Sweet Soubrette, a melodic, ukulele-powered indie rock band based in NYC, will perform an acoustic concert at Dream Away Lodge in Becket on August 18. WBRS (Brandeis University radio) says: “Sweet Soubrette’s music is modern and sonically diverse…talented instrumentalists and tightly sung melodies make for a really exciting listen.”

Sweet Soubrette will be touring the Northeast U.S. in support of their latest release, “What’s My Desire?” a 4-song EP that previews the third album now underway. The EP's dark and passionate title track was inspired by the book Henry and June by Anaïs Nin, a work based on Nin's diaries when she was becoming a serious writer and romantically involved with author Henry Miller. Love, art and ambition collide in this powerful song.

Sweet Soubrette features the songwriting, vocals, and ukulele of Ellia Bisker, whose dark, edgy love songs have been honored with three ASCAPlus awards. Sweet Soubrette has appeared in variety shows and cabarets, at rock clubs and on singer-songwriter stages, in cultural festivals and comedy shows, circus shows and art galleries, puppet shows and performance art installations, and has toured in Italy and France.

The Philadelphia Inquirer has called Sweet Soubrette's music "sensational...dark vaudeville-pop." Worcester Magazine described it as “indie rock meets cabaret.” Time Out New York dubbed it "at once sweet and sassy, celebrating reckless behavior with a charmed wink." The Deli Magazine has praised Sweet Soubrette's "rock star command and intelligently crafted music."
