Originally from Canberra, Dan Ford followed his passion for jazz and improvised music to studies at the Australian National University and Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. He has enjoyed performances at the Queensland Music Festival, Merimbula Jazz Festival, and Canberra International Music Festival.
