Video: “Oh, Paris” – Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele

So, once again I find my way into a ukulele artist that I know absolutely nothing about.  What a pleasant surprise this video is!  From the tiny bit of information that I've been able to pick up so far, Dent May is apparently from Jackson, Mississippi and he's on tour right now.  Fair enough.

I really like the song writing and production.  Dent May has the pop sensibilities of Trevor Horn, from The Buggles, and he even looks a tiny bit like him.  But, he also seems to have a strong Stephin Merritt leaning as well.  That's fine by me.  Hell, I named my second born after Stephen Merritt, so I'm pretty much a rabid fanboy in that regard.  Anyway, check out the video.  It's charming and delightful!
