with special guests Michele Stodart
and JP Ruggieri
Award-winning songwriter David Ford tours the UK this summer with his forthcoming album Animal Spirits. Recorded in the US with producer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon), Ford’s fifth solo album perfectly showcases his rare ability to glide between musical styles without compromising authenticity or commitment. This collection of songs continues his fine tradition of classic lyric and melody songwriting, eloquent social commentary and skilled manipulation of the heartstrings.
Having gained a reputation as one of Britain’s finest live performers, Ford has assembled a stellar band of international talent to play songs from his biggest-sounding record to date as well as highlights from his acclaimed catalogue.
Michele Stodart who is a solo artist as well as bassist, vocalist and co-songwriter with the much-loved, Mercury-Prize-nominated and double platinum sellers The Magic Numbers.
JP Ruggieri is a New York based singer song writer.
