This song is...
This song is an idea that sprang from a previous recording of "Samba Knights", where my singer, Renae Suttie, did an impromptu scat. I was so excited with her improvisation for scatting that I immediately sat down and wrote "Scatter Brained" specially for her. This is the result!
The music we are creating is...
The music I am creating is what I call "crossover-jazz". It's easy listening, yet provides a jazz element that most people seem to appreciate. I think there is a genre for this kind of music which I can only describe as a juncture between jazz, pop and blues. I'm not a professional musician, and only starting writing music about 18 months ago, so I'm a bit of a newbie - it's all for fun!
Though having won 2 x Silver medals and 1 x bronze from the Global Music Awards, the American Songwriting Awards and the UK Songwriting Contest last year, has given me the impetus to write more.
Right now we are...
Right now we have recorded an album of my songs called "Renae Suttie sings the Brian Ford Songbook Vol I", which was released in September of last year. Hence, I am now working on Vol II.
