    Brittni Paiva At 21 years of age, Brittni Paiva (pi –VAH) is the preeminent female `ukulele player from Hawaii. Affectionately referred to as the `ukulele darling, Brittni is a native of Hilo, on the Big Island. She is a multi-award winning, multi-instrumentalist with a prodigious gift who is wholeheartedly embraced by a global audience Over the past six years Brittni has self-produced three award-winning CDs. She took home the prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Most Promising Artist of the Year in 2005 in support of her debut release, Brittni x 3. Her sophomore release, Hear, won `Ukulele Album of the Year in the Hawaii Music Awards, otherwise known as Hawaii’s People’s Choice Awards in 2006. This CD was also nominated for the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Best Instrumental Album of the Year and Favorite Entertainer of the Year. Her third album in as many years, simply titled, Brittni, won `Ukulele Album of the Year in the Hawaii Music Awards in 2007 and was nominated for two Na Hoku Hanohano Awards from the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts. Victoria Vox Vox, who lives in Baltimore, MD now, has been averaging 125+ dates for over 6 years, performing at a mixed bag of venues and festivals across the country, Europe, and Canada. Not that Vox is the only current artist to slip in a little ukulele -- but, the singer-songwriter is dedicated to the tiny instrument, and maybe, just maybe helping make it cool again. She is also known to employ the “mouth trumpet” which she was invited to perform on the Jay Leno Show (Meal or No Meal, Dec. 2009). She has shared the stage with and opened for Jackson Browne, Jane Weidlin (the GoGo's), Mindy Smith, Tom Chapin, and Jake Shimabukuro. Currently, Vox is working on a new album, due out in the spring of 2010. www.brittnipaiva.com www.victoriavox.com
