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.

Ford's 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 latest 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. Ford ended 2014 with a sell-out tour of the UK backed by a string quartet, playing selections from his new mini-album, The Arrangement. Then in a shift of direction that has come to typify his uniquely eclectic brand of creativity, Ford toured the UK in May 2015 with a show he called “The One-Man Full-Band Show”. This featured Ford playing an entire stage full of instruments linked together by a home-made array of loop machines and triggering devices that helped him produce a full-on rock show played by one person.

A multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop pedal, Ford's mesmerising live performances regularly sell-out venues on both sides of the Atlantic. As well as playing headline shows to his devoted and loyal fan base, he has toured with and supported artists such as Elvis Costello, Ray LaMontagne,Aimee Mann, Sara Bareilles, Gomez, Aqualung, Richard Ashcroft, Suzanne Vega, Augustana, Ingrid Michaelson and Jakob Dylan.

Despite countless plaudits, the songwriter flies below the radar for many, a subject he has documented in a book entitled, I Choose This – How To Nearly Make It In The Music Industry.Yet 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.

Lou Hickey Bio:

Moving on from her success as co-writer and vocalist of the critically acclaimed Codeine Velvet Club with Jon Fratelli, Lou Hickey is now getting ready to release her own brand of vintage pop on the world. With two self-produced EPs already under her belt, Scotland's «Most Eligible Woman» is about to release her first full length solo album on the 13th may 2013.

Championed by BBC Introducing, she already has an impressive independent solo career already behind her, having headlined at Glasgow's King Tuts and O2 ABC, as well as supporting the likes of Martha Reeves and the Vadellas, Suzanne Vega, and Imelda May. Lou is also a key performer at the worlds biggest burlesque club — Club Noir.

A sexy mix of quirky jazz and burlesque glamour, Lou's blend of retro pop perfectly reflects her vintage style, which has earned her recognition from the fashion world, including Glamour magazine, who listed her as «one to-Watch», as well as bagging the Most Stylish Musician at the Scottish Style Awards.

'True Love Ways' perfectly showcases Hickey's effortless Blues infused vocals and catchy retro-pop hooks, to create an album that is fun, yet beautifully nostalgic at the same time.
