Recognizing with universal understanding that time is a precious and ever-fleeting commodity, below
are all the pertinent informational points for Airpark’s upcoming EP release...
-Airpark is a Nashville-based duo - comprised of brothers Ben Ford and Michael Ford, Jr. – that
formed in early 2017. People often think that they're twins, but they're not; however, the
archetypal mystic sibling connection is very much there. 
-Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley (Tennis) produced and recorded the band’s new record in Denver,
CO over nine days at their studio, Mutually Detrimental. 
-Said EP is entitled Songs of Airpark and features five tracks mostly about confronting and
overcoming conflict, but there’s definitely one tune about lust. The collection of songs will be released
October 12 on the brothers’ own Eugenia Hall Records.
-While in the studio, the group would reference and channel the music of Serge Gainsbourg, The
Zombies and America, to name a few.
-Ben and Michael found the recording process to be truly collaborative and thoroughly enjoyable.
Furthermore, they feel that Pat and Alaina are “the real deal” and “exactly what we hoped they would
be like.”
-A discerning ear would say the new music feels like a healthy evolution of the Airpark sound with an
emphasis on soulful vocals, drums that groove particularly hard and the occasional nod to ‘70s pop
jams. The first single ‘Devotion’ is a shining technicolor example of all of the above.
-The record was mastered by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering in L.A. He’s also worked
with Cass McCombs and A.A. Bondy, whom Ben and Michael are big fans.
-What’s next you ask? Heavy fall touring. The live show has taken on new life with frontman Michael
using a mid ‘60s Hofner violin bass that sounds fantastic and enhances the aforementioned
“particularly hard” groove found in their songs. Witness it for yourself in a major city near you…

At the restless age of 5, Hank would attentively sit with his dad in the studio for hours and soak up the recording process as award winning singers, songwriters, and musicians would create music that would later find its way onto the national stage. “From my earliest memories, it's been about music” he states. “Music has always drawn me and now I embrace it with every fiber in me” he states. “I can’t put it down…” Today at the age of 14, he has played such iconic venues including 3rd and Lindsley, The Hard Rock Café, World Music &The Billy Block Show as a member of the incredibly talented youth Blues/Rock group, Cumberland Blue. After winning the youth category in Nashville In the fall of 2012, Cumberland Blue was selected to represent The Nashville Blues Society at The International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. In January of 2013, Cumberland Blue showcased their talent and represented Nashville at The New Daisy Theater on the world famous Beale Street in Memphis, Tennesse
