Editors’ Notes

This British roots rocker has been out on the road for years, having left the British indie rock group Easyworld in 2004 to pursue his own solo voice. It's for the best, since Ford's music relies on delicate touches that are best controlled when a performer has no obligations to give his bandmates work. A stirring, heartbroken ballad such as "Isn't It Strange?" might not survive in a full-group version. The same goes for the delicate piano ballad "Philadelphia Boy," where the Brit finds a home in America. The nasty blues romp of "Let It Burn" nails down greasy guitars. "Pour a Little Poison" works off a gravity-free rhythm that should be a surefire party favorite. "Moving On" finds space between Ryan Adams and Jackson Browne with its easy accessibility. The piano-based "Throwaway," another heart-tugging ballad, nearly ends the album. But then Ford throws in the surging Irish-influenced rocker "Every Time" to complete things on a fighting note.

Customer Reviews

Another solid album

If you have not experienced the passionate, emotional roller coaster of a David Ford album, then this is great place to start. And if you're already a Ford die hard, you won't be disappointed by Charge.

Another lovely album by a brilliant songwriter.

I was lucky enough to have a friend introduce me to the talent that is David Ford a couple of years ago and was immediately hooked. Since then I've loved everything he's released. Charge is another great album full of catchy songs and powerful lyrics. Whether you're in the mood for an up-tempo tune like 'Pour a Little Poison' (which will have you singing "pour a little poison on my good name!" for days and days) or a wonderfully sad ballad like 'Isn't it Strange?' (not sure I'll ever get over the beauty of its lyrics like "if we were made for each other, we were made imperfectly, from pieces that would never fit right") this album has a song you'll enjoy. It's not always easy to get your music heard, as you may pick up on in 'Every Time' which rounds out this album, but David Ford is ever persistent and I for one am especially grateful for that. This album does not disappoint and I definitely recommend Charge for anyone who is a fan of bluesy/folky rock (don't forget about the ballads!) or just a fan of honest and passionate music. Check it out and spread the word!

Very impressive

This album is David Ford's most raw and most exciting yet- a collection containing his most intense tracks, as well as his most delicate poetry, among his very impressive sets of songs. Every track lures you into cleverly written stories painted with wit and pure musical genius. "Charge" delivers.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

As the former frontman of Easyworld, a British indie rock outfit that disbanded in 2004, David Ford established a reputation as a talented singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist. He then parlayed those skills into a solo career, releasing the debut album I Sincerely Apologise for All the Trouble I've Caused in 2005. After gaining an audience in his native England, Ford traveled to Texas to play at the 2006 SXSW festival, where a particularly strong performance led him to a deal with Columbia...
