Renowned singer-songwriter and producer extraordinaire, M. Ward has been a fixture in the Portland folk scene where he’s been creating heart wrenchingly beautiful songs in a city that lends itself to introspection and subtlety. Known for his swooning voice and angelic guitar strumming, M.’s 2003 release, Transfiguration of Vincent, caught the attention of fans and future collaborators, including Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Jenny Lewis, Neko Case, Cat Power, Gillian Welch and Jim James (My Morning Jacket). Since 2003, M. has released several critically acclaimed albums, 2005’s Transistor Radio and his breakthrough release Post –War from 2007.

Since forming in 2014, Palehound—Kempner, drummer Jesse Weiss (Spook The Herd), and new bassist Larz Brogan—have taken their plainspoken, technique-heavy indie rock from the basements of Boston to festivals around the world. A Place I'll Always Go builds on the promise of Palehound's critically acclaimed 2015 album Dry Food with songs that breathe Kempner’s evolved maturity, while asserting her core artistic fire.
