Starf*cker CD (September 16, 2016)
PRE-ORDER
 1. Starf*cker
  2. BJ to a DJ
  3. Sweet Talker
  4. California Stars
  5. Crowd Control
  6. Wear You Down
  7. All I Want for Christmas
  8. Mic Stand

STARF*CKER, Folk Uke’s third studio endeavor, is a constellation consummation brimming with what fans have come to love about this duo: ethereal harmonies accompanied by razor-sharp lyrics. This latest effort presents eight new tracks of cosmic clarity.

Starf*cker • BJ to a DJ • Sweet Talker • California Stars • Crowd Control • Wear You Down • All I Want For Christmas • Mic Stand

Folk Uke was thrilled to have the all-star band of their dreams contributing:

Mike Stinson on drums, Randy Weeks on lead guitar, and Marc Perlman ofThe Jayhawks on bass.  Micah Nelson of “Insects vs Robots” played Charango on a couple tracks.  Some obscure artists, Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson, played guitar on several tracks. This might make them famous.

Amy said, “Other highlights include Luke’s improvisational vocals on “Mic Stand”,  and Dad’s vocals on  “Sweet Talker”,  where he drops the singular f-bomb of the otherwise radio friendly song.  This will likely to be the most popular track.  We made a clean radio edit that isn’t  near as good.”

“It’s pretty much a family album.  Give or take some subject matter.  We hope you like it.”

Starf*cker, Folk Uke’s new concept album, features Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson’s ethereal harmonies woven with both heartfelt and occasionally indecent lyrics.

For this release, Folk Uke is supported by the all-star band of their dreams: Mike Stinson on drums; Randy Weeks on electric guitar; Marc Perlman of The Jayhawks on bass, and with special appearances by Micah Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson.

“The official release date of my new album Songs The Jukebox Taught Me is May 20, but early-bird copies are now available exclusively from my website and from Heart of Texas Records. After more than ten albums of mostly original material, I’ve chosen to pay tribute to the heroes and teachers who taught me this music. I’m honored to have some of my personal heroes and friends as very special guests on the album, and I hope you enjoy the new record as much as we enjoyed making it.

To mark the May 20th release date, I’ll be in Nashville that week, performing as well as broadcasting my radio show from the SiriusXM Nashville studios. On Saturday May 21, I’ll perform on the Grand Ole Opry and be the musical host of the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree. And on May 23-24, I’m proud to take part in a TV taping of RFD TV’s Country’s Family Reunion for a special Tribute to Merle Haggard.”
