People often associate the ukulele with happiness, silliness, vacations, Tiny Tim, that sort of thing. But what if your primary songwriting instrument is the happy little ukulele and you’re inspired to write a song, but happen to be seriously depressed?

When Kara Square wrote “Too Depressed for the Ukulele,” she was in a state of depression. As she continued to write the song, her mood lightened and she began to think about how playing the ukulele transforms her mental state. She realized that songs affect listeners in a similar way. She didn’t plan for the song to have a happy ending. The ukulele inspired happiness as she wrote and played.

Kara Square cordially invited anyone and everyone to join the chorus of this sing-along ukulele rock anthem in the interest of crushing depression everywhere. Ten friends from the United States, Italy, and South Australia raised their voices and took the song to greater heights. These talented friends include: TheDICE (vocals and cover art), Jack Burgess (vocals and bass), Mary Burgess, Shannon Root Lee, Rob Walker, Nealbot, Speck, SackJo22, Moira Waugh, and Snowflake.
