  • Uno Lady is Awarded 2018 Panza Foundation Grant

    My face hurts from smiling. I love the Panza Foundation and am honored to be a recipient of their generosity. They provide something truly unique and very much needed in the Cleveland music community. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Cleveland’s Panza Foundation awards 2018 funding to four music acts

    “By Nikki Delamotte, cleveland.com

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland’s non-profit Panza Foundation will give cash grants in 2018 to four local musical projects: Hip-hop duo FreshProduce., sludge metal act Pillars, avant-garde pop vocalist Uno Lady and indie rockers The Village Bicycle

    In addition to playing dozens of shows this past year, experimental “one woman choir” Uno Lady became an Earthquaker Devices artist, and now incorporates many of Akron-made pedals into her creations. She was also part of Dark Songs, a week-long collaborative songwriting festival at the Holiday Music Motel in Sturgeon Bay, WI which ends with a two day show at their local performance art theater, Third Avenue Playhouse. This coming year, Uno Lady plans to write and record a new album with the support of the Panza Foundation.”

    Watch the Uno Lady’s Earthquaker Devices Session

    “Cleveland’s Christa Ebert is a one-woman choir. As Uno Lady, she’s dazzled, confounded, and delighted audiences since 2007 with loop-based compositions for voice, found sounds, and effects pedals. Her avant-garde pop tunes combine doo-wop harmonies and ethereal soundscapes with layered and processed vocals, which range from a smoky tenor to operatic outbursts of melody…” (full article here)- Earthquaker Devices
