Edith Frost (born August 18, 1964) is an American singer-songwriter who describes her music as "pensive countrified psychedelia".[1]

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Frost moved to Brooklyn in 1990 where she played in the country bands The Holler Sisters, The Marfa Lights, and Edith and Her Roadhouse Romeos.[2]

In 1996, she moved to Chicago after signing to the city's Drag City label, which released her demo as a self-titled EP. A second EP, Ancestors, followed in 1997.[3]

Her debut album Calling Over Time was released in 1997, and featured Jim O'Rourke, David Grubbs, and Sean O'Hagan of Stereolab and the High Llamas. [4] This was followed by Telescopic in 1998, which was produced by Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema from the band Royal Trux.[5]

In 2001 she released Wonder Wonder, which was engineered by Steve Albini, and the more sparse sounding It's a Game was released in 2005.[6]

In 2014 she relocated to Austin and in the following year self-released the EP Nothing Comes Around, her first new music in fifteen years.[7]
