Kidstreet is a Canadian electronica trio formed in 2007 in Waterloo, Canada. The band is composed of two brothers and one sister: Karl Snyder on drums, Cliff Snyder on synth and guitar, and younger sister Edna Snyder on piano and vocals. The trio have a unique form of synth-pop.[1] The band signed with Nettwerk in 2010.[2] Kidstreet have since signed a major licensing deal with Ford. The staccato piano from their song (simply titled "Song") backs the car-maker’s latest TV spot as well as Apple's MacBook Pro with retina display TV Spot. [3] Onstage, the band blends electronic elements with live drums, vocals, guitar and synths. They have toured with fellow Canadian artists Dragonette, Mother Mother, Thunderheist and Rich Aucoin[4] as well as international artists Girl Talk[5] and Health. They performed at the 2011 Canadian Music Week.[6]
