Though you may recognize Colton Ford from his previous foray into adult films, it’s time to avert your eyes and prick up your ears.

Ford’s effort to break from adult film into the pop music industry via the recording of his 2004 single “Everything,” was the subject of the documentary, “Naked Fame,” which was released theatrically by here! Films/Regent Releasing and can still be seen on the gay cable network, here! TV. (“Everything” was released on Nervous Records.)

His first mainstream.
Ford is one of the stars of the original series ‘The Lair’, playing Sheriff Trout. The series debuted in June 2007.

After he decided to change careers, Ford set his sights on becoming a Club/Dance and House music singer-songwriter. He then released several singles including “Everything” and a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours”. On that track, he collaborated with Club/Dance singer-songwriter Pepper Mashay. The song peaked at number 9 on the Dance Club Play and number 25 on the Dance Singles Sales charts

Colton Ford has been a musician since childhood. From school days playing the violin, the guitar and singing in choirs, to post high school years performing in dinner theater ensembles, jazz clubs and Las Vegas reviews (opening for Wayland Flowers & Madame and David Brenner) to adulthood, recording several late-Eighties dance singles. In 1992, he was signed to Denise Rich’s (and Michael O’Hara’s) production company (MIDE Productions), which brought him to the attention of the Godfather of House Music, Frankie Knuckles, who chose him to be the vocalist on his second album.
