Talent. Chè has it.

Chè is my nephew, the really talented member of our family. He is 15, and writes classical music as well as popular songs.

He has his own YouTube channel, entitled Chemiecta.

I commend a number of his orginal compositions, among them I Love Pigeons, and Laughter, but especially Ukelele Blues:

As Chè says:

"It's about how growing up will leave me deprived of all the attention I have grown so accustomed to. Now that I am actually in year nine, and my voice is breaking, and everyone thinks the year eights are so much cuter than me, this song holds special significance to me."

Brilliant (if his less-talented uncle says so himself).

Hi Peter,
My friend Renn Barker sent this to me. Your nephew is great - funny and smart and amazingly self-aware for someone so young. And though it's probably irrelevant, he made my grim morning a lot cheerier. I'll show this to my year seven son when he gets home from school. I think it'll make him smile.

Thanks Kirsten,

I'll pass this along to Che.

Kindest regards,

Hi Che! You're brilliant, and you know it. Just a word in your ear; referring to girls or women as "females" is something that really grates on a lot of people. It's like they're not really human - like meerkats or something, you know, in a documentary. "The females are basking in the sun etc..." It's the only thing that brings the song down. My son is going to be in absolute awe when he hears this (he plays ukulele but not, ahem, to your standard)
Cheers Helen
