ZZ Ward (Zsuzsanna Eva Ward) burst onto the scene with a fiery mixtape in early 2012 – sparking a critical frenzy – and showcasing her soulful take on a blues/hip hop blend, which ultimately led to her critically-acclaimed debut album Til The Casket Drops. Her debut single off the album, “Put The Gun Down,” broke into the Top 10 on the AAA radio chart – staying there for 10 weeks and also made its way into the Top 40 on the Billboard Alternative chart.
A bonafide headliner, ZZ Ward has wrapped numerous sold-out headlining tours, opened for Gary Clark Jr., and is quickly becoming a festival darling – gracing stages from Coachella to Bonnaroo and Made in America. Whether for a vast or intimate crowd, Ward infuses the soulfulness of the blues and the passion of hip-hop icons that inspire her to her music.
In addition to her vast touring schedule, Ward has a multitude of live performances under her belt from Jimmy Kimmel Live to Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Good Morning America, and more. ZZ Ward’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, This Means War, will be released September 18th via Hollywood Records
