David Ford Recruited To Open For Gomez In May

UK-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Ford will tour North America with Gomez beginning May 3 in Asheville, NC. The tour will stretch through May 26 in Portland, OR, and comes in support of the May 2 release of Ford's critically acclaimed debut album, I Sincerely Apologize For All The Trouble I've Caused, which he wrote, produced and performed entirely by himself.

Before he takes to the road with Gomez however, Ford will play three nights with Aqualung in Atlantic City, New York City and Somerville, MA, on April 30, May 1 and May 2, respectively. He also has a one-off date with Elvis Costello at a Tribeca Film Festival Event on May 5 in NYC.
