A prolific writer, producer, and performer, M. Ward has established himself as one of modern American music's most unique and versatile voices.
In just the last decade alone he's teamed up with Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis, and Jim James to form the beloved super group Monsters of Folk, paired with Zooey Deschanel for six records as She & Him, and worked in the studio and on the road with the likes of Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, Norah Jones, Cat Power, Neko Case, Lucinda Williams, Peter Buck, and countless more.
Ward's newest album, 'Migration Stories', marks his tenth studio release and his debut for ANTI- Records. Recorded at Arcade Fire's Montreal studio, the collection is languid and hazy, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy as it reckons with a world that feels more divided than ever before, even as its inhabitants grow more inextricably linked by the day. Ward's delivery is tender and gentle throughout the album's eleven intimately rendered meditations, but there's an undercurrent of darkness floating just beneath the surface, a persistent sense that the end may be closer than any of us dare to realise.
