MICHAEL FORD

COMPOSER

Michael Ford is a pianist/composer who lives in Falls Village, CT. He grew up in the Philadelphia area and began studying the piano at the age of 4, and performed his first public concert at age 6. He made his debut as soloist with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra at 13.

Infatuated with progressive rock and jazz fusion, he formed several bands performing with a large collection of keyboards. He later toured as pianist for the Paul Taylor Dance Company and performed and recorded both as soloist and with the orchestra in their Broadway seasons and in PBS “Dance in America” series.

In 1995, after being introduced to children’s book author and illustrator, Sandra Boynton, they forged a longtime collaboration of songwriting spanning 25 years that resulted in six book/ cd’s for children and family, two of which went gold and one platinum - “Philadelphia Chickens”.

 

Rediscovering the intimate power of the solo piano resulted in the creation of four impressionistic albums. Two of them nominated for best contemporary classical album by the Independent Music Awards.

His music has appeared in films, documentaries, modern dance performances and theatrical plays. His debut as a feature film scorer began in 2009 and has continued to the present, (The Scottish Play is his third film with director Keith Boynton).
