She & Him are actress and closet singer-songwriter, Zooey Deschanel (Almost Famous, The Good Girl, The Assassination of Jesse James), and juggernaut producer, one-man band and folk troubadour, M.Ward. With help from Portland-based indie music comrades such as Rachel Blumberg from The Decemberists coming together to create 60s inspired indie-pop of the country varietal, the duo evoke the spirit of the Carter family, Chet Baker and Linda Ronstadt to create an uneven number of charming tribute pop songs far beyond their years. If you dig AM classics, this baby was born for you.
