About the artist
M. Ward is a Portland-based singer-songwriter whose music seems to occupy a place that is uniquely “out of time,” a place that bridges the gaps between the roots of various American musical traditions of folk, country, blues, and rock. Ward spins timeless classics that seem to flow effortlessly—simple yet eloquent tales alive with metaphor and imagery told in a raspy, sepia-toned croon.
M. Ward has guested and collaborated on recordings by Cat Power, Neko Case, Beth Orton, The Court & Spark, Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, and My Morning Jacket. In addition to his solo work he is known as a member of She & Him and Monsters of Folk.
