About Marc Ford
Guitarist Marc Ford, who is best known for performing and recording with The Black Crowes and Ben Harper, began his career with the blues-rock outfit Burning Tree in the late 1980’s. A power trio featuring Ford on guitars and vocals, Mark Dutton on bass and Doni Gray on drums, Burning Tree released their self-titled debut album on Epic Records in 1990. In late 1991, Marc Ford sat in several times with The Black Crowes in-concert, performing The Allman Brothers Band’s classic hit, “Dreams.” Ford toured with Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals for the majority of 2003, from which their live double disc, Live at the Hollywood Bowl was drawn from. Ford continued his association with Ben Harper and his band through the close of 2004, when he was called to rejoin The Black Crowes for their “All Join Hands” reunion run. This reunion would serve as the platform for one of the greatest rock and roll comebacks in recent years. It would be the first time Ford would take the stage again with the band and Black Crowes fans were beyond ecstatic when the news broke in March 2005. Ford never severed his ties with Harper, however, appearing on his 2006 album Both Sides of the Gun and performing a handful of shows in support.
