Marc Ford Bio:
Marc Ford’s first record was with CBS’ renowned retro blues rockers Burning Tree in the late 1980’s. Burning Tree’s self-titled debut album was a much-heralded debut among guitar aficionados and led to Ford being asked to join The Black Crowes.
Ford put his stylized guitar stamp on the Black Crowes’ second record “The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion,” which went to number one on the Billboard charts, eventually going double platinum. Ford continued recording and touring with the band through their next
two releases, 1994’s “Amorica” and 1996’s “Three Snakes and One Charm” as well as making two additional records with the band, “Tall” and “The Band” which were recorded in the 90’s and were previously unreleased until 2006.
After playing in a number of popular touring groups, Ford accepted an invitation to join “Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals” and toured with them, recording their EP and DVD each entitled “Live at the Hollywood Bowl.” Ford continued to work with Ben Harper and his band
and won a Grammy Award in 2004 for his involvement with Ben Harper and the Blind Boy’s Of Alabama’s record, “There Will Be A Light.” Ford also appears on Ben Harper and the Blind Boy’s Of Alabama’s DVD “Live At The Apollo.” Two years ago Ford was asked to rejoin The Black Crowes and recorded their “All Join Hands” reunion tour while also continuing to work with Harper, appearing on his 2006 album “Both Sides of the Gun.”
After the 2006 release of the double CD and DVD “Into the Fog,” Live At The Fillmore with The Black Crowes,” Ford left the Black Crowes and began making plans to record “Weary and Wired.” This significant recording shows Marc’s strength as a singer/songwriter, fueled by large doses of his phenomenal guitar work that brings to mind such masters as Clapton, Hendrix and Beck.
