Kristen Ford is a one woman looping band. For fans of Modest Mouse, Tegan and Sara and Shakey Graves. Each Kristen Ford show is a different experience, as this singer-songwriter plays drums, guitar, and layers harmonies and melodic parts on top of each other in real time, using effects pedals. One part woman, one part machine, this looping artist loves live performance. She carries this frenetic energy into the studio, which is showcased on "Rend & Render''. An apocalyptic concept album which is a snapshot inspired by America, 2016.
