David Ford to play Hare & Hounds

November 21, 2012 in News

Seven years into his career, David Ford will release his fourth solo album ‘Charge’ in March 2013, recorded by NY-based studio wizard James Brown (often found making Grammy winning albums with the likes of Foo Fighters). In the time honoured tradition of the troubadour, he will tour the backside off of it throughout the UK, taking in Birmingham’s own Hare & Hounds on 4th April 2013.

‘Charge’ reflects the familiar musical and lyrical themes of Ford’s work: a healthy shot of Americana, a sprinkle of English melodicism and a touch of rock n roll, all tied together with finely crafted lyrics that observe Ford’s estrangement from the world of modern rock and his commitment to keeping it just that way.
