ELERI WARD - A Perfect Little Death
A Perfect Little Death is a whirling combination of Eleri Ward’s two deep loves: the expansive, one of a kind canon of Stephen Sondheim and the sweet, melancholic sounds of artists like Sufjan Stevens straight from the scenery of Carrie & Lowell. Starting from a spontaneous Instagram post in 2019, covering “Every Day A Little Death”, Eleri has now crafted her own niche at the crossroads of musical theater and indie folk music from her original point of view embodied by acoustic simplicity and swirling harmonies. This 13 track album recorded in the closet of Eleri’s apartment breathes a new, unique life into the great work of Stephen Sondheim. Each arrangement is singular, thoughtful, and weaves in and out of darkness and light.
