This is ZZ Ward – ‘Back-Porch Blues Meets Hip Hop’

ZZ Ward

Recently, I was telling you about Lindsey Sterling, the amazing violinist that mixes dubsteb and classical sounds. When I discovered her I had to tell everybody (I mean I discovered her for myself, not that I discovered her, discovered her…she was already a phenomenon when I found out about her). Anyways…..

I found another artist that I have to tell you about: ZZ Ward. I first heard her song Put the Gun Down during a countdown on VH1. It was just a  real quick clip of the video but I knew I had to hear more. So, right away I got her album Til the Casket Drops and now  my whole house is in love with her music.

ZZ Ward

It is the most modern blues. A 21st century mixture of classic blues sounds stylized with neoteric themes. Or, as she says “back-porch blues meets hip hop.” Her album even has guest spots from rappers Kendrick Lamar and Freddie Gibbs.

Singer, musician and songwriter Zsuszsanna Eva Ward was born in Pennsylvanian and grew up in Oregon. Her dad had played in blues bands and turned her on to the music. She’s been playing in blues bands since she was 13. She says her influences range from Robert Johnson to Tina Turner.

Her first full album, Til The Casket Drops, came out in October 2012. Before that she released an EP and a Mixtape. You may have heard her on TV show promos.
