David Ford is a British singer-songwriter, currently living in Eastbourne, East Sussex. He first achieved prominence with the indie rock group Easyworld, who released an independent mini-album, Better Ways to Self Destruct and two full-length albums on Jive Records before disbanding in 2004.

Ford branched into a solo career soon after, and has become known both for the sheer passion he puts into his songs, but also for being a master at the layered/looping effect he brings to many of his songs. He now has a large following having released two albums and toured extensively in the UK and US.

After making a big impact at The Met in the spring supporting Teddy Thompson, David returns with his full band show.

David Ford’s second album, Songs for the Road, was selected ‘album of the year’ by The Sunday Times,
