The Twisted Tunes of Carla Ulbrich



The Twisted Tunes of Carla Ulbrich

"No need for hard work and no need for luck, if I had a copyright on the word f...!"


Carla Ulbrich has shared the bill with such luminaries as Twiggy the Water Skiing Squirrel, is the President of the Difficult Last Name Club, likes cheese and collects bottlecaps.

Honest, folks, this came from her actual biography!

Best known to listeners of Dr. Demento (she made one of his 2005 compliation releases), PAX TV, XM Radio and USA's Up All Night, Carla has forged a niche for herself in the world as a musically ‘Professional Smart Alec.’

My two personal favorite recordings include the F-Word Song (do I really have to explain this one) and The Force (which is an ode to Star Wars fans, sung to the arrangement of the Mr. Ed TV theme song, which is a real hoot!). Most of the material that comprise her three CDs were culled from live performances at venues around the country, where you can hear her interact with the audience.

Carla, who’s from South Carolina and can best be classified as a comedy-folk singer, is somewhat to the left of Dick Smothers and somewhat to the right of Tom Smothers, all wrapped up together! When I hear her “do her thing” I think of Smothers TV classics like “Chocolate.”

When not touring, clubbing, doing Sci-Fi Conventions (she sings a duet in Klingon and then there is the Force, of course) or recording Carla holds guitar workshops, teaches guitar at various colleges (she holds a BA in Music and is a member for ASCAP) and even has a guitar workbook that is published by Alfred, the number one ‘learn-how-to-play’ publisher of music books in the world!
