With four critically-acclaimed studio albums and a live show described by The Guardian as ‘unmissable’, David Ford is essential listening for anyone who cares about music.

Ford's songs combine Americana, English melodicism and a touch of rock 'n' roll, tied together with finely-crafted lyrics. His emotive social commentary, politics and stories of 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.

From raw-throated passion to delicate piano balladry, Ford's music is intelligent, witty and authoritative. His debut album was included in both The Times and Word Magazine's top ten albums of the year, he consistently hits the top of iTunes charts, and in 2014 he received the French Grammy Award for song of the year.

A multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop pedal, Ford's mesmerising live performances regularly sell-out venues on both sides of the Atlantic, while as a support act he has toured with the likes of Elvis Costello, Ray LaMontagne, Aimee Mann, Richard Ashcroft and Suzanne Vega.
