Friday August 3rd: M. WARD
Matthew Stephen "M." Ward is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Portland, Oregon. Ward's solo work is mixture of folk and blues-inspired Americana analog recordings; he has released nine albums since 1999, primarily through independent label Merge Records.
In addition to his solo work, he is a member of pop duo She & Him and folk-rock supergroup Monsters of Folk, and also participates in recording, producing, and playing with multiple other artists.
His new record “What an Industry” was a surprise and according to Ward: “This is a record inspired by people in the industry I have known—heroes and villains in equal measure.”
