Applause Performances: Uno Lady on WCPN Ideastream

“When she sings, she sounds like an entire chorus of voices. But in reality, she’s performing solo.

Thanks to the wonders of today’s digital technology, Christa Ebert – AKA ‘Uno Lady’ – is able to overlap her voice in real time, creating catchy yet haunting music that’s truly unique.

Recently she submitted her latest video for NPR’s Tiny Desk contest, and while she didn’t win, her performance stood out for us among all the other submissions from Northeast Ohio.

So we invited ‘Uno Lady’ to our Key Bank studio for our April edition of  ‘Applause Performances,’ live on both 90.3 and our ideastream Facebook page starting at 12:40 p.m. ET.”  – By Dave DeOreo & Dan Polletta

Uno Lady is Christa Ebert, a one-woman ghost choir from Cleveland, Ohio. Uno Lady composes songs using only her voice, effect pedals, and a DIY podium desk. Sanguineous means optimistic, and was written, recorded, and filmed by Christa Ebert.

This song was written during She Shreds Magazine‘s #1riffaday challenge that took place in December. Artists were asked to create everyday and share what they wrote on Instagram. You can see/listen to all the entries on Uno Lady’s Instagram @TheUnoLady 

Free download of White Hurricane

To commemorate this snowy occasion here’s a free download of “White Hurricane” off the first tape release, “I really like genetics but I’d rather have a good time.” You can download this song and others off that album at the bandcamp and soundcloud.

I wrote this song while walking my dog, Flip, after a blizzard. The sloshing sounds are field recordings of that walk, my feet, his dog paws, crunching through the ice crust that covered the ground. The beat birthed the song. Enjoy!

 

Ten Years Ago Today

Ten years ago today was the first Uno Lady show.

It was Coffinberry, Sun God, and Uno Lady at Pat’s in the Flats for the annual Thanksgiving Day bash. I was lucky enough to play with my two favorite Cleveland bands at the time. These photos are by the talented Lou Muenz.

Look at these Coffinbabies!

 

Here is “Orange Floats,” and “I only got 2 Days,” songs I would have performed that night. You can download them for free.

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
