Review: Ford steps into the spotlight with a full arsenal of well-penned originals and a strong instrument in his voice. It has soul and is technically assured. a lyricist tackling the realities of everyday life. His vocal prowess is the icing on the proverbial cake, a manifestation of a deep message. He combines old school soul, blues, pop, and jazz into a seamless amalgam
