John Ford (Blues / Cincinnati, Ohio)

It’s pre war blues, old school country, southern gospel and the history behind the music. John Ford assimilates the blues of the 1920’s and 30’s, the blues of Robert Johnson and Son House, a bit of 1940's country and a pinch of gospel rhythm, and comes up with his own brand of the roots experience.
John recently released his newest album in September of 2016. Titled "The John Ford Blues Society", his first full length album, comprised of 10 tracks, it has some of the best musicians in Cincinnati playing along.
John recorded the 2014 EP "Songs From Room 414" at The Gunter Hotel in San Antonio Texas – the hallowed ground where Robert Johnson recorded 16 out of his 27 songs in November of 1936. His first EP, “Injection of the Blues” was released in 2011. In 2015, John was nominated for a CEA (Cincinnati Entertainment Award).
