Edith Crash Short Info

Edith Crash belongs to no one. In fact, her music—sung in French, Spanish, and English—transcends the international origins of this one-woman band by blending them all into one cohesive project. Inspired by dark experimentalism of vastly different artists such as Portishead, Jacques Brel, and PJ Harvey, Crash’s dynamic mix of folk and grunge is as much of a cross-cultural creation as the singer herself. Born in France, raised in Spain, and based now in Los Angeles, Crash’s songs defy genre by pulling bits and pieces from clamoring post-punk, bluesy folk, and vigorous Spanish guitar.

Edith Crash is on the rise and people are noticing. She was recently included one NPR’s list of favorite SXSW discoveries, and described as “bluesy, folky music that is all very dark and strange, complimented by her sultry voice.” Indeed, Crash’s latest and most haunting record ‘Partir’ combines her impassioned, French singing with thunderingly loud guitar playing dedicated to her late mother. Though self-released, this stormy LP was produced by Alain Johannes (who has worked on records with Queens Of The Stone Age, PJ Harvey, and Mark Lanegan). Crash recorded its entirety live as a one woman set on the studios 11AD in LA.

Edith Crash, both in sound and style, is reminiscent of young Françoise Hardy deep in a Tom Waits obsession. That said, it’s no wonder both her music and her likeness have appeared in feature films like the Eli Roth horror film “Knock Knock.” The uniquely cinematic quality to her music comes in full-bodied melodies, dramatic vocal delivery, and a penchant for Western folk drama.

“Intense French blues exile Edith Crash”
The Guardian

“Based in LA by way of France and Spain and somewhere in between Led Zeppelin III and the Cure lies Edith Crash.”
NPR Tiny Desk

‘Edith Crash is a French transplant to L.A. who performs bluesy, folky music that is all very dark and strange, complimented by her sultry voice.’
NPR All Songs Considered (Favorite Discoveries And Memorable Moments SXSW 2016)

“Crash paints honest images with emotional melodies to transport the listener”
Girl Underground

“Produced by Alain Johannes, “Partir” is folk like Patti Smith folk and blues like PJ Harvey is blues.|
Buzzbandla.com

“Alain Johannes’ stripped down production is pitch-perfect. Partir is relentlessly revealing, personal, and cathartic.”
