Bio: Ansley Newman is a singer in the band Jule Vera, a young female-fronted alternative band from Alabama. Influences like The Killers, Queen, and No Doubt, help the raw, pop melodies and emotional lyrics fit in a rock groove while the ukulele adds a sound you normally wouldn’t expect to hear in this style. Since their start in 2013 they have played with artists including American Authors, Wild Cub, Terraplane Sun, David Cook, and have toured throughout Europe and USA multiple times. In 2014 they also won Best Emerging Artist at Summerfest in Milwaukee.  They are currently working in the studio on their second full-length album.

I love Lanikai ukuleles because they play so well and sound the best out of any ukes I’ve ever played. They are amazing quality and I also love the fact that they have the option to plug in for live shows!
