Uke Heads is part community, part album. Everyone who owns a Uke Head is invited to play and sing on James' new album, Uke Heads.
Here’s how it works:
Click here to purchase one of 1,879 Uke Heads by James Hill. Each one-of-a-kind digital art piece costs $187.90USD and serves as your ticket to join the community and record on the album.
When James records a song for the album, you’ll be invited! You’ll attend an exclusive online workshop with James as he reveals the song and teaches the parts that the Uke Heads ensemble will perform.
Record your part and upload it. Just like that, you’re part of the album. You'll even get your name in the credits!
You can participate as much or as little as you like, but the earlier you get in, the more songs you’ll have the chance to be part of!
So, which Uke Head are you?
Every Uke Head is unique, each with up to 6 traits (eyes, mouth, hat, etc.). With over 170 trait variations and an untold number of possible combinations, no two Uke Heads are the same. There’s no telling which Uke Head you will find most beautiful (each to their own!), but some are more rare than others.
MORE RARE: Two-tone
Note: All Uke Head holders are invited to play and/or sing on the album, regardless of the rarity of their Uke Head!
Uke Heads is more than an album, it's a long-term project that connects people around the world through music. Here's what the future looks like for the Uke Heads community.
