Please Support the Panza Foundation

Hello friends. I am fortunate to be a board member of a wonderful foundation. The Panza Foundation is a 501c3 that focuses on underground and independent musicians in Northern Ohio.  November 23 is the annual benefit show at The Happy Dog. The 4 bands that won this year’s award will perform, and we’ll announce the 2020 bands too. There’s a rad raffle with great gear. If you’re interested in donating gear or music related items, please let me know.

100% of what we collect goes to bands and events we help support each year. Our benefit helps raise the vast majority of the money we spend on our projects each year. You donation will reach an audience of nearly 300 people at the event and roughly another 1000 or more outside of the event through social media. Items donated are raffled off at the benefit to those in attendance, and we make it a point of mentioning and drawing attention to the donating entities that night and in promotional materials beforehand.

Listen to the new song – Sasquatch Disco

Listen to the new song – Sasquatch Disco. Featuring field recordings in the woods, crunching leaves, skipping stones, and turkey tail mushrooms as percussion.

Artwork by Michelle Droll, a super talented artist and Akron Soul Train Fellow. To support my trip to France, Michelle commissioned me to write a disco song about Sasquatch. Sasquatch is a metaphor for creating, an elusive yet familiar monster lurking on the fringe. Thanks again for your support. Please give a listen.

Read CAN Journal Article, “Makers: Christa Ebert, AKA Uno Lady”

“If you’ve never seen Uno Lady live, let me attempt to explain. A self-trained musician, Ebert composes songs mostly using just her voice. She’s been described as a “one-woman ghost choir”, which I find particularly apt. Her music includes dream-like layers of her own voice, looping like spells and chants, ethereal tones, instruments and beats all knit together into one lush soundscape. Every time I’ve heard her sing, I’ve had goosebumps – the beauty of her voice soaring, cutting through the air is so enchanting it can command the hairs on my arms to stand at attention.

I’ve seen Uno Lady perform many times over the years – she was the recipient of a CPAC Creative Workforce Fellowship, a Panza Foundation Award, and has performed at many venues and galleries: Transformer Station, the Cleveland Museum of Art, etc. But for the first time, she will be including a film component as part of her live show – thanks to Akron Soul Train. Akron Soul Train is an artist residency program that grants fellowships to provide resources for all creative disciplines – Ebert is the first musician they have supported.  full article
