stop.drop.rewind is a progressive/powerpop band from Valparaiso, IN. Members Kris Lohn and DJ Crenson have been playing together since 2000, and, as they’re 25, this means they’ve been in bands continuously for well over half their lives. After relocating to Indiana for college, they decided to scrap the delay-drenched “experimental” format that was theirs, like many others at the time. In a bid to land more gigs, they decided to try a stripped-down, listener-friendly rock/poppunk approach. At the same time, Lohn was avidly pursuing a degree in jazz bass, with heavy study in classical theory. stop.drop.rewind is what happens with 2 emo kids grow up and get jazz degrees.

stop.drop.rewind has released 2 EP’s, “Part of the Whole” (2012) and “Smoke Signals” (2014), and toured regionally since 2012. They have played in 10 states, and opened for The Misfits, Hawthorne Heights, Amber Pacific, Real Friends, among many.
