Grammy winning Singer Songwriter & Multi-Instrumentalist David Ford bring his 2 man show to Peterborough for the first time on Thursday 14th September at The Met Lounge, Bridge Street.
With four critically-acclaimed studio albums and a live show defined by the British music press as “unmissable,” David Ford is essential listening for anyone who gives a damn about music. His 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.
From raw-throated passion to delicate piano balladry, Ford's music is intelligent, witty and authoritative.
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 last album, Charge, was described by press as his “best album to date.” His new album Animal Spirits is awaiting release and may or may not be available on the night.
His previous albums have achieved number one slots on iTunes and in February 2014, he won the French Grammy award for song of the year for the French version of his song I’m Alright Now, as recorded by Johnny Hallyday.
A multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop pedal, Ford's mesmerising live performances regularly sell-out venues on both sides of the Atlantic.
Ford's exquisite songwriting and powerful live performances ensure he remains one of the UK's most important singer/songwriters in the eyes of critics and genuine music lovers. “Unmissable – 5 out of 5.” The Guardian "One of Britain's best." The Times "Genuine depth and striking authority." Rolling Stone Smart, angry, witty, emotional songs, delivered with raw-throated passion.” The Telegraph “Puts everything into every word.” The LA Times “David Ford is the eternal thrill of a young man going way too far and pulling it off.” Word Magazine “Sends a chill up the spine.” The Sunday Times
