The smoky-voiced singer and songwriter M. Ward has become known, in recent years, for being quite the collaborator.
He teamed up with Zooey Deschanel for the project She & Him, and with Conor Oberst and Jim James for the indie supergroup Monsters of Folk. But all along, he’s built a quiet arsenal of solo recordings. The latest is called A Wasteland Companion.

M. Ward plays Celebrate Brooklyn @ Prospect Park Bandshell Tuesday tonight.
