Crash n Recovery's greatest strength, would be as a live act; giving their all on stage; sharing joy, sorrow, passion and sweet melancholy with the audience. The band like to keep it raw n real, hence the use of live, acoustic instruments on stage; upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitars, fiddle, mandolin, accordion and drums (and an occasional pedal steel or dobro)... and they do all the writing, arranging, recording, producing and performing themselves. Since the band started out in 2012 they've been busy touring in Europe, playing mostly at festivals, alongside artists such as Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Ashley Monroe, Leann Rimes, Buffy Sainte Marie, Doug Seegers, The Kilkenny's, Tupelo, Bob Wayne, Ten Years After and many, many more.
Crash n Recovery have previously released an EP called "The Word" and their debut album "Post the storm" in 2012.
