She & Him:
Fans of actress Zooey Deschanel already know about her incredible singing and instrumental abilities with the musical duo, She & Him, alongside M. Ward. Those that aren't familiar with the actress' musical stylings need only attend one tour date to appreciate the group's crowd pleasing combination of indie and country. Deschanel's songwriting speaks volumes on She & Him's two albums, in particular the hit single "In the Sun." With no new albums on the horizon and no tour dates in 2011, fans are eagerly awaiting the return of new music from She & Him.
Zooey Deschanel first treated the world to her velvety voice in the 2003 film, Elf. It was further showcased in the 2007 film, The Go-Getter, when she performed a duet with M. Ward. Ward knew that Deschanel had a great voice, but was surprised to find that she had been writing songs and recording demos for years without listening to them. The duo pieced together songs through e-mails and performed one tour date together at their movie's premiere before releasing Volume One in 2008. The album was well received and even made a couple of Best Of lists for the year, which was followed by She & Him's first official tour.
Volume Two was released in 2010 and received even greater acclaim, reaching #6 on the Billboard 200. The album has set the stage for a hugely successful career for She & Him, as it seems they can do no wrong. With Deschanel's busy movie career and Ward's numerous musical projects, She & Him have no scheduled tour dates for 2011.
