 "I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I have it on all the time. I love the Unicorn and the Tightrope songs especially, but really, I just love the whole thing. Miss Amber has the most beautiful voice and the two of you together are just gorgeous! I cannot get those gorgeous tunes outta my head!" Colleen Crawford (Principal of Coorabell Primary)
"I don't know how you could record such a beautiful thing in just 3 days! I like your jazz originals. Congratulations and thank you so much for the present!" Lorenzo Vignando (Ukulollo)


Mullumbimby readers will no doubt be familiar with this curiously named duo, as they've been running ukulele nights in the laidback northern NSW town for the past three years. Former Whitlams / Karma County drummer turned uke whiz Stuart Eadie (aka Stukulele) also plays a lead role in the Northern Rivers Uke Orchestra. Amber Weedon (Miss Amber) sings a selection of Eadie's originals sweetly in their eponymous debut album, and duets with the songwriter on a well-crafted break-up song, 'Too Soon'. One of their covers, Cyndi Lauper's 'Time After Time', might have been better approached together. Miss Amber makes a better fist of Memphis Minnie's 'Kissin' In The Dark', in which she also contributes a kazoo solo. A mouth trumpet break adorns the swing standard, 'Paper Moon'.

Tony Hillier Rhythms Magazine June 2014

"This debut album from northern NSW duo Amber Weedon and Stu Eadie features some charming melodies and assured lead vocals by Miss Amber. The production is stripped back with minimal instrumentation allowing the vocals to come through and the lyrics to be heard clearly. There is a mix here of originals, penned by Stu Eadie and some olde time covers. Highlights include the Tin Pan Alley-like Paris Unicorn, the Moulin Rouge burlesque of Tightrope, the impossibly catchy A Wee Knees Up, the exotic and quirky soundscape Battleship, and the beautifully melancholic Too Soon. Like a fine wine Miss Amber & Stukulele improves with age, or rather repeated plays."
