Who is Harrison Ford’s son Malcolm Ford?
Malcolm Ford was born on 10 March 1987, in the United States of America, and is a musician, but perhaps best known for being the son of high profile actor Harrison Ford, a product of his marriage to screenwriter Melissa Mathison. Malcolm is a part of the blues band “The Dough Rollers” who have been releasing music since 2014.
The Riches of Harrison Ford’s Son
How rich is Malcolm Ford? As of early-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, mostly earned through success in his musical endeavors. A lot of his wealth also came from his father who has numerous high valued contracts, and a net worth of over $230 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
A Life of PrivacyMalcolm grew up away from the spotlight, except for the fact that he was the son of his high profile parents, and grew up with his sister, Georgia, and also has two half-brothers from Harrison’s previous marriage to Mary Marquardt. He attended school in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but much like other children of Harrison Ford, he remained outside his father’s acting spotlight, and for Malcolm, he wanted to develop his musical prowess.
In 2008, he caught the media’s attention when he started dating model Jessica Stam, who is known to be one of the top earning supermodels around the world, one of those described as “doll faces” in reference to their look resembling that of popular dolls. They are apparently still together.
Finding A Career in Music
Ford and a friend Jack Byrne formed the band The Dough Rollers in 2008, after discovering their shared mutual appreciation for the blues genre. They began the band initially as a two piece, but they went on to include singer Julia Tepper, then focused on experimenting with various other types of music. The following year they released their first, self-titled album which comprised of bluegrass, country and blues music.
However, Tepper would soon leave the band, and the two remaining re-focused to making blues music, soon releasing their album entitled “Someday Baby”, which consisted of songs they created while touring and performing around the country. The album was in limited release but they toured again to promote their music. Afterwards, they then evolved the band once more to include bass and drum players, which allowed them to further change their music.
Media Exposure and Touring
Their current iteration of the band has received a lot of attention from various publications and media outlets, initially drawn to the fact that Malcolm went on to pursue a career in music instead of following his father’s footsteps. The band has toured with several popular names, including Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, John Mellencamp and Bob Dylan. They’ve also recorded an EP with Homme, which they plan to release. In the meantime, they consistently release singles which they promote on websites such as YouTube
Malcolm Ford on Social Media
Malcolm has a social media account on Facebook, but it has not been active for four years. Prior to its inactivity, he posted promotions of recent gigs, and events his band was playing at, and it also featured a few photographs. On the other hand, his band The Dough Rollers remain active on social media through a Facebook page, and Twitter page they use to connect to their fans and increase their exposure. Their social media account was also active up to 2015 on which they did constant promotions before that became silent as well.
They played on radio stations, went on tour, and also posted pictures of their daily endeavors. They also had a personal website which eventually became inactive, and the domain name was retaken and is back on sale. They also have various videos on YouTube, with performances made back in 2013.
Not Like His Father
Many media outlets have stated how Malcolm is unlike his father, with a different look and also through his foray into the music industry. He also showcases messy red hair and numerous tattoos on his body, which many believed is a sign of how he wanted to be as far away from association with his father as possible.
There have been a lot of speculation on the lives of Harrison’s children even as he mentioned before that all of his five children are doing well with their lives. In the meantime, the Dough Rollers continue to perform in England and have gone on to tour around Europe as well as the United States.
