My roommate introduced me to Portland, Oregon based singer-songwriter M.Ward earlier this week and I had the chance to see him live this weekend at Central Park's Summerstage. He has an amazing husky voice that sounds exactly as he does recorded as he does live! He is also fantastic on both the keyboard and guitar while weaving out relaxed, folk/rock tunes. Watch his music video for Chinese Translation below, it's adorable, touching and sad.
You can check out his sound on myspace.com/mward or download the free track Never Had Nobody But You (feat. Zooey Deschanel) via RCRD LBL.com.
