Having explored the undertones of Piaf’s vocals and lyrics, Burger and Wain have created their own unique interpretations of Piaf’s work, using voice and acoustic guitar and the subtle use of loop, delay and effect pedals. 

Exposing Edith charts the tragic life of French icon, Edith Piaf. Experience her life, loves and losses through the songs that shot her to stardom including La Vie en Rose and Non, je ne regrette rien.  

The songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf’s life which are recounted by Burger, who also takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith’s half-sister to Edith Piaf herself.
