David Ford

Award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist David Ford returns to the road in support of his eighth solo studio album, Love and Death.

He first achieved prominence with the indie rock group Easyworld, who released Better Ways to Self Destruct and two full-length albums on Jive Records before disbanding in 2004.

As a solo artist, Ford has released six albums to date, two of which were named “Album of The Year” in both The Sunday Times and Word Magazine. His 20 year career has been marked by eclecticism and a refusal to pick a lane. Every tour is a reinvention, an opportunity to put something incredible on the stage, an approach that has led The Guardian to call his live show “unmissable”.

This October sees Ford continue to smudge the lines of genre, performing his new album and career highlights backed by imperious jazz quartet, Albuca. This collaboration began in 2019 with the recording of Love and Death, a collection of dark and beautiful musical moments that showcase the talents of some of Britain’s finest instrumentalists and a songwriter at the peak of his powers.
