THE DUMB ALBUM
"Corl's forthcoming album, The Dumb Album, is the work of a confident singer, songwriter and bandleader. In the 11 years since Acoustic Face, Corl has released three other albums and an EP—a steadily improving catalog of songs."

"The Dumb Album is Ford’s latest release. A truly ambitious effort combining lush synth textures and Indie-Pop. This record draws from inspirations old and new. Everything from 80’s New Wave and 90’s Grunge to modern Pop. The album might have a “Dumb” name, but upon listening, it’s quite emotional. Ford really pours his heart out on this record, resulting in an absurd, sad and even uplifting listening experience."

About The Dumb Album
This album has been an honest to goodness labor of love. From writing and recording the demos, to the finish product, this album took roughly 3 years to make. It might only be 8 songs, but these are the most carefully crafted pieces I've ever made. It's all thanks to the amazing people that contributed to this album.
Ford Corl - Vox, Guitar, Synth
Shawn Sariti - Lead Guitar
