Album: Volume One
. . .
Roughly spanning the period between establishing herself as a movie star and the period where she established herself as a TV star, Zooey Deschanel tried to establish herself as a singer of self-penned retro pop songs in the band She & Him.
Zooey was the “She” of course, with producer and multi-instrumentalist M. Ward as the titular “Him”, they put out three records of mostly Deschanel-penned songs between 2008 & 2013 when (presumably) the demands of starring in a sitcom — the excellent New Girl, for those of who keeping score at home — became too much for her to also spend time writing songs, as well, because after 2013, She & Him have done nothing but Christmas albums & cover albums.
