  • 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.

    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!

    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.

  • Songs from the City Earth, Vol. I

    I was invited to collaborate with a stranger and we made a pretty sweet song for a compilation. The One and Only Matt Miller, from Pennsylvania, and I wrote “Hysterical Laughter” for Songs from the City Earth, Vol. I., released by Fringe Sound Records.

    “Fringe Sound Records’ second release, while not strictly an experiment in cross-genre collaboration, is largely an album whose ten songs involve a number of artists who may never have come together to make music had they not been challenged to do so.”

    You can Pre-order of Songs from the City Earth, Vol. I. You get 10 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC …), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.

    The full album is here

    Calling all Cleveland Pets!

    I want to sample your critters. Does your cat chirp, your dog howl, or  your bunny growl? I’d like to use those sounds for a future recording.

    Cool sounding pets  will be featured on an upcoming Uno lady record. The record’s theme is Cleveland-centric, so I am looking for Northeast Ohio area animals only. If the animal noises are included, your pet will get credit for their artistic addition on the release and you will receive a free download of the song your pet is featured on.

    Instructions:

    • Interested pet parents should send a recording (Mp3 or WAV file) to unoladymusic@gmail.com
    • Please include your 1) your name 2) contact info 3) pets name how you’d like it listed on the release 4) what kind of animal your pet is.
    • By sending in the recording you are giving me the rights to use, edit, and adapt your pet’s sound.
    • Tips: Be conscious of the atmospheric noises when recording. It should sound like your pet, not your pet with laughter or music playing in the background.
    • Disclaimer: Not all pet sounds will be used. No pets will get paid.

    The website is pretty great.  How can you resist that saw logo?!

    Not only can you buy everything you need to play the saw,  but also “Front porch favorites!”

    I typically don’t suggest 10 minute youtube pedal demos, but this one is painfully hilarious…. like sketch comedy but not intentionally.  If you listen closely,  the lyrics are intense. I could do without the fake Avril Levin, but the other cast of characters has me cracking up.

    Enjoy.
