Four strings and a favorite chocolate bar: that's all James Hill–“possibly the best ukulele player in the world” (Waikato Times)–and Anne Janelle–“a cellist of true beauty” (Ottawa Citizen)–had in common when they first met. It was more than enough. Today, they're an award-winning, world-class singer-songwriter-ukulele-cello duo.
James grew up playing folk, jazz and blues on his ukulele while Anne was exclusively a classical cellist. But the pair’s differences quickly became their biggest asset. The uke is high, the cello is low; the uke plays short notes, the cello long bow strokes; the uke is all about strumming while the cello radiates melody.
Like shadows and light in an old photograph, these contrasts are complementary.
