A former classical pianist turned singer, Crawford always had a love of classic American song. After graduating from Wesleyan University in 2005 (she was the CFA's grant-writing intern), she sang singing and played piano in New York City clubs for a few years. Then, she decided to revisit the music of her childhood--classic bands and singer/songwriters of the 1960s and 1970s--and spent a summer writing madly in her unfurnished Brooklyn apartment. Recently, she placed third in the renowned Shure/Montreux international Jazz Vocal Competition. She also spent time opening for Ozomatli and Mike Gordon this fall while recording her debut EP. Her sound is undeniably catchy and upbeat and polished with a vintage sheen--with influences that include the Beatles, Dido, Janis Joplin, Elton John, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder and Jon Brion--that makes Crawford one of the freshest new songwriters on the scene.
