Ford has also performed on Last Call With Carson Daly and Sun Studio Sessions. The Guardian called him “unmissable… one of Britain’s best.”

“I don’t dwell on the past, I don’t rue my mistakes,
And I’m proud that I never had whatever it takes,
Now I’m stood on the deck of this leaky old boat,
With just a shirt on my back and a song in my throat,
And I’m the luckiest boy on the face of the earth,
Cause I know about love and I know what it’s worth,
So I’m not giving up, and I’m not giving in,
Though I know it’s a fight that I’m not gonna win,
And I still scream in the face of more powerful men:
I choose this motherfucker, and I’d choose it again!”
