The silver daddy muscle-god from Mission Viejo, CA makes his inaugural visit to Minneapolis, which includes a CD/Autograph signing at Twin Cities Leather & Latté and an evening at The Saloon featuring music from his new album, The Way I Am: a blend of dance, electronica, house, pop, funk, R&B, and a little jazz. “Getting to know oneself is a process, and I believe it’s what we are all here in this life to figure out,” says Ford. “I’m an unconditional lover. I lean towards optimism. The record conveys my truth with songs about self love, falling in love, staying in love, the loss of love, and yeah, hoping to get some.” His collaboration with Ron Schrader on “All My Love” and “Alone” holds special meaning for him. The two have known each other since kindergarten.  “He’s my longest friendship,” says Ford. “It was an incredible opportunity to work with him.” Ford has no qualms in reclaiming his hunky status.  “Sex sells,” he proclaims. “Turn on the TV, open a magazine or log onto the Internet.  It’s everywhere.  Being an artist and trying to resonate in the mainstream requires everything, including packaging. “After all,” Colton Ford says with a laugh, “being provocative is part of my nature.  It is just another layer of the way I am.”
