Uni and her Ukelele began it’s life in 2004 as an outlet for an already accomplished singer to self publish and perform original work independently. Since that time Uni has released three full albums, numerous E.P’s, collaborations and a covers album ranging from lo -fi indie pop to melodic strings to rock. Uni’s sound has been described as eclectic, infectious pop and not your usual Ukulele fare.

Recipient of the SF Weekly Music Award, Uni has toured all over the USA and Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and has been the subject of celebrated festival Documentary ”The Mighty Uke” Often described as the love child of Rainbow Brite and Mr. T, Uni is possessed of the uncanny ability to stare wanly out the window and simultaneously kick you in the balls…. Ding!

Heather Marie Ellison began singing in nightclubs in a country band at the age of fifteen (grandpa chaperoned). Then later, during the Swing resurgence of the 90′s, sang in a Northern California swing band by the name of The Savoy Swingers. She caught the eye of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Johnny Otis and was soon back up singing in the Johnny Otis R&B Revue, opening up for such legendary artists as Koko Taylor, Tower of Power, The Four Tops, Ray Charles and James Brown.

So confident was Johnny Otis of Ms Ellison’s potential, he produced a solo album with her entitled Heather Marie With The Johnny Otis Band, Got My Mojo Workin‘
During the early 2000′s Heather Marie worked at all three locations of legendary independent record store Amoeba Music before hanging up her name tag to tour the world as Uni and Her Ukelele.

Having accomplished the impossible task of making New Zealanders Oil Wrestle, making cocktail hats for the rich and famous and making it through Canadian Customs, the future is wide open for Heather Marie as she travels the globe dancing with friends, eating increasingly exotic foods and writing music. New projects are on the horizon for the betterment of us all.

Peter Delaney is a Limerick born songwriter who draws inspiration from traditional songs and old folk music as well as the lilting melancholy of vintage Hawaiian recordings. In 2007 Peter self-released his debut mini album ‘Duck Egg Blue’, which has received regular airplay in Ireland, England, Holland and Australia and will be re-released through Deadslackstring Records in June 2011. He released a limited live CD through Apolloaan Recordings in 2010 and is currently recording a new full length album to be released later this year.

In November 2008 Peter joined Oscar winners The Swell Season as support act on the Irish leg of their European tour and was invited by Donal Dineen to play the main Body & Soul stage at Electric Picnic the same year. In 2009 he played the VPRO Dwars festival and radio session in Amsterdam with other radio sessions including Donal Dineens Midsummer Sundays on Today fm and Blue Of The Night on Lyric fm.

Peter has toured extensively throughout Ireland, England and Norway and has played alongside many popular folk musicians including A Hawk and a Hacksaw (USA), Phosphorescent (USA), Alasdair Roberts (Scotland), Alela Diane (USA), Mariee Sioux (USA), Steffen Basho-Junghans (Germany), Jozef van Wissem (Netherlands), Sharon Krauss (UK), Thinguma*jigSaw (Norway), C Joynes (UK), Cian Nugent (Ireland).
