Weezy Ford : Live Stream presented by Sou’wester Arts
Weezy Ford is a songwriter and musician from Portland, Oregon. She works alongside her partner, Mark Robertson, who produces and engineers her records with homemade analog equipment in his studio, Field Electric.

It’s a risky and playful choice that ultimately pays off and leaves the listener wanting more.” – Jerad Walker, OPB
