OcchiMag: In The Spotlight with Singer-Songwriter Cash Crawford
For over 20 years, Cash Crawford has been involved in the music industry as a noteworthy vocalist, songwriter, and entertainer. Growing up in a rural area of Pritchard, Canada, Cash and her sister Sadie would sing every chance they got, even if it was walking down their driveway to the bus, or going to church on Sunday. In 2008, Cash participated in Canadian Idol, making it to the third round just before being televised. After Canadian Idol, Cash went on to travel across Canada performing as one half of the duo ‘Beyond the Mountain’ with Theo Tams.
This project won her the Toronto Independent Music Awards for Singer/Songwriter of the Year in 2012. During this time, Cash also worked as a voice actor and wrote solo music. Her original projects have earned her Rising Star, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Song of the Year nominations. Since moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2016, she continues to hone her skills both on and off the stage. In 2019, Cash released “Stevie”, her single written about her idol Stevie Nicks, with David Tolliver. Most recently, she has been working with producer Don Miggs in Nashville, TN. If you’re looking for powerhouse vocals, Cash is your woman! Despite her ability to emulate the likenesses of softer vocalists such as Patsy Cline, Stevie Nicks, Ellie Goulding, and Taylor Swift, Cash excels at recording strong vocals in the style of Adele, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, and Carrie Underwood.
In her new single, “Save Myself’, listeners get an inside look at the singer’s light and dark sides, but most refreshingly her impeccable honesty. “Save Myself” is my version of acknowledging that, at a time, I looked to others for my happiness,” says Cash.
Through bold and emotional lyrics, Cash, who once felt like a nobody and later accepted her imperfections, found her own self-worth. The artist confides, “After some very deep personal battles, I had to spend time getting to know myself all over again as well as take responsibility for ways I had wronged myself but blamed others. It’s about my journey in becoming my own hero.” Cash’s powerhouse vocals are distinctive, and her ability to empower other women through lyrics is undeniable. Becoming her own hero, the gypsy singer continues to make waves in Nashville as she begins a new self-love musical journey. “Save Myself” is set to be released on Friday, May 27th.
