“…Ward’s songs are at their best, and at their most enduring, when his songwriting bears the weight of mistakes made and life lived.” ~NPR
“Ward sheds his old-bluesman tics for a soul-folk croon—and the guitars, as usual, are sublime” ~Rolling Stone
M. Ward’s A Wasteland Companion is available on CD, LP and digital download now in the Merge store.
