Miss Elm is Releasing a NEW SINGLE

RSVP TO THE LIVE SHOW HERE ($10 Entry, 4th August)

Ukulele Folk- Pop Princess is back with her new single that is the epitome of all things re-birthed; ‘Clean Slate’.

Fiery redhead singer-songwriter Miss Elm, known for her angelic 3 octave range and finalist nomination in the Qld Music Awards, has returned to the scene with her intriguing melodies and stories entwining love, life’s journey and overcoming obstacles with her new stripped back acoustic sound.

Her heart-led folk songs are captivating Brisbane’s local acoustic-loving crowds and they’re in for a treat with her new single.

With baritone ukulele, booming bass and layered vocals, “Clean Slate" is about forging new paths, listening to your heart and leaving behind the old to embrace the new.

"My feet are glued to the floor, but I know that my heart wants more" - lyrics from "Clean Slate"

Brisbane based Miss Elm, was born to a plane crash surviving jazz musician and a dramatic actress and thus was destined to creatively express. In another lifetime, Miss Elm was a 4 piece band that toured Australia's East Coast but wiping her slate clean, Miss Elm comes back to the basics in her new solo ukulele project .
‘Clean Slate’ will be out digitally on the 4th of August and accompanied by a live show at The Milk Factory, 4pm, 4th August

Children's Expressive Wellness Workshop a Success!

Both Elmukulele and Essentially me, aka Erin and Joey had a wonderful time with the kids facilitating the workshop.

We started with the Children getting the chance to explore scents and linking them to emotions which turned into a really fun exercise of some wonderful customized perfumes being created for each child having their own little ‘secret weapon’ when it came to harnessing and becoming aware of their emotions.

Next up we had exploration and learning with Ukuleles, songwriting, understanding chords, strumming, rhythms and expression! The kids enjoyed fun games and a chance to creatively let loose with their imagination producing all sorts of interesting stories from unicorns, emotional understanding, riffs and drawings.

A great afternoon and a ball of fun!

Thanks to all that came along.

We hope to do another in the future.

Ukuleles For Cricketers

Jiminy Cricket! In collaboration with Cricket Australia, Elmukulele had a wonderful time this month working with the junior Australian cricket team providing a 2 hour workshop focused on team bonding, discovery and fun. 

The cricket team had no idea what they were in for and had not been told what they were doing, so you can imagine the looks on the faces walking through the door seeing rows of colourful ukuleles awaiting them! We had them strumming, singing and performing in groups within 2 hours and it was a delight to see the team getting to know each other in a different setting, with some hidden talents emerging by the end of the day. 

We ended on a high as the Cricket players were able to take home their very own (travel size) ukuleles to take with them on their journey.  

If you're looking for something different for your team (corporate, sporting or community) it's a fantastic experience for all.

Check out some of the fun below.
