Award-winning songwriter David Ford returns to tour his new album Animal Spirits, his most ambitious record to date.
Having gained a reputation as one of Britain’s finest songwriters and one of the very few with the willingness and expertise to tackle matters of politics and current affairs, Ford presents Animal Spirits, a new collection of songs regarding Economics and the part it plays in 21st Century life. Showcasing Ford’s impressive sonic range from heavy-stomping rock and raw-throated passion to delicate piano balladry, Animal Spirits represents a highlight in a celebrated career.
Hailing from the South Coast of England, Ford has been lauded by press and public alike throughout his fifteen year 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 fourth album, Charge, was described by press as his “best album to date." His records have achieved number one slots on iTunes and in February 2014, a bizarre twist of fate saw him travelling to Paris to receive the French Grammy award for song of the year.
He remains one of the UK's most important singer/songwriters in the eyes of critics and genuine music lovers. Animal Spirits only serves to cement this reputation.
