Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling artist John Ford Coley (best known for his early career work as one-half of the ‘70s duo England Dan & John Ford Coley whose hits included “I'd Really Love to See You Tonight,” “We'll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again” and “Love is the Answer”) announces his album, Sketches Vol. 1, will be available for streaming today for the first time ever. Hand-selected by Coley from his personal archives, the songs on Sketches Vol. 1 were recorded throughout his storied career but never released until 2021 and includes “Falling,” which he wrote with former bandmate Dan Seals before his death in 2009.  

In partnership with StarVista Music, three additional albums are being digitally released, including Eclectic, Long Way Home (Live in Israel and L.A.), and The Very Best of, which all feature music from throughout his solo career.

“These songs have been the road map of life and musical career,” shares John Ford Coley. “From the duets with England Dan and after, the music has taken me around the world, as it is the universal language for us all. Although a couple of these albums were released in the past, I am hopeful that this partnership brings a new light to each song. This is the first time Sketches Vol. 1 has been available for streaming, which is very exciting.”  

Coley wrote an autobiography in 2009, made his Grand Ole Opry debut in November 2022, and continues to tour throughout the world, including the following upcoming shows:
