Marc Ford has enjoyed a strong recent resurgence supporting his deep solo catalog. Besides Marc’s distinguished career starting with Burning Tree being signed to Epic Records in 1989, to playing with the likes of The Black Crowes, Ben Harper, Gov’t Mule, Booker T. Jones, Blue Floyd, The Blind Boys of Alabama and more, he has been releasing albums of his own material for over 20 years. Marc has joined forces with a highly accomplished rhythm section. Phil Jones (drums) has played extensively with Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, and Johnny Rivers, among others. Jim Wilson (bass) has been playing with multi-Grammy Award winner Daniel Lanois for over 20 years.

The band has been busy. Highlights for 2023 include a Northeast run in June, a Midwest run in August, a Southwest/Colorado run in August and September, a statewide California run in September, and festival appearances at BeachLife Ranch in Redondo Beach, June Lake Jam Fest outside Yosemite, as well as Caveman Festival in Colorado. Marc’s playing better than ever. JamBase said in a recent article that “this might be the opening chapter of his finest hour yet.”

Marc is also a successful producer. Grainne Duffy’s new album is getting a lot of buzz overseas, the new Red Shahan album is due for release in early 2024, and Marc has a new album of his own in the final stages. Marc and Phil released an EP of Neil Young covers titled “Neil Songs” in early 2023, of which most shows feature a couple choice cuts in the set list.
