Before performing stripped down versions of her hit song “Put the Gun Down” and new single “Love 3x”, Ward told us a bit about her musical upbringing.
“I started out in Glide, Oregon, and played in my dad’s blues band when I was twelve until I started writing my own stuff,” said Ward. “I moved to LA eventually.”
Ward writes crisp lyrics that take the form of narratives, which are heard in the record Til the Casket Drops and her newest album This Means War. In addition to singing with a sweetly heavy alt-soul influence, Ward also plays the guitar, piano, and harmonica.
