Best Of ’09: M. Ward

M. Ward – Hold Time

No exaggeration…from the first strum of “For Beginners” (track #1), M. Ward had me sucked into his album Hold Time. This is one of those albums that comes out early in the year (February) but cannot (and should not) be forgotten when ‘Best Of’ lists are made in December. I remember reading an article where the interviewer asked M. Ward how he would label himself…”People have had a lot of fun labeling you—You’re a modern folk interpreter. You’re an acoustic retro whisperer. Label yourself.” And he answered simply, “Guitarist.”
