David Ford is the new breed angry young singer/songwriter

David Ford is a strange animal, one not previously catalogued by Animal Planet explorers. He’s a singer/songwriter and an angry young man—both at the same time. Who knows how this crossbreeding happened, but he’s nonetheless a smart creature well worth studying.  In the song “State of the Union”, Ford sarcastically announces: “With friends like these, who needs politicians?” Something tells me Mr. Ford has trouble finding takers for his dinner party invitations. Ford isn’t afraid to drop a few F-bombs here and there either, as he does during “Cheer Up (You Miserable F***).” Ford sings all of these vitriolic little numbers over folk-rock arrangements. “What Would You Have Me Do?” stands out for its violin solo, and “I Don’t Care What You Call Me” features a harmonica solo. “Don’t Tell Me” even has a little twang-y guitar. David Ford answers the hypothetical question: What would happen if Elvis Costello possessed James Taylor’s body?
