// Charming Disaster
Brooklyn, NY based musical duo Charming Disaster was formed in 2012 by singer/songwriters Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris. Inspired by the gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the noir storytelling of Raymond Chandler, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they write songs that tell stories, combining vocal harmonies and clever lyrics with ukulele, guitar, and virtuosic foot percussion to explore dark narratives and characters with a playful sensibility. In their critically acclaimed albums Love, Crime & Other Trouble (2015) and Cautionary Tales (2017), they have explored themes like love, death, crime, ancient mythology, and the paranormal. Their song “Ghost Story” was featured on the hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale, and they have toured around the United States, playing bars, clubs, museums, and the occasional historic cemetery.
// Sarah Greene
Sarah Greene is a songwriter, writer and music journalist from Toronto. Her songs are intimate, concise and idiosyncratically classic. Working in warm, soulful folk-rock ballads, Greene examines loneliness, vulnerability, and the tugging poles of freedom and attachment in her songs. She released two recordings as the frontwoman of mid-2000s Toronto alt-country darlings The Pickups before putting out her debut solo album, Toronto Blues, in 2011. She is currently working on writing and recording songs for a sophomore album, collaborating with a colourful cast of Toronto (and ex-Toronto) musicians, including pianist Michael Holt (The Mommyheads), Paul Kolinski (Heavy On The Willie) and singer/songwriter Abigail Lapell.
