She & Him is the somewhat unlikely pairing of country-folk artist M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel. While starring in the 2007 film The Go-Getter, Deschanel was asked by director Martin Hynes to perform a duet with Ward, who had agreed to helm the movie's soundtrack. The two recorded a well-received cover of Richard & Linda Thompson's "When I Get to the Border" and later reconvened in Portland, where they set to work on recording Deschanel's own material (which the actress had previously kept secret) in Ward's studio. Drawing upon analog production techniques and the timeless catalogs of the Zombies, Dusty Springfield, and Linda Ronstadt, the duo emerged with Volume One, a collection of covers and originals that introduced Deschanel as a competent singer/songwriter.

Ward is another talented musician …
