M. Ward

Lately....I have been desiring music that is....less powered by sugar and teen angst.... something that revels itself more and more on repeat listenings.

Check out the songs on his myspace

I think it's your oregonian bias.
Four years ago I saw M. Ward, Jim James, and Conner Oberst on their Monsters of Folk tour. All three did solo acoustic sets at the Paramount in Austin. I can say that he is one of a handful of musicians that one me over from playing live.
You should give Ray Lamontagne and Andrew Bird a try as well.
Last week M. Ward did an acoustic set for NPR's All Songs Considered, they made a podcast of it available as well.

MWard is playing a free show at Auditorium Shores here in Austin, on the 19th of March; Too bad I will be in D.C. by then :(

Good info Taggart....I will look that up.
I have yet to really listen to Mr. Lamontagne but am a big fan of Mr. Oberst.
I have Andrew Birds stuff and really like the Armchair Apocolypse album.

Mertardo...are you moving again?
