John Ford's Official Web Page

    As a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, bass player, producer and recording artist, John Ford’s talent has made an enduring impact in music and pop culture through the years.

    Ford’s versatile live performance shifts easily from Solo Acoustic, to fronting a full electric band. He has played, toured and shared the bill with other music legends, including Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Dave Mason, Eagles, Frank Zappa, Marc Bolan, T. Rex, Blue Oyster Cult, ZZ Top, RUSH, REO Speedwagon, King Crimson, Lynyrd Skynrd, Billy Preston, Cat Stevens, Roy Harper, Ian Lloyd (Stories) and many more! John Ford also did a stint, performing and recording with Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, in their Blackmore’s Night band and featured on “Wind in the Willows,” on Under a Violet Moon CD.
    Ford joined the Strawbs in May of 1970.  The Strawbs band, primarily known as a Folk Rock group, shifted easily into the Prog Rock Scene with John Ford's unique influence. The Strawbs members also included Rick Wakeman, on synth/keyboards, later replaced by Blue Weaver, when Wakeman joined YES.  Weaver went on later to The BeeGees. 

    John Ford penned the Strawbs biggest hits, “Heavy Disguise,” and “Part of the Union,” a UK Top of the Pops Chart Hit at #2, on Bursting At The Seams, spending 59 weeks on the UK Album and Single charts. Popular worldwide and still a favourite with Union workers to this day, as well, was produced by Tony Visconti for A&M.  John Ford received several Platinum and Gold Records, in addition to an Ivor Novello Award for his songwriting achievements through the years.  Also, appearing in Grave New World full film album video.

    Leaving the Strawbs to form Hudson Ford, releasing five records and more hits, “Pick Up the Pieces,” ”Burn Baby Burn” – an early “green” song, “Floating in The Wind,” whilst on A&M.  In 1979, John Ford formed The Monks; a British pop punk rock band signed with EMI, and back on the Charts again with surprise hits, “Nice Legs Shame About The Face” from Bad Habits (now gone Double Platinum), followed by Suspended Animation with both Album and self-titled Single, going Gold.  Ford satisfied his penchant for 30s style music, as founding member and songwriter for the band, High Society, before relocating to the US in mid 80s. John has regularly reunited with the Strawbs for UK Tours through the years, most notably for September 2009 Strawbs Anniversary Weekend at Twickenham Rugby Stadium, and also included Rick Wakeman, original UK Electric Line-up keyboardist in London, all of which was filmed and recorded for CD/DVD release.  In addition, that year, Ford won Best Indie Rock Artist of the Year, from the Progressive Rock Hall of Fame, followed in 2010, by Ford and other Strawbs members becoming PRHoF.

    John and his band have performed at The Record Collector several times and have become regulars; coming back every few months and we love them !
