Intimate 1999 Solo Debut Back in Stock!
Coming on the heels of his six year stint in the indie rock/folk trio Rodriguez, M. Ward crafted these tunes on his travels between San Luis, Chicago and finally Portland. Recorded by longtime friend Adam Selzer at the then fledgling Type Foundry Studio in Portland, 1999 solo debut Duets For Guitars #2 is about as intimate as it can get. The voices are hushed and whispered and the guitars are subtle yet precise, hinting at the virtuosity that would rear its head on future releases and collaborations. Taking pages from the book of John Fahey and with nods to Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie, this compelling album is the perfect starting point in your new obsession with M. Ward.
