Robben Ford has accumulated five Grammy nominations, a three-decade-long solo career, and a resume that includes Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, and George Harrison. His accomplishments reflect the versatility and musicality of someone who has pursued their true calling. This long-time Californian has relocated to Nashville in search of new musical inspiration. His instructional videos and clinics over this time have culminated in a collaboration with TrueFire and the birth of the Robben Ford Guitar Dojo. This new era of creative output features him at the helm, highlighting both up-and-coming artists as well as some of the best instrumentalists that “Music City” has to offer. His latest recording, Purple House (2018) is a remarkable collection of songs featuring Ford’s enlightened approach to composition and production. “I was inspired to go past what would certainly happen on a traditional blues or R&B album, take more chances sonically, and open it up.”

I'm an expatriate Memphis musician and an instructor at a private music college in Minnesota. I find a greater clarity in my appreciation for music from Memphis and the Mississippi Delta region, now that I've lived away from it for decades, than when I was growing up in the midst of it.
