Steampunk Spotlight: Unwoman
Back in April at the Oklahoma City Steampunk Expo, I had the great pleasure of seeing Unwoman perform. She was absolutely captivating, and I’m thrilled that I will get to see her perform again this weekend at the Emerald City Steampunk Expo in Wichita, KS.
Her rendition of Wham’s “Careless Whisper” is hauntingly beautiful and extremely moving. As I was passing by the main stage at OK Steampunk Expo, I heard this remarkable woman play. The mixture of her voice and the soothing sound of her cello stopped me, and I stood there captivated. As she sang “Careless Whisper,” tears welled up in my eyes at the beauty of the moment. Truly a special performer.
Please check out her music and support this talented artist.
I truly hope that I get a chance to talk with Erica this weekend at Emerald City, perhaps we can share a drink and talk about girl things. That would be simply splendid.
From her website:
