A Closer Look: Fender Billie Eilish Concert Ukulele
Published on 08 September 2020
Billie Eilish is a force to be recorded with.
The Bad Guy singer is the most talked-about young artist on the planet. At only 18 years old, Billie Eilish has well and truly made her mark on the music industry. Closing in on the last of her teenage years, Billie has accomplished so many outstanding milestones; ones that only some artists could only hope and dream of.
The Los Angeles native became the youngest person to win Album of the Year at the 2020 Grammy Awards. Impressive, right? Well, let's not forget the other five awards she also took home with her that same evening. She has performed on the worlds most iconic stages and at bucket list-worthy music festivals; notably, Reading 2019 where she pulled in a gigantic crowd to watch her captivating set, even larger than the Foo Fighters who were headlining that year. Also, following in the footsteps of the likes of Shirley Bassey and Adele, her track No Time To Die is also the theme song to the new James Bond film. Hurrican Billie really is taking the world by storm. And this is her just getting started!
Just to think, Billie's triumphant rise to pop stardom all started with the ukulele, the first instrument she learned to play. Reflecting on her humble beginnings, we cannot think of a more perfect signature model for her to release. Say hello to the Billie Eilish Concert Ukulele by Fender.
Designed in collaboration with Billie, her signature uke is sure to turn heads, grab attention and make you stand out from the crowd. Known for her distinctive fashion choices, releasing a "simple-looking" ukulele was just not in Billie's nature. It had to be quirky, unique and, well, Billie. This signature release embodies her bold, unmistakable style. This concert ukulele is built with sapele top, back and sides, featuring Billie's eyecatching "blosh" symbol. Being concert-sized, you'll be able to achieve that classic bright sound with a little added depth and richness to its tone. This instrument is also stage-ready as it features a Fishman Kula preamp to allow you to simply plug in and play. So, turn it up to 10 and let us hear ya!
Adding a signature ukulele release with Fender to her CV isn't too shabby at only 18 years old. What will be next for Queen Billie?
Whether you're a huge fan of Billie and want to follow in her footsteps, a ukulele pro or a total beginner, always remember: you can play anything on the ukulele.
