Dent May Begins New Tour in Australia Tomorrow


Mississippi’s Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele are about to experience some magnificent scenery. The clever, oft-bespectacled singer’s touring regiment will lead him through Australia, New Zealand, Spain and France in January and February.

The Paw Tracks artist’s ever-so-slightly-kitschy ukelele pop is pure sunshine, refreshing as a cold beer by the pool, but with better harmonies. “I’m pumped beyond words for these upcoming shows,” wrote May on his blog.

Slightly less thrilling is Dent’s assertion that, “these will most likely be my last tour dates for awhile…” Ah, but it gets better: ” that I can work on some new material.” Yes!
