Music Millennium

This Portland-based songwriter's music bridges the gap between folk, country, blues and rock. Armed with a guitar, harmonica, sparse percussion and a tin pan alley-esque piano. Ward spins timeless classics that seem to flow effortlessly. Simple yet eloquent tales alive with metaphor and imagery, told in a raspy, sepia-toned croon. He's been compared to Tom Waits, Granddaddy, Sparklehorse and Howe Gelb.

Reviews:

''Transfiguration of Vincent'', released in 2003, is the third studio album by singer-songwriter M. Ward. The title alludes to the 1965 album ''The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death'' by John Fahey, and refers to the life and death of Vincent O'Brien, a close friend to Ward. - Wikipedia
