Recording at Earthquaker Devices

Yesterday I was fortunate to record a new song at Earthquaker Devices with the rad pedals they let me try out. The pedals are magical and the staff is super talented and incredibly nice. Songs are pouring out of me now that I have these awesome new babies. I’ll share the song and video when its up!

MUSIC MONDAY: Listen to Uno Lady’s newest song up on Soundcloud

“Washed Away” was recorded by Christa (Uno Lady) Ebert January 2017. Song written by Christa Ebert, Anna Jo, and Marcus Trana during Dark Songs at the Holiday Music Motel, Sturgeon Bay, WI, October 2016.

The song is about the sea level rising and the islands and coastal habitats that are lost due to climate change.

The Holiday Music Motel is a magical place that  invites songwriters from around the world. Musicians travel to Sturgeon Bay to take part in the three songwriting festivals at the Holiday Music Motel (February’s ‘Love On Holiday,’  is happening this week! June’s ‘Steel Bridge Songfest’ and October’s  ‘Dark Songs’).  You can listen to the songs recorded at the Motel, year round at www.steelbridgeradio.com/listen

For the last three years I have participated in Dark Songs and a favorite from the last trip is “Washed Away.” It was co-written by myself, Anna Jonson who is a Wildland Firefighter and simultaneously the nicest and very badass, and Norway native Marcus Trana, recording engineer, entrepreneur and all around swell guy.

The version of “Washed Away” that we recorded together will be out in October.  I’ll be sure to share it :)

Thanks for having me, Akron

I had a great time playing at Hive Mind in Akron. Big thanks to HolyKindOf for playing and the rad folks at Hive Mind for having me.

If you haven’t already, check out Like a Villain (Portland), who also performed that night. It was the first show I have played (in 9 years!) where I was matched with a similar act (she loops operatic vocal).  It was mesmerizing.

Next Uno Lady show is this Thursday, November 17 at Happy Dog West.

I appreciate everyone’s birthday wishes. Pardon the delay in my gratitude. One of the most special things I got on my birthday were these galaxy Uno Lady prints from my cousin, Jessica Ebert.

If you’ve hung out with me in the past few weeks I probably forced you to look at a picture of this cake she made…ITS MAGICAL! She really is the best! Check out her blog here.

Last year, I received a magical gift when the Universe blew a balloon into my yard and my rose bushes caught it for me.

Awe! My garden caught this stragler balloon for my birthday. No joke! Thank you roses!

Watch the Video For “Bikini Weeding,” A Song By UNO LADY- Cleveland’s One-Woman Ghost Choir

Check out Dangerous Mind‘s coverage of the video here!

At last, I can share with you my creation! Lauren, Teresa and I have worked very hard on this video and I am proud to present “Bikini Weeding” for your viewing enjoyment.  Special thanks to the Rodemann’s for their guest appearance in the video.

Nothing brings me more joy than digging in the dirt, connecting to nature, and watching tiny seeds transform into healthy food. Thanks for watching! Don’t forget to subscribe!

About the video

Filmed in Uno Lady’s backyard “Bikini Weeding” features time lapses of growing plants, villainous weeds, and the artist herself, hard at work growing her own food. “Bikini Weeding” was directed and co-produced by Uno Lady with Lauren Voss and Teresa Crockett of Sugarbowl Creative.

You can buy the album at the Uno Lady shop or online at CD Baby.
