Country / R&B / Singer-Songwriter
ZZ Ward, born Zsuzsanna Eva Ward, is a singer and songwriter from Roseburg, Oregon. One part leading lady, one part sultry blues and R&B emulator, ZZ Ward is known for her singular blend of “honey-smoked vocals” and resonant, country rock-inspired lyrics. Influenced largely by her childhood spent listening to blues played by her father, Ward also cites hip-hop as a genre of inspiration. Her latest album, Til the Casket Drops, was released on October 16, 2012 via Hollywood Records. Her sophomore album This Means War will be released September 18.
