M. Ward - Words and Music - 2012

by Alisa Ali

It's hard to pin M. Ward down because the man is in demand. As a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and ace collaborator in She & Him and Monster of Folk, he could call it a day and we'd already be impressed. But he doesn't, and the seventh studio album under his own name sounds mighty impressive. It's called A Wasteland Companion, and we were treated to some great live music and conversation, when Ward visited Studio A. [recorded: 05/11/12]

'She & Him' kept him busy last year, but M. Ward still found time to finish a new solo album called 'Hold Time,' mixing his signature, sleepy acoustic sound with layers of lush production. During a recent session in Studio-A, Matt spoke with 'FUV's Kara Manning about finding that balance between sparse and excessive, and inviting other voices to join in the songs.
