KRISTEN FORD BAND - "An unexpected, eye catching blend music is a fusion of varying elements, like heavy guitars and dance beats creates music that speaks to everyone: gay, straight, black, white, whatever. [Kristen Ford] strives to be a new breed of rock."- Windy City Times
Kristen Ford is very energetic. Her bandmates are quite good and hold the whole sound together which frees her up to get very sweaty, at times run around off stage, other times make up songs on the spot, squeaks, inappropriate banter and very rarely, just play some songs.
Kristen and her band have played with artists such as Sonya Kitchell, Matthew Santos, Erin Mckeown, Naia Kete, The Pussy Pirates, The Rex Complex, Abbie Barrett, Bear Motor, Baker London and many more,
In venues such as Church, The Middle East, TT the Bears, (Boston) The Empty Bottle, The Red Line Tap, Reggies (Chicago) Arlene's Grocery, Spike HIll (NYC), Café Coco, Windows (Nashville), Black Water Hatties, Flying Monkey (Hunstville) 400 Bar (Minneapolis) The Frequency (Madison) Club Havana, Bernies (Columbus) The Shadow Lounge (Pittsburgh) The LAB (Asheville) The Space (Detroit) Art Bar (Milwaukee) Raven Lounge (Philadelphia) Wonderroot (Atlanta) BigFoot (Portland OR), Landsdown Pup (Austin) Club Q (Reykjavik Iceland) Parihaka Peace Festival (Auckland, New Zealand) Hudson Valley Pride Festival, Southern Maine Pride Fest, RockerGrrrl, Rockfest, and too many fond memories to mention.
MATTHEW SANTOS - "out-of-this-world voiceabundance of soul." -The Cornell Daily Sun
"He takes a driving beat and a pounding acoustic guitar and kneads it into something affirming and urgent." -The Baltimore Sun
Matthew Santos has established himself as one of the most exceptional talents to emerge from the Chicago music scene in decades. With a voice consistently compared to that of the late Jeff Buckley and likened to a male version of Adele, he has been the subject of praise from such artists as Kimbra, Eddie Vedder, and John Legend. His highly acclaimed collaborations with Lupe Fiasco for which he received two Grammy nominations, have served to broaden international awareness of Santos whose own style is a unique, homegrown hybrid touching on alternative/indie-rock/soul and folk genres. The Chicago Sun-Times recognized Santos as an artist who is "organic and soulful and moody, full of interesting musical ideas and dripping with serious vocal talent."
BESS ROGERS: Brooklyn-based indie artist Bess Rogers has had a lifetime fascination with evolution. But it wasn't until 4 years of nonstop touring and three independent releases that the science of life began to creep its way into her songs. Her new record, aptly titled Out Of The Ocean, is a bold step forward for Rogers, and one that she has been eager to take.
