Edith Crash | Rasplyn
May 1, 2016 | 8:00 pm-10:00 pm$8
Born in Perpignan (France) during the eighties, singer-songwriter Edith Crash found herself in Spain during her late teenage years where she continued to hone her music sound into the symphonic blend of passionate music we hear today. She produced and released her first EP “Des Mots” in 2010. In 2014 New York-based artist Sokio remixed one of her song “Casser”. The remix is featured in the horror movie “Knock Knock” directed by Eli Roth and starring Keanu Reeves. Now based in Los Angeles, she recorded her last album “Partir” with the producer Alain Johannes (Eleven, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mark Lanegan) at 11AD studio.
“Intense French blues exile Edith Crash”
“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.”

Carolyn is a Chicago native who grew up playing the clarinet and organ. After playing in her high school orchestra for four years, she went on to receive her degree in Music Composition from Columbia College Chicago. Her style is dark and cinematic, beautifully filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and mysterious natural forces. Her compositions bear moments of writhing intensity and flowing release bathed in haunting vocals. Her debut album, ‘Scenes Through the Magic Eye’, was released on Nov. 30th, 2014 via Mythical Records.
