KCRW Presents: M. WardKCRW

M. Ward is a singer, guitarist and expert songwriter who's perhaps best known for his collaborations with artists ranging from Zooey Deschanel and Conor Oberst to Jim James and Jenny Lewis. Even when he's the star of the show, he likes to hang back, and in this special session, recorded in front of a live audience, he had his baseball cap firmly over his eyes the entire set.

When he prepares to lay into the guitar, he does it by taking two steps back away from the audience, but he's a fierce performer. Watch M. Ward perform four songs at Apogee's Berkeley Street Studio for KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.
