M Ward

I'd just like to take this moment to officially thank Elvis Presley for introducing me to this great talent. You're the king.

He was the support act for a Beth Orton gig I saw nearly a year ago. I had never heard of him, but was just amazed. You really should see him live. The way he performs, really pulls you right in, you find yourself leaning right forward to concentrate on every note and every little mumble. He had everyone completely wrapped the same way. He also came out during Beth's set and performed a bunch of songs with her, which were great. Since that gig, bought all his albums, love him. DO SEE HIM LIVE.

I saw him on the Bright Eyes portion of the last Austin City Limits and thought he was pretty great. You've got him on your blog, EP or was this a private trade thing? I'd love to check out more of his stuff.

I bet I'm one of the few people whose love of M Ward led me to check out Bright Eyes and not the other way around

I would like to share a wee anecdote about Matt Ward.

About 2 years ago, he came into the studio to play live on air and I was his sound engineer. He was strung out something. Not sure what, but it was obvious to all. He brought with him his guitar and a violinist. Matt then saw that we had a keyboard and decided to tell the violinist to wait outside, said "fuck the guitar," and decided to figure out how to use our keyboard and adapt his songs for it, 10 minutes before he was supposed to play. LIVE. He then proceded to play a single song and walked out without saying anything to anyone.

Talented guy. Also a fucknut.

Downloaded and listened to the song 'Vincent O'Brien' from Matador Records' site.

Interesting song, not what I was expecting. Not at all. Still pretty good. How good of an example is this song of his other work?

it's a pretty good example really.. one of my favourites, too. his other songs are different though.. that's one of his more 'traditional' sounding ones.. as in oldschool folk blues
