Kristen Ford has been a good friend to Performer over the years (you can read her article on booking your own DIY international tour here) which is why we’re proud to present her brand new, footstomping ode to the cassette.
Enjoy the video below, and read Ford’s comments after the jump. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments section, too!
“If you want a filtered, processed product, there is an abundance of it out there. But with Tighten it Up, you get me – a dyke with tattoos and short hair using my arms and legs to make as much noise as possible and singing about the world as I experience it,” says Boston multi-instrumentalist Kristen Ford, whose fifth full-length album Tighten it Up is being released as a live multi-camera video album – an in-the-flesh performance that best captures what Ford has to offer: “I think there is a lot of personality that can come through videos, which is one of my strengths. Perfection is not,” Ford explains.
