She & Him

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]

WFUV Pop Quiz: She & Him

by Laura Fedele

The partnership between singer-songwriter M. Ward and Hollywood actress Zooey Deschanel might have struck some people as a vanity project at first, but it's the real deal. After being introduced by the director of The Go-Getter to record a duet, they discovered they shared a passion for similar music. On a whim, Zooey sent Matt some of her original songs, which he decided they should record, and She & Him was born. They came by WFUV to talk with Rita Houston about their second CD, Volume Two, and took the WFUV Pop Quiz.
