Eleri Ward: A Perfect Little Death – Acoustic Sondheim
Eleri Ward – the New York City-based actor, singer, and musician – makes her Joe’s Pub debut with A Perfect Little Death: Acoustic Sondheim to celebrate the release of her album from Ghostlight Records, which takes Stephen Sondheim songs and reinvents them with ethereal, acoustic guitar arrangements. After gaining a viral TikTok following, Eleri’s project was released to great acclaim and impressive streaming numbers, and will be followed by national tour dates over the next year.
A Perfect Little Death – called “a harmonious marriage of musical theater and indie folk music, with hauntingly beautiful arrangements” by Forbes and “an incandescent new record, something genuinely new” from American Theater Magazine – creates Eleri’s own niche, embodied by swirling harmonies and her original point of view. At Joe’s Pub, she will offer a preview of her upcoming projects and will be joined by Brian Fitzsousa on piano and special surprise guest stars.
