Launching her new Urban Gypsy EP, Call Me Unique will hosting a free party at The Yardbird on Monday Jan 27th.
Showcasing tracks from her 6 song Urban Gypsy EP, Monday’s launch party will be the first outing for Call Me Unique’s new material.
Working with producer Professor F, Call Me Unique’s Urban Gypsy EP was originally planned for release in November 2013. But due to schedule commitments (and there being only seven days in the week) Call Me Unique postponed her Urban Gypsy EP launch until the New Year – available from Monday Jan 27th as a free download.
Call Me Unique is arguably as her moniker suggests. Combining 6 string melodies with personal lyrics, all delivered by a beautiful range of soft to scarred vocals – whether singing or scatting, Call Me Unique has been grafting her way up the ladder for some years now. A troubadour with style and finesse (plus a fair crack at the ‘Busiest Singer in Birmingham’ award) Call Me Unique is someone you should really check out; if for no other reason than to remind yourself what surprises can still be found on the live gig circuit.
Joining her at The Yardbird will be a bevy of acts; musicians ranging from acoustic to rap, Reggae to Hip Hop – conveying their message through a mix of rap, verse and song. Or ‘eclectic’, if you’re running out of characters on Twitter.

But the lady of the hour is Call Me Unique. Returning to “my home” to launch her Urban Gypsy EP, Call Me Unique states The Yardbird is “the first place I was aware of myself as an artist.”
And despite its self titled ‘Jazz Club’ status, the city centre venue has promoted a healthy spread of artists – performing a range of genres and styles. But for Call Me Unique, who has played from the back of a bus to the LG Arena, The Yardbird is “where I first found myself; it would be silly to take it (Urban Gypsy) anywhere else.”
Call Me Unique launches her Urban Gypsy EP at The Yardbird on Monday 27th January. Entrance is free, with the show running from 7:30pm to 11:30pm.
