David Ford & Jarrod Dickenson - 5 March 2014

Artists' websites: David Ford / Jarrod Dickenson

David Ford

David Ford will be taking his songs, himself and a bunch of other stuff all across the UK during March 2014.

On these dates he'll mostly be drawing upon the gorgeous piano songs that he has written over the past ten years, but there'll still be a fair bit of his guitar based looping business going on too, so why not come along; you know it's never less than really good.

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.

As a solo artist, he has released four albums to date, two of which were named "Album of The Year" in both The Sunday Times and Word Magazine. David has toured the world opening for such artists as KT Tunstall, Gomez, Elvis Costello, Ingrid Michaelson and Ray LaMontagne and he has played the UK Latitude Festival, Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits. Ford has also performed on Last Call With Carson Daly and Sun Studio Sessions. His music has been featured in various film and television shows. He has also received rave reviews, The Guardian calling him “unmissable... one of Britain's best."

Jarrod Dickenson

"Texas-born, New York City-based songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson's road worn melodies and lyrics invoke a mid-Western post-war America, when cars ran on leaded gas, television hadn't yet kidnapped the country's imagination, and men wore hats every day. His reflective lyrics, almost like hand-written letters, remind us that human stories of lost love, sudden fortune, and abiding mystery transcend the decades...and nothing is better or worse right now than it's ever been." -Moonlight On The Mountain

“A voice like a young Tom Waits...Jarrod Dickenson's songs are simply breathtaking, possessing melodies many of his peers would give their left arm for.” - No Depression
