Since forming in 2007 in New York City, The Electric Mess have developed into an exciting and tight rock n' roll band, led by an androgynous and dynamic lead singer, Esther Crow, with Dan Crow (guitar), Oweinama Biu (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Derek Davidson (bass), and Alan J. Camlet (drums).
The Huffington Post: "The Electric Mess entertain as a unit and still keep the music heads happy with their solid musicianship, a "too cool for words" repertoire, and one of the most electrifying front men I have ever seen."
They released their self-titled debut album in early 2010, featuring the songs "You've Become a Witch," "Trash Talkin' Woman," and "She Has a Funny Walk." It received excellent reviews and all 13 tracks have been heard on radio stations both in the U.S. and internationally, including Rodney Bingenheimer's "Rodney on the ROQ" (KROQ, Los Angeles),"Little Steven's Underground Radio Show" (Sirius/XM), and Nights with Alice Cooper" (syndicated radio show).

"You've Become a Witch" was featured in the British feature Mod thriller, "Blood and Carpet," released in 2015, (watch the trailer featuring The Electric Mess).
Their second album, "Falling Off the Face of the Earth," was released June, 2012 on Groovie Records (Portugal, CD/LP), with the songs "He Looks Like a Psycho," "The Girl With the Exploding Dress," and “I Didn’t Miss You at All.” Again all 13 songs received radio airplay worldwide and the album received excellentreviews.
