TUESDAY BLUES! M.Ward - The First Time I Ran Away



M.Ward - The First Time I Ran Away

This has made a few appearances on my not-so-generic mp3 player recently.  It is by M.Ward, solo artist, but also 'She & Him' and 'Monsters of Folk' fame. It will feature on his 7th album 'The Wasteland Companion' due out in April.

I like the quiet, Elliott Smith feel of it and it certainly has echoes of Conor Oberst whose vocal style may have rubbed off on him when he toured with Bright Eyes.
"she & him, him & her"
He's recorded, written with and played for a 'who's who' of alt-country/indie folk musicians but despite this, is still relatively unknown.

Nice tune. Been listening to him on and off for a few years but must put him back in the 'in' tray more often. Love She & Him.
