Ever since its release in February, M. Ward’s Hold Time has been on constant rotation in all my musical playing devices. And much thanks to NPR All Songs Considered for sharing one of his solo live performances and an interview that really gives great insight into Ward’s songwriting and the creation of Hold Time.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Ward live, I hope you can catch him during his current tour. He’s a gifted storyteller and his songwriting and performances are timeless, bordering on spiritually transcendent.
My experiences covering Ward in 2007 and last year at Pitchfork Festival, having me looking forward to his Chicago stop in April.
What shows are you looking forward to?
