Today’s L.A. Events Preview: M. Ward

    M. Ward @ El Rey, 2/2

    M. Ward is currently on tour promoting his third album,Post-War, a collection of sweet, folk-tinged songs in the vein of Iron & Wine or early Sufjan Stevens that features collaborations with Howe Gelb (of Giant Sand), Jim James (of My Morning Jacket), and Neko Case. Not only are Ward’s recorded tracks enjoyable, but he has an understated yet ommanding stage presence, drawing the audience in with his soft, sincere singing and spirited guitar-playing. Victoria Williams is a member of The Original Harmony Ridge Creekdippers and The Thriftstore Allstars, but when she opens for M. Ward, the veteran folkster will be playing her own quirky, grassroots tunes and possibly some old standards, as she’s been known to cover engagingly. (RC)
