ZZ Ward
ZZ Ward
As a singer, she's firmly grounded in tradition, a big, powerful belter in the vein of Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin. There is a familiarity with Ward’s voice in that, at times, she can be compared to Adele with a pinch of Demi Lovato and a dash of Elle King with an American-blues twist.

ZZ packs a powerful set of pipes. More inclined toward the grit of classic Delta blues than Muscle Shoals sheen, Ward isn’t afraid to bend a distorted guitar note or collaborate with artists from other scenes, like Kendrick Lamar. ZZ Ward is known for her singular blend of “honey-smoked vocals," country rock-inspired lyrics, and sizzling harmonica. She's capable of walking the line between sweet, sexy and badass while jumping into modern and retro rock and soul - always performing with her audience in mind. You may have heard her collaboration with Gary Clark Jr. on the 'Cars 3' soundtrack or 'Cryin Wolf' featuring Kendrick Lamar.
