Charming Disaster is a goth-folk musical duo based in Brooklyn, NY, formed in 2012 by Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris. Inspired by the macabre humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they write playfully dark songs that tell stories about death, crime, myth, magic, folklore, science, and the occult.
Charming Disaster’s music has been featured on the podcast Welcome to Night Vale, and they have opened for legendary cello-rock ensemble Rasputina, goth icon Voltaire, and Amanda Palmer’s punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls. Recent appearances have included Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre in NYC, the Rochester Fringe Festival, Philadelphia’s Science History Institute, the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, VA, Cleveland’s Wizbang Circus Theatre, and the Coney Island Sideshow stage.
Their latest album, Super Natural History, is a musical cabinet of curiosities that unites the worlds of magic and science with songs that explore witchcraft, monsters, and the underworld alongside bats, plants, poisons, and parasites.
“Charming Disaster are unusual, spooky, wickedly talented, and completely unafraid to delve deep into the underworld in exploration of all things lurking in the dark…they have a knack for making the macabre fun.” –Mixed Alternative
