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. Their latest album, Our Lady of Radium, was inspired by the life and discoveries of pioneering scientist Marie Curie.

“Winning, twinning harmonies, and sharp and timely lyrics…bring the past to life—and entwine it with the present day.” –The Big Takeover

“Their harmonies fit hand-in-glove, and their songs are as much cabaret/art rock as they are folk. There is plenty of wry humor afoot as well…The title track…achieves perfection in its simplicity.” –Chain D.L.K.
