Matthew Ward grew up in a home filled with music. The singer and songwriter, who performs under the name M. Ward, remembers hearing a wide range of tunes including Louis Armstrong's version of "Hello Dolly," the Carter Family's spirituals and the Doors. Our reviewer says Ward's new album, Transistor Radio, attempts to capture that diversity.
