Kate Crash is a Los Angeles-based songwriter, producer, filmmaker, writer and multimedia artist. In her teen years she made weird art, wrote poetry books, and played in punk and industrial bands.
After graduating from CalArts, she moved to Palestine to do humanitarian work. She then went to Tokyo where she performed her music in surreal street shows and made ridiculous short films such as "Sub: Way of Samurai" with Hiro Super.
When Crash moved back to L.A. she was discovered and cultivated by legendary producer Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire). Launay produced three EP’s for her that were released under Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records and George Martin’s Grand Master. She has also released a dance-pop EP, co-produced by various Grammy winners including Jimmy Harry, Jason Evigan, and Ryosuke Sakai.
Crash now writes, performs, and produces all her own work which is mixed by Ethan Kauffman. She creates in multiple genres and her music has been used in over 26 countries for television, advertising and film.
Crash’s current obsessions include: writing tv shows for Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, 13, Lords of Dogtown); creating a futuristic multimedia musical with long time collaborator and friend Michael J. Masucci; directing and scoring the short, surreal film Messiah of Dogs; and assembling wild fashions that you can enjoy on her Instagram.
