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, David Ford presents Animal Spirits at Darwen Library Theatre; a new collection of songs regarding economics and the part it plays in 21st century life.
Having spent two years researching for the project, Ford has managed to seize this important, but admittedly dry, complex subject and deliver an album of accessible, emotive and engaging songs that try to make sense of an increasingly confounding world.
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.
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.
“Unmissable – 5 out of 5.”
“One of Britain’s best.”
“Genuine depth and striking authority.”
“Smart, angry, witty, emotional songs, delivered with raw-throated passion.”
