Loop Rider is the newest project from the American musician and artist Carl Smith. When Loop Rider performs live he uses a drum machine, bass synthesizer, loop pedal, vocal FX processor, a harmonica, and a variety of guitar effects that can even allow a normal electric guitar to sound like an electronic element. The foundation of each track is played from the drum machine and bass synth but the vocals, harmonica, guitar, and loops are all done live each time. Smith often plays solo or sometimes with a drummer on a e-drum kit.

As far as the style is concerned... its a mash up of Dance, Indie, and Reggae. Think: Gorillas, The Rapture, The Police, Metronomy, Santo Gold, and then just throw some dirty Berlin electronic shit in there and you'll get the picture!
