M. Ward – a well-kept secret

I would like to introduce you to a truly gifted musician and songwriter  –  M. Ward. You might know him from Monster of Folk or from the band She & Him (with Zooey Deschanel) however his solo work is amazing. A few days ago I listened to some of his tracks and was mesmerized by them. His music is sort of timeless; you don’t find it that often nowadays.

Growing up in Portland M. Ward released his first solo debut “Duet for Guitars” in 2001 followed by 6 other records. His last album  “Hold Time” was released in 2009. In 2006 he got together with Zoey Deschanel as the band She & Him. And then in 2009 he formed the band Monster of Folk  with Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes and My Morning Jacket star Jim James.

This guy is a real genius…always ready for surprises…can’t wait for more.

By the way M stands for Matthew.
