Logan Award for Excellence in Comedy Music!

Carla Ulbrich, a Somerset, New Jersey-based comical singer-songwriter, was recently chosen as the winner of the 2016 Logan Award for Outstanding Parody Song for “Cheek To Cheek.” Set to the tune of Irving Berlin’s song of the same name, this “Cheek To Cheek” is a witty commentary on cosmetic improvements (plastic surgery, botox and steroid injections) and appears on Totally Average Woman, Ulbrich’s newly released album of all humorous material.  In addition to “Cheek To Cheek,” the CD contains six more parodies, five original songs and a ridiculous bonus track.
 
The Logan Whitehurst Memorial Awards for Excellence in Comedy Music (Logan Awards) are presented annually by The Funny Music Project to winners in three categories: Outstanding Parody Song, Outstanding Original Comedy Song, and Outstanding Comedy Music Video. Ulbrich also co-wrote the Outstanding Original Comedy Song, “I Dropped My Phone in the Toilet,” with Steve Goodie and Jenny Casey, while They Might Be Giants won in the video category for “All the Lazy Boyfriends.”
 
A Clemson, South Carolina native, Ulbrich has performed at the Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, South Florida and Philadelphia Folk Festivals and at such notable venues as Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic, Nashville’s Bluebird Café and New York City’s The Bitter End, among others.
