Coming on the heels of his 6 year stint in the indie rock/folk trio Rodriguez, M. WARD crafted these tunes on his travels between San Luis, Chicago and finally Portland. Recorded by longtime friend ADAM SELZER at the then fledgling Type Foundry Studio in Portland, this album is about as intimate as it could get. The voices are hushed & whispered. The guitars are subtle yet precise, hinting at the virtuosity that would rear its head on future releases & collaborations. Taking pages from the book of Fahey and with nods to Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie, this album is the perfect starting point in your obsession with M. Ward.
