Singer-songwriter M. Ward has released a string of acclaimed solo albums since his 1999 debut, each one further honing his poignant indie-folk sound. He's also one-half of Grammy-nominated duo She & Him (along with Zooey Deschanel) and a member of supergroup Monsters of Folk, with My Morning Jacket's Jim James and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis. In addition to his celebrated work as a musician, Ward's an accomplished producer, handling those duties for such luminaries as Mavis Staples and Jenny Lewis. Hear his signature rasp and tender lyrics on "Chinese Translation," newer tracks like "Girl From Conejo Valley" and more when this low-key indie star plays City Winery Chicago.
