Crash n Recovery label their music as Americana with a mixture of country, folk and bluegrass. Most of the songs are written by leadsinger Linda who sometimes partners up with Roberth in this but all the songs are arranged and produced by the whole band. Yet their upcoming album might introduce a bit of a different sound for the band. Earthier, more folksy and more personal. Taking a step back from the country music genre.
