“Genuine depth and striking authority.” Rolling Stone
A multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop pedal, Ford’s mesmerising live performances regularly sell-out venues on both sides of the Atlantic. Think Tom Waits, Neil Young and Randy Newman. From raw-throated passion to delicate piano balladry, Ford’s music is intelligent, witty and authoritative. 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. With four critically-acclaimed studio albums and a live show defined by The Guardian as “unmissable,” David Ford is essential listening for anyone who still 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 voice is earthy, smooth and much more soulful than anything you would expect from someone so young.” –Performer Magazine
Jarrod Dickenson came to his chosen profession later than most. He had devoted much of his high school years in Waco to sports, but a passion for the blues – spanning Howlin’ Wolf to Stevie Ray – drove him to the guitar. His father’s record collection opened his world to the classic rock and singer/songwriter canons, from the Beatles and the Stones to Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, the latter remaining one of his avowed heroes and greatest inspirations.
