A bright young storyteller with a mesmerizing stage presence, English singer-songwriter David Ford has released two albums of dark, dramatic rock that brings to mind the works of Damien Rice, among others. Return to this space to hear Ford perform a concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia at noon ET Friday.

After the demise of his band Easyworld in 2004, Ford quickly launched a solo career with I Sincerely Apologise For All The Trouble I've Caused, which crossed these shores in 2006. The disc's frank takes on personal and world politics smartly combine moodiness and irony, outspokenness and sensitivity. At this show, look for Ford to showcase new material from his fine follow-up disc, Songs for the Road.
