A long rumored Luddite renowned for recording his albums onto analog tape, M Ward's love of radio is well documented.
His 2005 album, Transistor Radio was a collection of songs inspired by "memories of a utopian radio power" which he dedicated to "the last of the remaining independent radio stations."
Touring the US over the past few years Ward often found it a challenge to find a great local radio station to accompany him. In creating this App - which also streams M Ward music and provides up to the minute touring information and social networking content - Ward has created the perfect traveling companion for radio connoisseurs everywhere.
M Ward's latest album 'A Wasteland Companion' is available on Merge Records and has garnered some of the most exuberant critical acclaim of his career to date.
M Ward and his formidable band are taking to the road in August for a run of dates including a special show with Yo La Tengo in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Wyatt Cenac from Comedy Central's The Daily Show has been confirmed as an exciting new addition to the bill. He'll be opening the show with a comedy set.
