ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Unwoman (aka Erica Mulkey) is a San Francisco-based cellist-singer-songwriter. Layered with skillful cello, rich vocals, and electronically arranged beats, her solo music is an unapologetically dark, futuristic homage to her classical training. Unwoman performs often in the Bay Area and has been featured at steampunk, goth, and sci-fi-related events all over North America. She has collaborated with Stripmall Architecture, Voltaire, Rasputina, Jill Tracy, Vernian Process, Abney Park, and Attrition. Other influences include Amanda Palmer, Florence and the Machine, Lady GaGa, Siouxsie Sioux, and Beats Antique.

In Spring of 2010 Unwoman released her fourth full-length self-produced album, Casualties. Its pressing was funded by fans on kickstarter, and its release coincided with a huge bump in popularity she received due to a few enthusiastic tweets from Amanda Palmer. Unwoman released her entire discography plus dozens of bonus tracks on a shiny red bullet-shaped USB drive along with Casualties, and it's been a hit with new fans who want to collect everything at once.

Unwoman toured the west coast in May 2010. In July 2010 she busked in San Francisco nearly every day, making strong connections with new fans. In August, Unwoman met drummer Felix Macnee at a meetup for users of bandcamp.com and they began a collaboration called Heavy Sugar Duo. The pair immediately began performing in BART stations, high-end private events and street festivals. Unwoman continues to perform solo in the Bay Area and is currently working on a dance remix album. She also plays the piano, cello banjo and theremin, and crafts unique painted mini hats.

"Undoubtedly, the night's most successful performer was Unwoman. Known for busking in BART stations and side-manning with the band Stripmall Architecture, she took the stage in Victorian garb: lacy blouse, black-widow skirt, tiny top hat affixed to the side of her head. She sang Etta James' "At Last" in a lustrous vibrato."

"Like Kate Bush or Nico, Unwoman bravely steps beyond the word of pop, or anything remotely close to rock, into an uncategorizable, adventurous vision that is nevertheless steeped in history. With its mix and match of classical instrumentation and modern-day electronics, Unwoman does not occupy a specific place or time."

"Unwoman is Erica Mulkey, a singer/songwriter that swims in the chilly darkness of Siouxsie Sioux if she had replaced post-punk guitars and danceable synthesizers for cello and piano. /.../ This is not sunshine radio, but a journey into the shadows. It's one that I am certainly willing to make over and over again."

"You're really talented and I'm happy I can help. Please continue to slay."
- Amanda Palmer

"Stark, politicised electro shot through with crunching noise and acoustic colours."
- Warren Ellis
