Meet the Artist: Kristen Ford

Meet Kristen Ford, a singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist based in Nashville, TN. Her live looping show layers beatboxing, harmonies, guitar, and drums and has wowed audiences from Boston to Berlin, and to be honest she’s just really freaking cool.

About Kristen Ford

Adaptability was learned by “kfo” early on, living in 6 states by her 18th birthday. At 15 she started writing her own songs, learning girls can play it all from sound engineer to drums, bass, and lead guitar under the leadership of June Millington (Fanny). After juggling jobs and logging over 100 shows a year since 2008, in 2014 she finally put in her notice to tour full-time. Living out of a van and sleeping at countless Walmart lots, “The Neverending Tour” led to shows across every major city in the continental USA, and tours in Europe and South America, sharing the stage with such acts as Betty Who, Billy Gilman, Troye Sivan and Melissa Ferrick. 2021 marks 5 years since calling Nashville home. Ford has received airplay on Lightning 100 and played shows at The Bluebird Cafe, Exit/In, Basement East and Marathon Music Works. She currently plays with the looping acoustic guitar and cello duo “Evrgrn” and is a writer for SESAC.
