Still working on that hot first release.



The Walk of Every Man began in the summer of 2005 as a three-guitar jam project with brothers Don and Chris Ford and their mutual friend Jeff MacAdams. Originally titled “The Everyman,” the group was mostly involved in covers of the group’s favourite bands. Chris had recently developed a taste for songwriting in his university dorm room and donated his repertoire to the group, who were met with enthusiasm from their friends and from the Calgary open-mic scene. The Everyman went on to play through 2006, but the three were separated by school and this lack of continuity eventually led to Jeff’s departure in 2007 (prompting the band’s change of name). That same summer Chris and Don embarked on a two-month road trip across the United States, their homeland. Many of the band’s most popular songs were written during this period (including their most requested song, All I Ever Want). Chris and Don continue to play in small venues in both Calgary and Edmonton.

The band’s influences are varied; Chris and Don both share a penchant for classic and contemporary rock bands, but their tastes run eclectic beyond this point. Chris’ songwriting has been most heavily influenced by Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party, U2, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Crosby Stills and Nash, Radiohead, Neil Young, Ben Harper, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, and Wilco. Don’s guitar owes as much to a heavy blues influence with elements of Clapton and Hendrix as it does to the more melodic-rock sounds of Mark Tremonti or John Frusciante.
