Crawl Space is the debut album from Tei Shi and documents her transformation from the cautious and curious new kid on the block to a confident, self-possessed artist. Written and recorded over a year and a half, the album traces a much wider arc, from Tei Shi’s earliest musical explorations to this, her first long player. Born Valerie Teicher, Tei Shi remembers composing songs as early as eight years old. The now New York based artist was born in Buenos Aires and growing up between (Bogota,) Colombia and (Vancouver,) Canada. Throughout every song, Tei Shi brings a remarkable clarity to the very act of vulnerability, to exposing oneself and inviting others in.
