The brainchild of Eleri Ward, SUF/SOND is a whirling combination of two deep loves: the expansive, one of a kind canon of Stephen Sondheim and the sweet, melancholic sounds of 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.
Welcome to the soft and speculative world of SUF/SOND.
A Perfect Little Death, the full length debut album from SUF/SOND, is now available on all streaming platforms through Ghostlight Records.
A 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.
