An Evening with Unwoman

Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to see Unwoman live through a DJ friend Shawn Gaston. It started as a house party but grew large enough to be moved to Ami Amore’s belly dance studio here in St. Louis.

Unwoman is Erica Mulkey, an incredibly talented musician and singer from San Francisco. She uses a modern electric cello, beats, and looping pedals to create ethereal, haunting and eclectic pieces with antique, gothic and steampunk elements. She often plays small clubs and various cons around the country.

Unwoman played for about two hours with a fun, brief intermission where she happily poured drinks and entertained guests.

Her set list consisted mostly of songs from her latest release, “Circling” (including my favorite “Hunger”) with a couple covers and a “crash-up” which I won’t reveal in case you should choose to see her live. And you should if given the opportunity. She is talented, witty and an engaging performer.

I am hoping to work with Unwoman for my upcoming book trailers. In the meantime, you can find her music at Unwoman.bandcamp.com. Please take a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
