About Motor City Josh:
FINDING A NEW GEAR is the 13th album from Detroit’s veteran blues journeyman, Motor City Josh. Born in Warren, MI to a musical family, Joshua Steven Ford was the eldest son of parents who were both preachers.
As a youngster, Ford showed interest in the guitar and by the age of 19 he was earning a living as a full-time musician. His earliest heroes included legendary artists such as Howlin’ Wolf, Albert Collins, and Taj Mahal – all of whose influences still ring in the echoes of Ford’s best work.
An accomplished songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and renowned slide guitarist, Motor City Josh spent over 15 years (2000 – 2015) touring relentlessly throughout the 48 contiguous states. He and his bandmates logged hundreds of thousands of miles riding up and down the highways and byways of America. In the process, they amassed a loyal following throughout the south and all along the east coast – traveling from Key West, FL to Rockland, ME.
