Festival”
“When I first met You” – Original Song
I don’t just write deep emotional songs, sometimes I like to sing and play funny songs. A great inspiration for this kind of songs is the amazing duo Garfunkel and Oates.
So here’s a question that I get asked a lot: “Why ukulele?”
And I get it, out of all those instruments out there, why did I choose to play ukulele? To fully answer it, I need to tell you a bit of a back story about me. Continue reading “Why ukulele?”
“You’re enough” – Original Song
This summer I started writing my own songs. This is something that was very intimidating to me, but also something that I kinda wanted to do for a very long time. There’s lots of topics inside of me that are just waiting to come out and be dealt with and writing songs about them seems like a good choice to get it out of my system.
The getting along with others
Here’s another comic that the lovely Planet Prudence did after I told her a little story from my ukulele life:
Fighting the fraud police during my Ukulele Retreat
Last weekend I spent two days in a remote but very lovely little village in Lower Austria for a ukulele workshop weekend.
Elisabeth Pfeiffer was our host and teacher (if you don’t know her I strongly suggest you check her out). I already attended most of her workshops at least once. It’s always nice to hear them again though, not just because she switches up the way she teaches things, but also to make sure that my brain hears certain things again and again and finally starts remembering it. The workshops ranged from basics to finger picking and power chords with a strong focus on Blues.

The broken Ukulele
A couple of months ago I found Planet Prudence on Instagram. She’s an amazing artist and her work captures so much of who I am, that I wanted so support her. Luckily she is on Patreon and I was lucky enough to snatch one of her tiers, where she’s doing a monthly comic with her supporter in it.
Since I am so in love with our collaborations I wanted to share them with all of you.
nikky.and.the.ukulele – two years in the making
As some of you might have seen on my Instagram, this week I celebrated my two year ukulele-anniversary (or ukeversary). But that’s not entirely true. I bought my first ukulele about 3,5 years ago. It’s the purpleish Tiger soprano ukulele, that I still sometimes feature in my pictures (don’t really play it much these days). I bought it cause I really wanted to learn how to play but for 1,5 years I was too scared to do so.
