M. Ward coming to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg
Okay, fine, so we're not getting Zooey Deschanel. The Him half of She & Him is still headed our way.
Singer-songwriter M. Ward is coming to the State Theatre on May 1. Tickets are $20-$23 and they'll go on sale this Friday. Click here.
Though he's an acclaimed singer-songwriter in his own right, he has over the years become best known for collaborations -- most notably his airy, indie-folksy duo with Deschanel, but also Monsters of Folk with Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and My Morning Jacket's Jim James. He's also a well-known producer of and collaborator with artists like Norah Jones, Jenny Lewis, Beth Orton and Neko Case.
His last album was She & Him's Volume Three -- he hasn't released a solo album since 2012's A Wasteland Companion -- so expect a mix of songs from throughout his career.
