M. Ward Celebrating 20 years of Transfiguration of Vincent
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, prolific singer-songwriter and guitarist M.Ward will return to Australia this February to celebrate 20 years since the release of his critically acclaimed album Transfiguration of Vincent.
Released in 2003, Transfiguration of Vincent is Matthew Ward aka M.Ward’s third album, an infusion of folk and blues, dripping with deft guitar picking and barroom piano.
Inspired by John Fahey’s 1965 album The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death, this extraordinary album of gritty stories and melody-drenched music is a tribute to Ward’s close friend Vincent O’Brien.
M.Ward last toured Australia in 2011 and increased his popularity with several collaborations including being one half of She and Him with Zooey Deschanel and a member of indie supergroup Monsters of Folk.
With ten albums under his belt, all released through Merge Records, M.Ward will perform in Sydney, Canberra, Queenscliff, Castlemaine, Melbourne, Brisbane and Eltham NSW in this special anniversary tour of one of the greatest blues-inspired Americana albums ever created.
