She & Him on Sound Opinions
Musical duo She & Him
visited the Chicago Public Radio performance studio
today for an interview with Sound Opinions
hosts Jim DeRogatis
and Greg Kot
. The "She" of the group, Zooey Deschanel
, has primarily made a name for herself as an actress, appearing in such films as "Almost Famous," "The Good Girl" and "The Happening." But, as Elf
fans will know, she's also a singer, having performed in the jazz cabaret act "If All the Stars Were Pretty Babies" since 2001. Deschanel met her "Him," musician M. Ward
, on the set of the 2007 independent film "The Go-Getter." The two began collaborating via email and eventually released their first album Volume One
this past spring. Listen to their first single, "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here."
Why Do You Let Me Stay Here
And stay tuned to Sound Opinions next weekend to hear some of their live tracks, as well as their conversation with Jim and Greg.
