Former Easyworld frontman David Ford will be showcasing songs from his critically-acclaimed debut solo album, I Sincerely Apologise For All the Trouble I've Caused, at Norwich Arts Centre, off St Benedict's, on Monday night.

His haunting melodies and barbed lyrical style have drawn comparisons with Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Ed Harcourt and Tom Waits, with his self-produced and -performed album causing a stir since its release in November.

Not only did the album receive high praise from publications as diverse as the Sunday Times, Uncut and The Fly, but it entered the iTunes alternative chart at an impressive number four, just below Coldplay, Warchild and Kaiser Chiefs.

The album features the lead single State of the Union and the forthcoming single I Don't Care What You Call Me due for release in February.

This is a chance to catch David Ford while you can. There is a great buzz about him and people are raving about his live performances.
