Michael C. Ford

His first CD, "Fire Escapes," was a 1995 entry from New Alliance Records & Tapes Hen House Studios has been promoting and marketing his CD "Look Each Other in the Ears." That document (both vinyl and CD) features a stellar band of musicians not the least of which were surviving members of a 1960s theatre rock quartet that most of you may recall as The Doors. In 2015, a chapbook length poem "The Driftwood Crucifix" was published by Los Ranchos Press in Española, New Mexico. In 2017 "Women Under the Influence" was published on the Central Coast by Word Palace Press. Foothills Publishing is including "Populated Wilderness" in a chapbook format as a premium offer coordinated with a book-length collection entitled "The War Chamber Ministry." Also, in December of this year, Beyond Baroque, as part of its 50th anniversary, will be distributing 2 volumes in doubleheader format with back to back titles "Manhattan Island Suite" and "Block Island Latitudes." His debut 12-inch-vinyl recording "Language Commando" earned a Grammy nomination on the 1st ballot in 1987 and his book of selected work, "Emergency Exits," earned initial nomination for the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1998.
