New Audio: Introducing the Classic Rock-Leaning Sounds of Elijah Ford

Elijah Ford is a California-born, Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter and guitarist, and the son of former Black Crowes‘ guitarist Marc Ford, and in fact the younger Ford toured with his father’s band Fuzz Machine when he was 17, before hooking up with Oscar and Grammy-winning artist Ryan Bingham, with whom Elijah Ford recorded and toured with for several years before going solo with the 2011 release of his full-length debut Upon Walking and its follow up, an EP Ashes in 2012.

“The Way We Were” Ford’s latest single off his forthcoming full-length As We Were slated for release on September 16, 2016 borrows heavily from bluesy and boozy old school rock — while possessing a finely crafted feel, thanks in part to a soaring and anthemic hook and a shimmying and shuffling sound reminiscent of The Black Crowes, Elvis Costello and others.
