Discography: LP Shades 2001, LP Nu 2004 - The song “Crave” has received airplay on several college stations around the US. Edie is currently in the studio working on the next CD



Edie Pijpers is a songstress that possesses a unique angelic sound with a hint of an indie appeal. She can easily be thrown into the realm of Bjork, PJ Harvey and Fiona Apple. The hypnotic undertones combined with the allure of her Holland accent and Dutch decent adds to her modern twist on a French song she wrote “Ca y est,” the mesmerizing new age sound of “Crave,” and a soft elegant slow moving ballad called “Where The Wind Blows.”

Growing up in Holland, moving to Paris and then Sydney, Edie eventually made her way to the United States to the sunny land of palm trees and plastic surgery, Los Angeles. It was there that Edie discovered her hidden ambition to be a singer/songwriter. One night at an open mic session at Hollywood’s Highland Grounds, Edie was sandwiched between 40 other singers but sang her heart out nevertheless and was noticed by producer Martin Motola. Together, they co-produced her first release Shades and continued a musical friendship by working together on her sophomore effort Nu.

Nu, which in French means nude, is a deep plunge into the pool of modern rock concentrating on drama with a new age sound. “Ca y est,” is a French ballad that twists in the melodies of a mandolin, violin, cello and acoustic guitar beautifully matching her Dutch accent. Only someone who’s fluent in French can understand what she’s saying, but anyone can listen and love the melodies of “Ca y est.” “Where The Wind Blows,” sweeps away negative thoughts and opens with Edie singing in a hushed whisper supported by the slow moving sound of an acoustic guitar. The ballad deeply concentrates on the ideology of not being concerned with knowing all that much, but personally accepting what little we really know. “Crave,” just read the lyrics and picture a woman gripping the mic tight and pushing out her fervent belief about fighting for the mystery of the unknown that you feel you know. Lyrics: I’m making up the end before the story’s even started/ I wanna comprehend exactly what is going on/ So I peel of the surface of every spoken word/ To feel the real core to avoid the absurd.

Now living in Nashville, Tenn, Edie is beginning a new musical journey by challenging herself to incorporate the cello and mandolin into her music. These two elements will greatly add to the exceptionally distinctive style that she already captivates. From the lyrics in “Where The Wind Blows,” “Like the baker knows his dough/ like the dancer knows his body/ like the ocean knows his depth,” Edie also is in-touch and knows the music she creates
