In 2009, Crane attended the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California as a member of the inaugural class of the Popular Music program.

During her sophomore and junior years, Crane was a background vocalist for Don Henley[3] and Sergio Mendes.[4][5]

In 2012, she became the first artist signed to Adam Levine's record label, 222 Records, where she launched two EPs, Space and Time.[6][7] Crane met bassist and primary collaborator Sam Wilkes in 2009[8] and he remains the bassist and musical director of Crane's band as of 2014.[citation needed]
