Today the Kristen Ford Band is a 5 piece of some of Boston's brightest young musicians. After some growing pains the group now is 3 women and 2 men, between ages of 24 and 28, electric guitars from kfo and Curtis Killian run the gammet from country to rock to reggae, upright bass from Kirsten Lamb and violin from Kara Kulpa warm the sound on ragers and ballads alike, the percussion of Ariel Bernstien hold it all together. Everyone in the group sings. Everyone contributes to the performance and arrangement of the tunes, but the lyrics and inception of the songs start with Kristen.
Shows are fun.
This summer they will begin work on a new full length record. In the Fall, the band will embark on an Eastern Seaboard tour. Kristen and Kara will continue on a 9 week national tour as a duo.
