Malcolm Ford – Biography, Family Life & Details About Harrison Ford’s Son

Malcolm Ford is the son of veteran actor Harrison Ford but he is most likely not inspired by the actor as he is more focused on carving out a comfortable place for himself in the music industry than being in movies. While his name may independently not ring a resounding bell yet, especially when it comes to celebrity orbit, the American singer is working hard to become a success. For now, he enjoys a fair share of fame after he created a promising band named Dough Rollers that has toured with a number of famous names such as John Mellencamp, among others.

Malcolm Ford’s Biography

One of the offsprings of Late Melissa Mathison, and her ex-husband actor Harrison Ford, Malcolm Ford was born on October 3, 1987, in the USA. Though his mother was a screenwriter and his father an actor, Malcolm grew up not acutely eager about fame, which was probably caused by his troubling childhood following his parents’ divorce. The same reason he had spent his high school days living a wayward lifestyle. His rebellious lifestyle later pushed him to drop out of school and turn into a drug addict.

During that time, he crossed path with Jack Byrne in New York, son of actors Gabriel Byrne and Ellen Barkin. They quickly became friends and Byrne decided to take him on guitar lessons. Malcolm returned the favour by teaching Byrne how to do drugs. In 2008, their closeness led to the creation of a music group named Dough Rollers. At first, it was just the two of them but later on, they received a new entrant in the person of vocalist Julia Tepper. But Julia left in 2010, shortly after they released their first album which featured 10 tracks of various music genres such as country, blues, etc.

The group has gone on to release its second album named Someday Baby and in recent years, signed a recording deal with Third Man Records owned by Jack White, a notable songwriter. In 2014, they released their first EP titled Gone Baby Gone.
