Bucks Music is very excited to welcome Samuel Ford to the Family in partnership with Heavenly Songs.
Samuel Ford, a songwriter, hailing from the medieval Sussex cinq port of Rye, intertwines immediate melodies and literate lyrics with intricate rhythms that soar from the darkest chasms to atmospheres of uplifting melancholy.
He spent his childhood immersed in music and was a cello player in a local orchestra until at 15 years old he picked up a guitar and has not looked back. He also plays double bass and piano/keyboards and writes/arranges/notates all his own music.
Samuel took himself off to Austria after leaving college and spent six months living there — honing his craft and performing with his cherished Martin guitar to whatever audiences he could find. At times Samuel has fronted his own band — but for the moment he is performing as a solo artist. Albeit one who is much more than standard boy with guitar who has graced the stage at such diverse venues as Los Angeles’ The Viper Rooms and London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
His first home-made record release ‘The Storm’ was championed by several influential BBC djs and he’s currently recording and co-producing his next EP due for release in Spring 2015 — when he will be undertaking an extensive UK tour.
Samuel embraces both acoustic and the most contemporary electronic sounds, and on his young shoulders there rests an older head singing, writing and performing for today and tomorrow.
