Charming Disaster Band

Charming Disaster, aka  Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris, is a Brooklyn-based musical duo whose playful and funny songs tell stories about crime, mythology, love, death, and the paranormal. Think Gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the noir storytelling of Raymond Chandler, and the murder ballads of the Americana tradition. Fun, right?

The duo combines vocal harmonies and clever lyrics with ukulele, guitar, and virtuosic foot percussion. Their song “Ghost Story” was featured on the hit podcast Welcome to Night Vale

They have toured venues all over the US with stops at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater in NYC, Brooklyn’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery, and the Poe Museum in Richmond, VA.  WATCH: Ghost Story
