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.

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.
