Sweets is one of the leading burlesque strip tease artists and singer/songwriters in the nation, let alone world. Recognized by legendary American burlesque artists such as Dixie Evans and Tempest Storm, Sweets made history with the release of her album, Burlesque in the Black and was also featured in a documentary with Tempest Storm (release date TBA), among other career moments. Mixing sultry, sexy electronics with charleston, swing and balladry, Sweets is a luscious juxtaposition. With the release of her album, Sweets became the first-ever burlesque recording artist under contract to feature her own music nightly in a stage show.
Sweets debut album, Burlesque in the Black includes "Up All Night" featuring the Dap Kings, "VooDoo You" featuring the Candy Shop Boys, and "Slice of Heaven" as heard nightly in the world-famous variety and comedy show ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. Burlesque in the Black is a collection of songs composed exclusively for Sweets' burlesque journey around the globe, accompanying her on stage every night with her ever-chameleonic performances, each one more outrageous than the last.
