About Uni:
Uni is Heather Marie Ellison.

Uni and her Ukulele began its 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 EPs, 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.”

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 90s, she 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’.”
