Unwoman (aka Erica Mulkey) is a San Francisco-based cellist-singer-songwriter and the recipient of the 2013 Steampunk Chronicle Reader’s Choice Award for Best Solo Musician. Layered with skillful cello, rich vocals, and electronically arranged beats, her music is a futuristic homage to her classical training. Unwoman’s solo performances have been featured at major steampunk, goth, and sci-fi-related events all over the United States. Extremely versatile, able to perform with no amplification, just cello and voice (“acacella”), on acoustic or electric cello, with or without live looping, or with full backing tracks, she also plays the piano, cello banjo, and theremin. She has gained notoriety for her collaborations as well, including Amanda Palmer, Abney Park, Stripmall Architecture, Voltaire, Rasputina, Jill Tracy, Vernian Process, Caustic, MC Frontalot, Jody Ellen, Nathaniel Johnstone Band, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, and Attrition.
Unwoman’s most recent release, Lemniscate: Uncovered Volume 2, an album of looping cello-based cover songs, was the product of her seventh successful kickstarter fundraiser and has garnered praise from all corners. It was released just nine months after her fifth original self-produced solo album, The Fires I Started, which raised 306% of its kickstarter goal. Her first covers album Uncovered Volume 1 and her heartwrenching breakup album, Casualties, were also notable successes.
Unwoman performs solo and as a guest in other bands throughout the US. Unwoman’s solo sets have been featured at Steamcon I – IV (Seattle), Wicked Faire and Steampunk World’s Fair (New Jersey), Clockwork Alchemy/Fanime (San Jose, CA), Teslacon (Madison, WI), Her Royal Majesty’s Steam Symposium (Long Beach, CA), WorldCon (Reno, NV 2011), A-Kon (Dallas, TX 2013), Steampunk Cruise (New Orleans & Caribbean), Victoria Steam Exposition (Victoria, BC), Dragon*CON (Atlanta) and other major events.
Disciple of hard sounds ranging from Industrial to Hardstyle and everything in between. Resident DJ at Ground Zero and Chamber (Bolt Underground), regular guest at Hard Mondays. Frequent collaborator with DJs: Nitrogen, noise, dv8, & Skw33k.
