On Thursday, Waiting Room Records hosted the father-son alt-country/blues duo Marc and Elijah Ford as they performed an in-store acoustic performance in front of a limited amount of viewers.
Marc released his latest solo album, "Holy Ghost" earlier this year in conjunction with Naim Edge Records. Produced by Phantom Limb's Stew Jackson, "Holy Ghost" is reflective set of Ford’s own acoustic guitar-based tunes. Heavily shaped by his decision to pull back from touring and focus on his family life, the album’s gentle flow could be the very sound of life slowing down.
Marc enjoys to keep his family included as his wife, Kirsten, added additional vocals to the album while his son Elijah provided background guitar throughout the album.
Elijah is currently working with Jackson on a new album to be released sometime this year while currently providing opening support for his father while on tour.
Waiting Room Records is located at 113 W. North St. Normal, Ill. The record store hosts several in-store acoustic performances as well as provides citizens and students with a premier record store.
