Charged is David Ford's fourth solo studio album. The U.K born singer began his career in 2001 as a guitarist, singer and song writer for the Eastworld band. The band released only two albums and then broke-up in 2004. David went on to released his own solo dubute album called "I Sincerely Apoligized For All The Trouble I've Caused" on him and his friend record label called magnolia in 2005. The Sunday times named his album, one of the "10 album of the year". My favorite song on that album was State Of The Union. David second album was called "Song For The Road" and the third album "Let The Hard Times Roll". All David's albums reflects what is going on in the world or what is going on in his life.

I'm big fan of David and had to get his new C.D "Charge". This album starts of with an accent on folk & blues music but further on alternative rock prevail. The songs on the album vary from gentle to hard making this album quite diverse. This is David best album to date. This is an album that will be on repeat in my stereo system. My three favorite songs on the album are "What's Not To Love" is a simple love song played out on the piano, "Perfect Soul" is about a man pleading his case to a woman and "Philadelphia Boy" is about how he broke down on stage in Philadelphia and the crowd took him in their hearts.

I recommend this album for anybody who wants to listen to great music. The album has an array of different types of songs and music that will pleased alot of people .

The art of songwriting consists largely in the art of making the particular universal and the universal particular. To see through our own experience to the heart of the human experience, to see our own stories reflected in the Great Story, and then to use that Great Story as a guide to the way we live our own stories – this is what the great songwriters do, and enable us to do in turn. It’s a gift I sense regularly in Bruce Springsteen, for instance. And it’s not the only way that British singer-songwriter David Ford resembles the Boss, though it’s perhaps the most important.

The ten songs on Ford’s Charge (2013) have it all: gritty character sketches, tear-jerking tales of love and loss, feel-good love songs, songs of wanderlust, all told with Ford’s Springsteen-via-Sussex vocals and his ear for a turn of phrase. Ford is equally at home spinning off jokes (“And if cannot hold your liquor/Oh, honey, I’ll hold back your hair/If all you need is some distraction, girl/Hey – hey, what’s that over there?”), tugging at heartstrings (“If we were made for each other, we were made imperfectly/From pieces that would never fit right”), and singing the praises of that most American of cities, Philadelphia (“When you’re down and you’re out/And don’t remember the feeling of joy/You can lean on me, brother, I won’t let you fall/Not while I’m a Philadelphia boy”).

You could be forgiven for thinking Ford was an American troubadour following in the footsteps of Woody Guthrie; the only thing that gives away his Sussex heritage is the occasional bleed-through of his English accent. Otherwise his music draws on every major American music tradition of the previous century, incorporating greasy horns and Latin grooves into a solid foundation of folk, blues, and soul.
