DAVID FORD+ SPECIAL GUESTS
With four critically-acclaimed studio albums and a live show defined by The Guardian as ‘unmissable’, David Ford is essential listening for anyone who gives a damn about music.
Ford’s songs combine Americana, English melodicism and a touch of rock ‘n’ roll, tied together with finely-crafted lyrics. His emotive stories of social commentary, politics and love in a world going to hell are powerful, engaging and hark back to an era of classic songwriting. Think Tom Waits, Neil Young and Randy Newman.
Hailing from the South Coast of England, Ford has been lauded by press and public alike throughout his decade-long solo career. His debut album, I Sincerely Apologise For All The Trouble I’ve Caused, was included in both The Times and Word Magazine‘s top ten albums of the year and his latest record, Charge, was described by press as his ‘best album to date’.
A multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop pedal, Ford’s mesmerising live performances regularly sell-out venues on both sides of the Atlantic. As well as playing headline shows to his devoted and loyal fan base, he has toured with and supported artists such as Elvis Costello, Ray LaMontagne, Aimee Mann, Richard Ashcroft, Suzanne Vega, Ingrid Michaelson, Newton Faulkner and Simone Felice.
