David Ford: No Apologies Necessary

David Ford.
David Ford.

Having left his longtime band Easyworld, David Ford initially wanted to make demos to sell during his live performances in the U.K. Instead, he ended up spending a winter in his basement studio making his debut album, I Sincerely Apologise For All The Trouble I've Caused.

Recorded without a producer or label, the album (finally released here in May) has since sparked widespread interest in Ford's brooding songcraft. Ford has been compared to singer-songwriters from Bob Dylan to Kurt Cobain -- though Damien Rice is a more obvious and direct comparison -- but he's a unique and exciting talent in his own right.
